Hello sir, may I know in which chapter video the discussion of materiality is in? I’m still confused about materiality and how to apply it on auditing. Thank you so much.

See pages 32/33 of Chapter 5

I have a question regarding fees. As you said more audit work will bring more fees enough to cover the work done. But, what if the fees if charged as per the work done would create a self interest threat and be more than 15% of the total fees of the firm? What do we do then?
If you download the notes you will find that you can search on key words – so on page 21 you will find this spelt out – there would have to be appropriate safeguards to reduce the threat to an acceptable level. Examples of safeguards can be found on page 23 – it a threat cannot be sufficiently reduced the audit must be declined/discontinued.

Hi I just want to ask is business risk related to factors like economy, recession, technological change? I was wondering if these factors important to an auditor as they don’t really affect the financial statements

Business risk is important, but NOT ON THE F8 SYLLABUS! Note, however, you can be asked to identify discuss signs of going concern problems.
If you opt for P7, Advanced A & A you will have to deal with it a lot

I just want to know that how the question will come for audit risk and how we need to answer that question?
For eg :- if a question comes that describe six audit risks related to the revenue of the company. Then how we will answer the question?

Audit risk is the risk that there is something wrong in the published FS. So for revenue, think all the ways that the figure could be wrong. This will usually depend on the information given in the scenario. Going through assertions can help:
Incomplete Extra sales (existence) Cut-off errors Not splitting out VAT (accuracy)
are four generic risks.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
In such cases we have to identify the risks from the given scenario and auditor’s response to such risks will be the assertions used by the auditor.
Please correct me if I am wrong

The auditor has no choice about assertions: these are set out in the relevant ISA. All assertions need evidence that they are ‘correct’. The scenario determines which assertions might have the highest risk. For example, it might be concluded that receivables are accurately recorded, but there could still be considerable risk about their valuation (depending on customers etc). High risk implies that more audit work is needed in that area.

Our usual advice is to try a different browser eg Chrome.
Also, I don’t know where you are. Some countries impede video access.
