UK: FRC report - developments in audit 2016/17

The Financial Reporting Council has published the 2016/17 edition of its annual audit developments report. A copy of the full report is available here (pdf) and a summary is available here (pdf). The report notes that the FRC issued more than £14.2 million of sanctions on auditors and audit firms in 2016/17. These sanctions, and the rest of the FRC's work, demonstrate the importance of auditors' professional scepticism and their ability to sufficiently challenge management in an independent and objective way.
