The future of audit: market view
Against this backdrop, Mazars commissioned an independent research firm to take the pulse of the global market’s view on the expectations and future direction of audit, inviting stakeholders to consider necessary changes for its evolution.
This recent survey reveals the need for an evolution of audit and clearer guidelines on the scope and means of audit. With 501 responses from 12 countries, this survey sheds critical light on what respondents expect from audit. It highlights six ‘standout findings’, including: the perceived mission of auditors and the expected benefits of a company audit; the value of technology to the auditing process; the most critical skills auditors are expected to bring; how broader audit services would be welcome; and, last but not least, the attitudes and appetites towards rotation and audit reform.
The findings provide insight on four market ‘myths’ surrounding what audit can be expected to achieve, how it is delivered, what areas auditors should cover, and the real appetite for joint audit.
