Threats to auditor independence

(Conceptual framework)

(1) Self-interest threat: Occurs when the audit firm or a member of the audit team could benefit from a financial interest in, or other self-interest conflict with an audit client.

(2) Self-review threat: Occurs when the audit firm, or an individual audit team member, is put in a position of reviewing subject matter for which the firm or individual was previously responsible, and which is significant in the context of the audit engagement.

(3) Advocacy threat: Occurs when the audit firm, or a member of the audit team, promotes, or may be perceived to promote, an audit client’s position or opinion.

(4) Familiarity threat: Occurs when, by virtue of a close relationship with an audit client, its directors, officers or employees, an audit firm or a member of the audit team becomes too sympathetic to the client’s interests.

(5) Intimidation threat: Occurs when a member of the audit team may be deterred from acting objectively and exercising professional skepticism by threats, actual or perceived, from the directors, officers or employees of an audit client.

(Specific threats)

(1) Financial interest in a client. Auditor owns shares in a client company.

(2) Loans and guarantees. Auditor loans money to or receives loans from a client company.

(3) Close business relationships. Auditor partner is director of a client company.
