The objective of ISA 330 is to gather adequate appropriate audit evidence about assessed risks of material misstatement, by designing and putting in place appropriate responses to the risks. Here on MCQs.club we have designed easily understandable Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQs) on ISA 330 revised IFAC that cover the ISA 330 summary, ISA 330 MCQs with answers. These MCQs are a basis of conclusion and Analysis of ISA 330 and Mapping Document.

  1. The objective of ISA 330 is to gather adequate appropriate audit evidence about assessed risks of material misstatement, by designing and putting in place appropriate responses to the risks.
    1. True
    2. False
  1. The auditor must amend the audit approach in response to risk assessment to ensure they detect the material misstatements in the financial statements. They can achieve this by:
    1. Emphasising the need for professional scepticism.
    2. Assigning more experienced staff to complex or risky areas of the engagement.
    3. Incorporating additional elements of unpredictability in the selection of further audit procedures.
    4. Making changes to the nature, timing or extent of audit procedures
    5. All of the above
  1. The higher the risk of material misstatement, the more likely it is that the auditor may decide it is more effective to perform substantive procedures nearer to, or at, the period end rather than at an earlier date.
    1. The above statement is correct
    2. The above statement is incorrect
  1. A number of key benefits may arise from spreading the work across interim and final audit such as:
    1. More flexible resource planning within the firm

    4. Increased audit efficiency
    5. All of the above
  1. Typical interim audit procedures include:

    2. Recording, evaluating the design and testing the entity’s system of internal control.
    3. Performing substantive testing to ensure the books and records are a sound basis for performing the year end audit.
    4. All of the above
  1. Which of the following is correct regarding the impact of interim audit work on the final audit?
    1. If the controls tested at the interim stage provided evidence that control risk is low, fewer substantive procedures can be performed.
    2. If substantive procedures were performed at the interim stage, fewer procedures will be required at the final audit in general.
    3. Both A&B
    4. None
  1. Typical final audit procedures include:
    1. Substantive testing.
    2. Analytical review and subsequent events review

    4. None
  1. Auditors can obtain assurance from:
    1. Tests of control
    2. Substantive procedures
    3. Both A&B
    4. None
  1. Tests of control –
    1. are designed to evaluate the operating effectiveness of controls in preventing or detecting and correcting material misstatement.
    2. are designed to detect material misstatement at the assertion level.
    3. Both A&B
    4. None
  1. Substantive procedures –
    1. are designed to evaluate the operating effectiveness of controls in preventing or detecting and correcting material misstatement.

    4. All of the above

    3. Both A&B
    4. None
