Audit Committee Briefing Note – Materiality (January 2014)

Audit Review has long called for greater transparency of information about how materiality
levels are set and revised by external auditors.  We believe that by doing so users of the accounts
will better understand the level of comfort that an audit brings. The Financial Reporting Council
(FRC) has just published its first ‘Thematic Review’ which builds on recent changes to the audit
report.  The Review has been sent to FTSE350 Audit Committee Chairs with encouragement to
consider the content of the report.  This paper is intended to provide an overview briefing for
Audit Committees.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.
