Sign-Off Report - ASA Requirements

As the auditor completes relevant programs and checklists, the Sign-Off Report automatically indicates which requirements of the Audit Standards have been addressed.

It is designed to allow reviewers to ascertain the progressive completion of the requirements during the engagement and to ensure all requirements of the Standards have been addressed at the completion of the audit.

What happens if a linked procedure is deleted

If a user deletes a procedure that is linked or deletes the entire program, a message will appear saying that the procedure has been deleted. In the Paragraph Addressed column, a drop-down will appear where the auditor can select an appropriate reason why it has been deleted. The options from the drop-down are:

  • Procedure is not considered relevant

  • Balance or disclosure is not material

  • An Alternative procedure has been used
