The section informs the reader of the various changes made to AU-C 210, Terms of Engagement, by SAS No. 147 in connection with fraud and noncompliance with laws and regulations. Topics including clarifying requirements and guidance related to a successor auditor’s inquiries of a predecessor auditor, responsibilities of the predecessor auditor to respond to successor auditor inquiries when authorized by management, and more.


Finally, the section discuss amendments made to AU-C 935, Compliance Audits, by SAS No. 148, to reflect changes made by recently issued auditing standards SAS No. 142 and 145. Topics include identifying the specific amendments made to AU-C 935 that are part of AU-C 315, Understanding the

Entity and Its Environment and Assessing the Risks of Material Misstatement. The course also identifies amendments to the appendix to AU-C 935 that identifies AU-C sections that are specific excluded from application to compliance audits.

American CPE Compilation and Review update
I am very positively impressed with the American CPE program. I just started my first course and found it to be very user friendly. Now taking the Compilation and Review Update. Love having the 500+ pages of the program saved on my hard drive. No need to print it all out! The control "F" feature allowing me to go to specific words or phrases is super helpful. The program is well written and has many useful charts, example reports and letters. I recommend this program to all CPAs.
