As a result of the significant influence of actuaries on policy liabilities and the related earnings in the financial statements of a listed South African long-term insurer, auditors encounter a number of key issues and considerations relating to the incorporation of actuarial expertise in the audit process. Guidance for auditors to address these issues and considerations is discussed in this study. The guidance was developed as a significant element of a wider research project, the objective of which was the development of a best practice framework for the formulation of overall audit strategies for insurance contracts and the related earnings of listed South African long-term insurers.
