Understand how to carefully scrutinize the underlying documentation for fixed assets to be sure that the costs should be capitalized and not expensed.
Be up to date with the new lease standard to understand the new accounting treatment of leases and the common auditing procedures involved. And appreciate the potential of audit data analytics in the property, plant, and equipment cycle.
