New Zealand: audit quality - perceptions and expectations

The Financial Markets Authority has today published the results of its first research project to explore perceptions of audit quality. Views were sought from investors, directors, managers and auditors. The research reveals very clear differences of opinion - and of expectations - between these groups over (for example) the extent of auditor independence from management, competition and choice in the audit market, and trust in the audit profession. A copy of the report is available here (pdf) and a summary is available here (pdf).
