ACCA Exam Tips for Paper P7 June 2014 examinations

Q1 Respond to an email from a partner – possible subject matters include risk of material misstatement, corporate governance and the role of the auditor,

Q2 Practice management, recruitment, training, review

Q3 Discovery of evidence of insider dealing, offences against the Bribery Act and suggested auditor action

Q4 Assurance services, ethical and professional issues and the format of reports for non-audit assignments

Q5 A scenario question with 3 or 4 contentious matters with the requirement of “Comment on the matters above and explain the procedures you should expect
to have been followed”

As a “flyer”, discuss the merits of fixed periods for audit tenure. For the EU students, be aware that the EU parliament has, 3 weeks ago (in April),
approved mandatory audit rotation after 10 years (unusual exemptions may apply) together
with stating the date in the future when the company will start to invite tenders

One more: discuss the merits of the re-introduction of “prudence” into The Framework (it was replaced by “neutrality”)

Remember to take your calculator to the exam and pay great attention to any dates mentioned within the question. Materiality frequently is an issue
within the questions

You really should refresh your memory about accounting standards from P2 course notes or, if you cannot face P2 course notes, then at least look through F7
course notes
