UK: FRC publishes update on developments in audit

The Financial Reporting Council has today published an update in relation to its audit work (and its role as the competent authority for audit): see here (pdf). The update notes that some investors have raised concerns that not all audit firms serve investor interests in dealing with perceived conflicts of interest. It is also explained that in 2017/18 the FRC will review the effectiveness of the governance and culture of the eight firms adopting the Audit Firm Governance Code.
