Audit Data Standardization: Is Interoperable Audit Evidence on the Horizon?

Description

In 2012, the AICPA published its first Audit Data Standards – agreements on how accounting software could exchange their data with write-up, analytics, visualization and audit software. This was the latest in a series of published standards to simplify exchanging reliable and reusable data. With the growth of interest in advanced audit data analytics, artificial intelligence-based bookkeeping, accounting and audit, Internet of Things (IoT) and remote data entry and Blockchain-based audit trails, standardized audit evidence can streamline all of these processes.

Learning Objectives
  • Recognize alternatives for accounting and audit data standards, from the AICPA, United Nations, OECD, XBRL and ISO, and how harmonization is possible
  • Identify techniques to leverage existing and emerging standards to streamline internal data archival, migration, integration and consolidation
  • Illustrate how data analytics, when applied to the financial statement audit, can help to automate traditional procedures
Major Topics
  • AICPA Audit Data Standards
  • ERP data
  • Streamlining internal data archival, migration, integration and consolidation
  • Applying data analytics to the financial Statatement audit
  • AICPA’s “Audit Data Analytics to Traditional Procedures Mapping Document”
