Surgent's How to Do a GAAS Audit (GAAS)

Description:

In arriving at and providing an opinion on the financial statements, auditors follow approximately 1,000 pages of generally accepted auditing standards (GAAS)! It takes a great deal of effort and energy to keep up with the current requirements.

  • Important considerations, determinations and requirements that pertain to each of the seven facets of an audit
