IAASB Communique Details Plans to Develop Separate Standard for Audits of Less Complex Entities

Dec 15, 2020 | New York, New York | English

During its December 2020 meeting, the IAASB held its first public discussions on the draft of a separate standard being developed for an audit of less complex entities and the official project proposal to complete and publish the draft standard for public consultation in 2021. The IAASB approved the project proposal and early draft.

Following these decisions, the IAASB today published a new communique detailing plans for the new standard, including current thinking on what the standard will look like, what entities it will apply to, and the development timeline.

For additional information on the IAASB’s efforts to balance the needs of all its stakeholders by addressing complexity, understandability, scalability and proportionality in the International Standards on Auditing, please see its November 2020 communique.
