Gun fanatic CEO? Collection of guns implying no strict restrictions for purchase of arms? Sounds suspiciously like the great ‘MURICA!!

Sir, coming back on the self interest threat… Hospitality services. If the client offers to take care of the board and lodging of the audit team at his own cost for the entire duration of the audit. with this constitute an influence to objectivity?

I recommend that you post technical questions for a tutor to the Ask the Tutor Forum (AA) as that is monitored daily (these posts are not).
In answer to your question here, every scenario must be assessed in context. The Code says that the existence and significant of a threat depends on the “nature, value and intent of the offer”. If the client is an “away job” it will in any case pick up the costs of the audit team being accommodated near the client and/or travelling to/from the client – if the audit firm incurs the costs, they will be recharged to the client as expenses. However, it could be that the client can get a better deal on hotel fees and so would prefer to pay for these directly. Or maybe the audit firm charges a standard “per diem” for nights away but the client makes some arrangement for the team to be otherwise catered for, because that could be a cheaper option. If the client were to offer 5* accommodation and gourmet dining then yes, I think that might influence objectivity.

Hi Ken, Thanks for the lecture. Can you let me know what does it mean that ” Gift should only be accepted if its value is trivial and inconsequential to the recipients”.
Many thanks in advance.
