Description

Optimizing audit quality is a common objective for all auditors, this is where the concept of data analytics becomes a useful tool for external auditors. Data analytics is made up of tools that extract, authenticate and examine large volumes of data. A recent publication by ICAEW stated that data analytics is making radical changes to large external audits and that it is only a matter of time until such tools become available for SMEs. How will auditing standards be affected by this and what does this mean for the future of the audit profession?
