You and your colleague are required to prepare a preliminary client evaluation report to the senior partners of your auditing firm. This report will be used to determine whether or not the auditing firm should consider tendering for the audit of a well-known bank. Client evaluation includes: identifying risks; assessing competence to perform an audit; and other ethical and legal considerations. Audit firms undertaking bank audits must also comply with a number of additional regulatory requirements. Assuming that the audit for ANZ Bank (Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited) will be coming up for tender, you are required to prepare a report based on your research. This requires extensive research and critical analysis of the annual report and any other information available to present to the senior partners.
The ANZ Bank Annual Report 2015 is available at: http://www.shareholder.anz.com/sites/default/files/2015_annual_report.pdf
