Programme Objective
 
The second instalment of the Singapore Accountancy and Audit Convention (SAAC) Series focuses on the audit profession in Singapore. With a strong element of public interest, there have been increasing calls for audit to demonstrate greater value.
 
With the theme “Coming to the Fore - Inspiring Quality, Creating Value”, the Conference aims to inspire our audit professionals with our prominent line-up of speakers from both the public and private sectors who will show how auditors can create a significant impact in the work they do to deliver both quality and value to stakeholders. Our seasoned experts will cover a vast array of topics from the auditor’s perspective, ranging from cybersecurity risks, anti-money laundering, corruption, the new leasing standard FRS 116, and more.
 
This flagship event for practitioners and experienced audit professionals sees the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority and Singapore Accountancy Commission coming onboard as Strategic Partners.
 

Programme Outline

  • Sharing of EP 200 Inspection Findings
 
Has our audit profession established robust systems and implemented rigorous checks to address money laundering and terrorist financing concerns? Let’s hear from ACRA who will be sharing the key observations from their inspections.
 
  • Cryptocurrencies – Impact on Accounting and Auditing
 
Amidst a thriving but volatile cryptocurrency market, global accounting standard-setters have been cautious so far in their own discussions on the accounting implications for this industry. Clearly, there is a lack of guidance in current accounting standards, which has resulted in diversity in practice in the accounting for such assets.  The first part of this provides highlights on some of the much debated accounting considerations.
 
Crypto-assets also present unique challenges for the auditing profession.  Aside from the accounting ambiguities, auditors need to address basic fundamentals such as existence, valuation, and rights and obligations, but for a new and volatile type of asset.  Rapidly evolving technology requires auditors to think and act differently in order to achieve the same traditional audit objectives. The second part of this session discusses cryptocurrency audit risks.
 
  • Professional Services ITM – Accountancy Roadmap Sharing 
 
SAC will be sharing the roadmap for accountancy, a key subsector under the Professional Services Industry Transformation Map (ITM). The roadmap charts Singapore’s growth in the accountancy sector towards market leadership over a five to ten year period. It will also provide the direction for firms and individuals to capture opportunities in high-growth areas. Find out more about the roadmap and initiatives under the following key areas: innovation, jobs and skills, productivity and internationalisation in this session.
 
  • Cybersecurity Risks: An Essential Audit Consideration
 
Cybersecurity risks are real threats that can pose immense challenges to businesses in the current IT environment. Audits can also be impacted by cybersecurity risks. How should auditors take into account such risks in their audits? Get insights from an industry expert and rediscover the value audit can bring to your clients.
 
  • Audit Disruption: The Journey Towards Continuous Certification
 
Small businesses form the backbone of Singapore’s economy and will unlock a great source of revenue for professional service providers. The challenge lies with auditors to help their small business clients see value in audit that is beyond mere compliance. The efficiencies and transparency made possible by modern accounting software can help auditors stay connected with their clients, provide data-driven advice, and add even more value. Can auditors assure clients with year-round, continuous certification to help them access capital for growing their business? How will this transform the role of an auditor and their value in the community?
 
  • Ethical Vigilance: Keeping Watch on Corruption
 
Auditors can play a critical role in detecting corrupt practices in their organisations and they must have the moral courage to report it, upholding the highest standard of integrity. Heighten your awareness of corruption and how you can do your part to eradicate it as the CPIB shares about the laws and regulations relating to corruption, implications to auditors, corruption prevention measures as well as case studies.
 
  • How Auditors Can Play a Role in the Cybersecurity Act
 
Audit is an important aspect of good corporate governance. There are already multiple layers of IT audit regimes established within the 11 Critical Information Infrastructure (CII) sectors, responsible for the continuous delivery of essential services in Singapore. Existing sector audit regimes can be tapped to ensure security measures are effective in protecting the CIIs. What is an acceptable standard of practice, and tracking of audit outcomes?
 
  • Staying Safe in the Cyber Space with Good Cyber Hygiene
 
In today’s digital age, cyber attacks have become rather pervasive. Any organisation that has some form of digital presence or operates in the cyber space could potentially be targeted. This segment discusses the importance of cyber hygiene, and the considerations that organisations need to pay close attention to, to properly address and manage cyber risk.
 
  • Enhancing Your AML/CFT Process through Technology
 
By now, professional firms are familiar with the requirements of AML/CFT and have taken active steps to implement AML/CFT processes in their businesses.  With the right tools, AML/CFT processes can be made more efficient for Customer Due Diligence, screening and ongoing monitoring.  This session will share the current technologies that can be used by practitioners to enhance their AML/CFT processes.
 
  • Building a Robust Personal Data Protection Infrastructure
 
Data is an engine of growth in today’s digital economy, bringing forth wide-ranging benefits and opportunities to businesses and the society. A robust personal data protection infrastructure is an important foundation for the data ecosystem to thrive, and organisations have a shared responsibility in building up the trust quotient for it to be sustainable. This session covers PDPC’s pro-innovation regulations and how organisations can demonstrate accountability in data protection.
 
  • FRS 116 Leases: Through the Eyes of Auditors
 
The new Leases standard is expected to have impact on the financial statements of entities with lease arrangements. Auditors should have a good understanding of FRS 116 in order to audit their clients under this new standard. This session will focus on FRS 116 from the auditor’s perspective with highlights of the key areas of this new standard, implications to the financial statements of entities as well as the practical challenges and considerations for auditors.
