Adding Financial Forms to a Client Profile

Published:  03/06/2021

  Instructions:

The financial forms available for selection for South African banks on Confirmation are in line with IRBA South African Audit Practice Statement 6 (SAAPS 6). You will need to select the correct financial form, depending on what you wish to request a confirmation for.

Note: Some banks may accept a form type on an entity-wide level and others may require an individual form type per account.

  • Individual Account Basis: The bank can only extract form details on an individual account basis. Auditors therefore need to set up and request confirmation on each account number as a separate form.
  • Entity Wide Basis: The bank can extract form details on an entity wide basis. Auditors can therefore send a single form of the form type using a main account/reference number. As information is supplied on an entity wide basis all other account numbers do not need to be supplied.
 
  1. Select the “add” button located in the Accounts block.
