Sep 28, 2020 | New York, New York | English

The Technology Working Group of the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) today released non-authoritative support for using automated tools and techniques when performing audit procedures

The publication assists auditors in understanding whether a procedure involving automated tools and techniques may be both a risk assessment procedure and a further audit procedure. It also provides specific considerations when using automated tools and techniques in performing substantive analytical procedures in accordance with International Standard on Auditing 520, Analytical Procedures.

This publication does not amend or override the ISAs, the texts of which alone are authoritative. Reading the publication is not a substitute for reading the ISAs.
