The IAASB is seeking perspectives from all of its stakeholders across the financial reporting ecosystem on whether the International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) related to fraud and going concern need to be updated to reflect the rapidly evolving external reporting landscape, and, if so, in what areas. This Discussion Paper sets out the issues and challenges related to the expectation gap (the difference between what users of the financial statements expect and the financial statement audit) and explores some possible actions that the IAASB could undertake to help narrow the expectation gap.
