Preparing for Year End Audit

Wed, 05 Feb 2020 11:00

Now in it's 4th year and fast becoming a 'core' training course. Traditionally a 'must' for Clerks / RFOs who are new to the role, this course has been updated and refreshed to take account of last year's changes to both the audit regime and the External Auditor. As such, the course is designed to also benefit those who are experienced but want to learn from last year's audit experience and to Councillors who want to gain knowledge of the audit regime. The course is designed to be interactive and is delivered by John Marshall, an experienced member of the Northants CALC Internal Audit Service who is also a serving Councillor and a recently retired Clerk / RFO.

Who Should Attend?

The course is particularly suitable for Clerks or Councillors who are fairly new to the year end audit process.

Course Tutor

The course tutor is John Marshall, an experienced clerk and Councillor, as well as an internal auditor with the Northants CALC Internal Audit Service (IAS).
