Internal Audit Reports are the most important communication tool of all Internal Auditors and are addressed to all levels of Senior Management and the Board of Directors. The Internal Audit Reports represent the end result of weeks of reviews, analyses, interviews and discussions. How well you communicate that information is critical to getting the results you are seeking.
A well-written Audit Report can enhance the credibility of both you and the Internal Audit function, whereas a badly written report can have the opposite effect. Internal Audit Reports demonstrate the value of your work as they provide information on the areas you reviewed and that needs to be addressed.
CySEC recently issued additional Guidance (Circular No. C 307) on the treatment of findings and recommendations of the Internal Audit Reports submitted by the Administrative Services Providers (ASPs) as well as the Compliance Officers’ Annual Reports, that all regulated entities should consider and immediately implement corrective measures.
During the seminar participants will gain a good understanding of how to elaborate Internal Audit Reports that conform with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing, how to organize and present their audit findings by sending all the important messages in a way that is generally accepted and to cause action from Senior Management and BOD members, especially in putting corrective action plans.
Participants will also understand how to organize audit reports and how to write with greater clarity, how to present complex information simply for readers to comprehend and how to recognize the needs of their audience.
Furthermore, they will understand how a typical audit report or an executive summary is structured in order to add value in their “internal and external clients”, remaining clear and objective in the way they are written, and avoiding usual mistakes, through participation in highly interactive and practical Case Studies.
The programme is designed to deliver knowledge and enhance participants’ skills via short lectures, case-studies, practical examples, real-life simulations. Participants will also benefit from feedback and take away the knowledge gained to be transferred to their workplace.
Most of the training time will be invested in analysing a real-life case study that will help participants understand how to create class reports that add value and motivates readers to take corrective actions.
This programme may be approved for up to 7 CPD units in Accounting and Auditing. Eligibility criteria and CPD Units are verified directly by your association, regulator or other bodies which you hold membership.
