As part of the CPA profession’s 6-Point Plan to Improve Audits, the AICPA will present a free webcast, “Drive Your Competitive Edge with Audit Quality,” on Thursday, July 30 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET.

The webcast, which offers two free CPE credits, will help CPAs enhance the quality of their firms’ audit practices. They’ll gain a better understanding of the requirements of Statements on Quality Control Standard No. 8; hear tips on how to identify and address risks in their system of quality control; and learn about engagement acceptance policies and proposal strategies.

Viewers of “Drive Your Competitive Edge with Audit Quality” will receive access to the Invigorate the Focus on Quality Toolkit – a host of resources that firms can implement immediately to boost audit quality. Tools include a Tone at the Top Action Plan and tips on how to avoid issues in your next peer review. Also included are grab-and-go tools to enhance engagement acceptance policies and identify risks in your practice.
