In this session, we will examine common significant deficiencies and material weaknesses in financial reporting and determine the cause. We will also discuss the differences between significant deficiencies and material weaknesses. We will do a case study of common findings in financial audits and how to avoid them (i.e., having the ability to prepare your own financials, understanding how the financial statements and footnotes connect to each other, understanding the supplemental information that accompanies your financial statements, posting journal entries, understanding the recording of transactions and how they relate to the financial statements, and determining component units).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify and review common errors that auditors find during annual audits and how to avoid them or prepare a response to them.
  2. Explore the difference between a significant deficiency and a material weakness.
  3. Discuss how to respond to audit findings.
