Workpapers are the building blocks of an audit: they must list relevant details so managers and partners are aware of significant transactions and can consider possible ramifications. Poorly prepared workpapers cause inefficiencies for the preparer, reviewer and partner. Overcome these hurdles and get practical guidance on the basics of workpaper preparation and documentation. Take a look at both workpaper form and content so you can properly document critical audit items.

This course is part of the CPE Savers program, seminars led by new MNCPA instructors.
