Preparing an audit report for a group: separate audit reports for the group and parent company
This guide was last updated in September 2018 and is based on the relevant laws and regulations that apply as at 1 September 2018. The only changes since the last version of the guide are to the use of the audit report section to reflect the release of Technical Release 01/03AAF (Revised).
This guide is designed to explain the main changes that are needed to the separate audit reports of a group and parent company compared to that of a company only. It does not seek to explain every difference, just the key areas to consider as a result of the differing legal and regulatory requirements.
