It is the understanding of the Council that this matter will be addressed by the Commission on Audit itself in due course. Accordingly, the Public Sector Perspective set out at the end of an ISA has not been adopted into the PSAs. PSA 600 Introduction 1. The purpose of this Philippine Standard on Auditing (PSA) is to establish standards and provide guidance when an auditor, reporting on the financial statements of an entity, uses the work of another auditor on the financial information of one or more components included in the financial statements of the entity. This PSA does not deal with those instances where two or more auditors are appointed as joint auditors nor does it deal with the auditor’s relationship with a predecessor auditor. Further, when the principal auditor concludes that the financial statements of a component are immaterial, the standards in this PSA do not apply. When, however, several components, immaterial in themselves, are...
