Recurring issues in auditing: back to the future?

Chandler, Roy Anthony and Edwards, John Richard 1996. Recurring issues in auditing: back to the future? Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal 9 (2) , pp. 4-29. 10.1108/09513579610116330

Full text not available from this repository.


Explores the issues which concerned auditing practitioners more than 100 years ago and reexamines them in the present day context. These issues include: the role and scope of the audit, audit independence, the auditor’s report, competition between auditors, litigation against auditors, and governance and regulation of the profession. Many of these concerns remain unresolved. Develops an historical perspective which helps to explain the endurance of these issues and informs policy makers in their endeavour to devise permanent solutions. Examines the determination of the profession′s early leaders to discuss the problem and publicly notes the contrast with the deafening silence emanating from their counterparts today.
