The Companies Act, 2013 and the Rules thereunder have cast onerous responsibilities on the statutory auditors of the Companies. These include reporting on the adequacy and operating effectiveness of the internal financial controls in the auditor’s report and reporting on frauds to the Central Government. The Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (“the Board”) has already released Guidance Notes on these matters.
To create awareness about the changes and to provide the members with adequate guidance on the aforesaid aspects, the Board is proposing to organise workshops/ training programmes across the country and for doing so, create a pool of resources who would act as faculty for such workshops/ training programmes. For this purpose, the Board is organising a “Residential Orientation Program for the Faculty - Reporting on Internal Financial Controls over Financial Reporting and Reporting on Fraud under The Companies Act, 2013”.
The schedule of the Programme is as follows:

Interested Members who:
