Ensure you have the most current authoritative guidance on audit sampling.
The AICPA Audit Guide Audit Sampling, , summarizes applicable requirements and practices, and delivers "how-to" advice to help auditors apply nonstatistical and statistical sampling in auditing. The Guide includes case studies illustrating the use of different sampling methods, including classical variables sampling and monetary unit sampling, in real world situations.
This AICPA Audit Guide has been fully updated to reflect the new standards resulting from the Clarity Project. Fully incorporating the clarified auditing standards into this edition of the guide enables auditors to further their understanding of these recently issued auditing standards, as well as begin updating their audit methodologies, resources, and tools prior to the clarified auditing standards’ effective date. Additionally, this approach gives auditors the opportunity to review and understand the changes made by their third-party audit methodology and resource providers, if applicable. The clarified auditing standards are effective for audits of financial statements for periods ending on or after December 15, 2012 (calendar year 2012 audits).
The appendixes include sampling tables and information about other testing considerations that practitioners encounter when using sampling techniques when performing audits, including sequential sampling for tests of controls and multilocation sampling considerations. A subject index has been added to the Guide for ease of use.
