FEE-ICAS breakfast debate
FEE and ICAS jointly organised a Breakfast Debate on ‘Assurance on Narrative Reporting’ on Thursday 26 September 2013, 8.15 – 10.30 CEST, at Silken Berlaymont Hotel in Brussels.
The value of the audit process to stakeholders and users of financial statements has been called into question by some.
This breakfast debate was the opportunity to discuss whether assurance on other reporting is the way forward to better meet stakeholders’ needs.
Indeed, there appears to be a growing demand amongst users for the involvement of the auditor on narrative reporting with a provision of ‘positive assurance’, similar to the one provided on the financial statements.
