Identifying Value-add Services During an Audit 

CPAs providing audit services can provide superior client service by identifying value added services that can help clients achieve their goals. As new pronouncements are issued impacting clients, CPAs can provide implementation services to assist clients in adopting standards while insuring they maintain their independence. In this course, we review how nonaudit services impact independence. We will also ensure attendees understand what is and is not in within the scope of an audit and what steps they can take to identify and prevent scope creep, while identifying value-added upsell opportunities. This interactive webinar will help attendees think differently about compliance verses value. 

Learning Objectives

  • Identify and sell consulting opportunities
  • Describe how non-audit services impact independence
