CHAPTER 17 COMPLETING THE ENGAGEMENT 17-6 Auditing standards (AU 329), require that the auditor perform analytical procedures at the final review stage of the audit. The objective of conducting final analytical procedures near the end of the engagement is to help the auditor assess the conclusions reached on the financial statement components and evaluate the overall financial statement presentation. 17-9 Three overall steps in the going-concern evaluation process are as follows: 1. Consider whether the results of audit procedures performed during the planning, performance, and completion of the audit indicate whether there is substantial doubt about the entity's ability to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time not to exceed one year. 2. If there is substantial doubt, the auditor should obtain information about management's plans to mitigate the going-concern problem and assess the likelihood that such plans can be implemented.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
