The Guide aims first and foremost to help IFAC member organizations and their members in practice, especially SMPs, with the implementation of ISRS™ 4410 (Revised), Compilation Engagements, which is one of the International Standards on Related Services™ developed exclusively by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB). 

Practitioners can use the Guide as an introduction to compilation engagements, to deepen their prior understanding and knowledge, as a day-to-day reference guide, or as the basis for training modules. The Guide includes practical guidance on the application of the requirements in the standard and “Consider Points,” which offer suggestions to facilitate efficiency and address areas where practitioners often encounter difficulties. Featuring illustrative examples alongside relevant extracts from the standard, the Guide also includes appendices with key checklists and forms that practitioners can use as is or modify to meet the requirements of their particular jurisdiction.
