Chartered Accountants Program Audit & AssuranceAAA118 Main exam suggested solutionsPage 7 Question 4 (20 marks)Part A (13 marks)(a) The appropriate Standard is ISRE 2410, ASRE 2410, or NZ SRE 2410because the engagement was to review historical financial information and B+ is the auditor of the entity.(b) The appropriate benchmark is revenue. Benchmark for materiality in a review engagement is determined using professional judgement and the needs of the users of financial statements. In this scenario, the users of the financial statements are the same group that was considered when determining materiality for the audit. Therefore, it would be appropriate for the selected benchmark to remain the same as in the audit. In addition, revenue is the most appropriate benchmark due to volatility in profit. Materiality for the half year review is calculated as 1% of revenue of $239 million = $2.39 million.(c) Below are five of the most commonly accepted responses.
