SA-560 “Subsequent Events” deals with the auditor’s responsibilities relating to subsequent events in an audit of financial statements.
Financial statements may be affected by certain events that occur after the date of the financial statements. Many financial reporting frameworks specifically refer to such events. Such financial reporting frameworks ordinarily identify two types of events:
(a) Those that provide evidence of conditions that existed at the date of the financial statements; and
(b) Those that provide evidence of conditions that arose after the date of the financial statements.
The objectives of the auditor are to:
(a) Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence about whether events occurring between the date of the financial statements and the date of the auditor’s report that require adjustment of, or disclosure in, the financial statements are appropriately reflected in those financial statements; and
(b) Respond appropriately to facts that become known to the auditor after the date of the auditor’s report, that, had they been known to the auditor at that date, may have caused the auditor to amend the auditor’s report.
