PSA 510 (Redrafted) 2 Introduction Scope of this PSA 1. This Philippine Standard on Auditing (PSA) deals with the auditor’s responsibilities relating to opening balances when conducting an initial audit engagement. In addition to financial statement amounts, opening balances include matters requiring disclosure that existed at the beginning of the period, such as contingencies and commitments. When the financial statements include comparative financial information, the requirements and guidance in [proposed] PSA 710 (Redrafted) 1 also apply. PSA 300 (Redrafted) 2 includes additional requirements and guidance regarding activities prior to starting an initial audit. Effective Date 2. This PSA is effective for audits of financial statements for periods beginning on or after December 15, 2009. Objective 3. In conducting an initial audit engagement, the objective of the auditor with respect to opening balances is to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence about whether: (a) Opening balances contain misstatements that materially affect the current period’s financial statements; and (b) Appropriate accounting policies reflected in the opening balances have been consistently applied in the current period’s financial statements, or changes thereto are properly accounted for and adequately presented and disclosed in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework. Definitions 4. For the purposes of the PSAs, the following terms have the meanings attributed below: (a) Initial audit engagement – An engagement in which either: (i) The financial statements for the prior period were not audited; or (ii) The financial statements for the prior period were audited by a predecessor auditor.

    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.
