FAR Masterclass report - 9 October 2019: Masterclass by Kris Hardies and Sanne Janssen on 'Professional Skepticism'

On October 9 2019, Kris Hardies and Sanne Janssen presented their FAR Masterclass on professional skepticism. Professional skepticism is an important topic, which is high on the agenda of regulators and policy makers. A lack of professional skepticism appears to be related to insufficient audit quality. In this masterclass, the importance and difficulties were discussed of applying professional skepticism during an audit. In addition, some insights from current research were presented. Furthermore, potential ways to improve professional skepticism were considered.
