1 QUALITY REVIEW PROGRAM REVIEW OF FORENSIC ACCOUNTING ENGAGEMENT QUESTIONNAIRE

2 2 Quality Review Program Review of forensic accounting engagement questionnaire Review Code(s) Reviewer Review Date INTRODUCTION Forensic Accounting Services as defined in APES 215 means Expert Witness Services, Lay Witness Services, Consulting Expert Services and Investigation Services. In the context of APES 215, such professional services mean services requiring accountancy or related skills performed by a member including accounting, auditing, taxation, management consulting and financial management services. They do not include legal services or formal insolvency appointments. The reviewer may not always have unrestricted access to the engagement file/s due to the often confidential nature of this type of engagement. Where access is limited, the review may need to be carried out in the form of an interview with the member. Where there are two or more partners, separate questionnaires for each partner must be completed. The questionnaire should be marked Y, N, or N/A. In the event that any commentary is provided it should be clearly referenced to the particular question in the questionnaire. All non-compliance with mandatory professional or legislative requirements is to be reported in the quality review report. The reviewer is advised to comment on all non-mandatory breaches in the Other Matters Report. Care should also be taken to ensure that the engagement files reviewed are finalised files, as to review a current file risks the loss of legal professional privilege.
