KPMG Investigated For Carillion Accounts Shockers

KPMG Investigated For Carillion Accounts Shockers
Jan 30
2018
👤 by Brian Shillibeer

The Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has decided, following enquiries made since a profit warning in July 2017, to open an investigation under the Audit Enforcement Procedure in relation to KPMG’s audit of the financial statements of Carillion plc.

The investigation will cover the years ended 31 December 2014, 2015 and 2016, and additional audit work carried out during 2017.

The investigation will be conducted by the FRC’s Enforcement Division, and will consider whether the auditor has breached any relevant requirements, in particular the ethical and technical standards for auditors.

Several areas of KPMG’s work will be examined including the audit of the company’s use and disclosure of the going concern basis of accounting, estimates and recognition of revenue on significant contracts, and accounting for pensions.

 

Accountancy Scheme

The FRC is progressing with urgent enquiries into the conduct of professional accountants within Carillion in connection with the preparation of the financial statements and other financial reporting obligations under the Accountancy Scheme.

An FRC spokesperson said: "The FRC is liaising closely with the Official Receiver, the Financial Conduct Authority, the Insolvency Service and The Pensions Regulator to ensure that there is a joined-up approach to the investigation of all matters arising from the collapse of Carillion."
