Auditing Accounting Estimates
The increasingly complex business environment and changes in accounting practices mean that auditors need a more robust approach to identifying, assessing and responding to risks of material misstatement for accounting estimates and related disclosures.

International Standard on Auditing 540 (Revised) is effective for audits of financial statements for periods beginning on or after December 15, 2019.
