Auditor “whistleblowing” under scrutiny

During 2017 the Charity Commission issued updated guidance concerning the “whistleblowing” responsibilities of auditors and independent examiners. Recent reports from the Commission suggest that there are concerns over the absence of reporting by auditors under the new guidance. The new rule of thumb appears to be “if in doubt, report it.”

The responsibility of trustees to report on Serious Incidents is closely linked to this and, whilst we are not one of the firms identified in the Commission’s findings, we are keen to ensure that our clients fully understand both their and our responsibilities.
