On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of auditing in Ukraine, a conference of the Audit Chamber of Ukraine and the Union of Auditors of Ukraine “25th Anniversary of Auditing in Ukraine: Results and Prospects for Development” occurred on April 21, 2018. The event were also attended by Adamyk Oksana (PhD, Associate Professor Acting Head of the Department of Audit, Control and Analysis) and Markiyan Shchyrba (PhD, Associate Professor of the same Department).
The aim of the conference was to provide participants with reliable information about the current state of auditing in Ukraine, the results obtained for 25 years of work of the industry and the progress of legislative reforms in the field of auditing. The establishment of auditing is associated with the passing the Law of Ukraine “On Auditing” on April 22, 1993. The celebration of the 25th anniversary coincided with the entry into force of the new Law of Ukraine “On Audit of Financial Statements and Auditing”, which was developed to aline national legislation in the field of the audit to EU standards. This sets new challenges for professionals in terms of reforming audit regulators, conducting statutory audits, and improving the quality of audit services.
