Podcast: Inside Accountancy Episode 5 – Can technology solve the audit crisis?

In the latest podcast we talk to Katie Canell and Simon Cleveland from Deloitte about whether technology can solve the audit crisis and what role humans still have to play in audit.

Podcast: Inside Accountancy Episode 5 – Can technology solve the audit crisis?

In the latest episode of Inside Accountancy, Accountancy Age’s reporter Tom Lemmon talks to Simon Cleveland, UK Public Policy and Regulatory Lead at Deloitte, and Katie Canell, Managing Director, UK Audit Innovation at Deloitte, about the role technology could play in solving the audit crisis.

Technology is dramatically changing how businesses work, and that in turn is transforming how audit needs to function. In the wake of a string of audit scandals, can technology provide a route out of the crisis?

In this thought-provoking podcast, we discuss:

  • Whether audit is particularly prone to error
  • What the key technological developments are that will change audit
  • What technology can’t solve
  • How any reform should be made with regard to technology
  • Whether technology can remove issues of culture in audit
