This guide is designed to explain the main changes that are needed to the audit report when an auditor considers it necessary to issue a modified opinion on the financial statements due to a material misstatement in the financial statements. The example chosen to illustrate the amendments needed to a modified opinion is where there is a material deficiency in the information relating to related party transactions that is required to be disclosed by the financial reporting framework.
