Advancing Investor Trust in Auditor Independence

How far should New Zealand go? 

New international standards on auditor independence requirements will lift the bar — but is it high enough?   

While the new standards go some way towards strengthening auditor independence, investors and shareholders in New Zealand have signalled they want tighter controls in place. 

XRB has responded by coming up with additional requirements. 

Do the proposed additional amendments go far enough?   

We hosted an interactive panel discussion on 16 September. 

Here you can hear a range of perspectives on this important issue as well as the opportunity to directly influence the XRB’s proposal.
