SAICA Comment Letter on the IESBA definition of Engagement Team and Group Audits
The proposed revisions to the International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants (including International Independence Standards) (the Code) establish provisions that comprehensively address independence considerations for firms and individuals involved in an engagement to perform an audit of group financial statements. The proposals also address the independence implications of the change in the definition of an engagement team―a concept central to an audit of financial statements―in the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board’s (IAASB) International Standard on Auditing (ISA) 220, Quality Management for an Audit of Financial Statements.
