ISA 800 (Revised) deals with special considerations in the application of the ISAs to an audit of financial statements that are prepared in accordance with a special purpose framework.

It includes limited amendments to provide clarity about how the new and revised Auditor Reporting standards apply in the context of special purpose financial statements. These amendments are not intended to substantively change the underlying premise of these engagements in accordance with the extant ISAs.

ISA 800 (Revised) is effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2016.

A staff-prepared Basis for Conclusions document explains the IAASB's rationale for the changes to the standard.
