Audit of Insurance Brokers


The Statutory Duty Confirmation, prepared by the auditor, must be filed with the Central Bank within two months of the intermediary’s financial year end.   True or False?

Well the answer is ‘False’.

The audit of insurance brokers is a quite onerous assignment as such entities are treated as ‘large’ companies, no matter what their actual turnover, under the Companies Act, 2014.

So to sort out your ‘HPR’ (that’s the Central Bank Handbook of Prudential Regulation) from your M46 (the Statutory Duty Reporting guidance from the CAI), go see our online webinar on the Audit of Insurance Brokers where you may download the slides and support materials, all for just €45.
