Providing guidance on the procedures to be followed when undertaking accountancy assignments in unregulated areas.
In all professional work there are two main risks: the risk of an error being made; and the risk of that error being overlooked. The former is impossible to eliminate – errors will always be made – but the risk of such errors occurring can be reduced by standardising systems and procedures in line with current best practice.
There are two other risks inherent in accountancy work: the risk of legal action by the client; and of regulatory action by the firm’s professional body. Both of these risks only come into play if the error eludes the control system. The General Practice Procedures Manual provides organised work methods which will help to keep those risks to a minimum level. It also recognises that the practice is a commercial enterprise, and that the standardisation of systems will improve efficiency. Wherever appropriate, relevant regulations and ethical guidance have also been taken into account.
The manual provides standardised non-audit documentation, together with practical checklists and specimen reports and letters.
The manual is suitable for both ICAEW and ACCA member firms.
The General Practice Procedures Manual provides you with extensive guidance and ready-to-use templates in a range of areas including:
• Office procedures
• Quality Assurance
• Accounts preparation
• Audit exempt companies
• Management accounts
• Corporation tax
• The Clients' Money Regulations
• And much more
As well as a huge range of guidance, the manual also gives you instant access to over 200 ready-to-use templates, letters and forms, including such things as:
• Client engagement letters
• Standard terms of business
• Model accounts and disclosure checklists for audit exempt companies
