CaseWare India FAQ

How do you ensure your CaseWare Engagement file(s) compliant with the SAs? (6-100)

The Audit System compliance document, 6-100 Sign-off Report - SA Requirements, lists every requirement of the SAs (Indian Auditing Standards) and automatically indicates which ones have been addressed, as the auditor completes relevant workpapers in the engagement. It is designed to allow reviewers to ascertain the progressive completion of the SA requirements during the engagement and to ensure all mandatory requirements of the Standards have been addressed at the completion of the audits.


In many cases, there will be SA standards that are not applicable on engagements. When this is the case, these standards can be hidden within this document by performing the following



  1. Select Options | Select Inapplicable Standards from the menus
  2. Select any standards that are not applicable to the audit, then click OK
  3. Select Options | Hide Inapplicable Standards from the menus to hide them from view.

Based on the response in OPT Optimiser Checklist the optimiser may remove workpapers associated with non-mandatory SA Standards (e.g. Related Parties (SA 550), or Service organisations (SA 402).


Consequently, the 6-100 workpaper will remove all SA requirements from the document,the irrelevant SA programs / checklist will be marked for deletion.

What is Linked?

By scrolling through 6-100, it is possible to see where in Audit System each requirement is referenced. In programs and checklists, procedures that reference requirements are bold and contain the paragraph reference, as shown below.



Other workpapers like 1-310 Engagement Letter (SA 210) and the 4-150 Summary of identified misstatements (SA 450) sign off the majority of the standard via the document sign-off.




What if a Linked Procedure is Deleted?


If a user deletes a procedure that is linked to 6-100 (or deletes the entire program), the "Doc. Refs' column will be blank and the message shown below will be displayed in red. In the 'Paragraph Addressed" column, a picklist will appear where the auditor can select an appropriate reason why it has been deleted.




For those deleted procedures there will be an option for Bulk response or a Bulk comment shown as below :
