maam when there is management expert why does auditor need to obtain alternative sources of evidence, apart from valuation report? Is It because of a potential for valuation report to be biased?
and does the auditor look out other audit evidence in case of auditor’s expert?
If valuation is material, auditor cannot simply “tick a box” and conclude that because an expert puts a value of $20m on a property, for example, that that is sufficient. See last section of Chapter 23 starting “The auditor must evaluate the adequacy of the expert’s work including:” for further requirements.
