This PAPN does not establish any new basic principles or essentials procedures its purpose is to assist auditors, and to develop good practice, by providing guidance on the application of the PSAs when conducting an audit of financial statements. The auditor exercises professional judgement to determine the extent to which any of the audit procedures described in this Notes may be appropriate in the light of the requirements of the PSAs and the entity’s particular circumstances.
This PAPN of the AASC is not based on specific International Auditing Practice Notes (IAPN) issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board of the International Federation of Accountants but was issued to address a specific situation in the Philippines.
