Course Description

Auditing - Ability to Continue as a Going Concern is a CPE webinar that will review the auditor’s responsibility in evaluating an entity’s ability to continue as a going concern. This webinar will review the procedures that may identify conditions and events which may indicate there could be substantial doubt and outline what the auditor should document in these cases. This webinar will review circumstances in which an auditor may express a qualified versus an unqualified opinion. This webinar will discuss the factors related to the principal auditor’s decision to make or not make reference to another auditor and the necessary procedures in either case. Finally, this webinar will review several questions and interpretations within the scope of SAS No. 64.
