Add auditor details

After you select the Add Auditor button, you will see the Auditor Details screen.

This is the only screen on which you can input or modify auditor details.

Auditor details - screen 2

You need to:

  • enter all mandatory details. You will not be able to save until all the mandatory information has been entered. A phone or mobile number must be entered as 10 numerals without spaces. Your membership number and association details are mandatory
  • enter the firm you work for and the ABN if required or, if you are a sole practitioner, you can enter your ABN
  • select Save after the mandatory information has been entered or select Cancel if you do not want to stay on this screen.

Update Auditor Details

After selecting the Update Auditor button, you will see the Auditor Details screen with the selected auditor details populated. You can view this screen and cancel or change details and save them.

Update the details required and select Save. Save will not be enabled if details have not changed. If details have changed and mandatory fields have not been completed, you will not be able to save until you have entered the required details.

Auditor details will be updated for all In-progress Reports and In-progress Advices.

Delete Auditor

When an auditor is deleted, they will no longer appear in the auditor drop-down list and the auditor details will be removed from all in-progress reports and in-progress advices. However, all ACRs and ACAs that have been lodged will have the auditor details fixed within the saved file.

Any reports that have not been lodged that contain the deleted auditor details will have the auditor details removed. This is the case for both in-progress and completed jobs.

You can only delete an auditor from the Auditors screen.
