Workpapers are the building blocks of an audit. If it’s not in the workpapers, the manager and partner might not know about it or consider its ramifications. A badly prepared workpaper is a time-waster for managers and partners, so training in proper workpaper preparation is critical.

Make this course part of the firm’s quality control system. Learn the fundamentals of workpaper preparation – form and content – to make sure everything is properly documented. You will also explore examples which show field work supervisors what factors to consider and what steps to follow when reviewing workpapers. In addition, typical workpaper deficiencies are explained to help minimize potential liability.
