Ascertain the reporting objectives of the engagement to plan the timing of the audit and the nature of the communications required;
Example
 The entity’s timetable for reporting, such as at interim and final stages.
 The organization of meetings with management and those charged with governance to discuss the nature, timing and extent of the audit work.
 The discussion with management and those charged with governance regarding the expected type and timing of reports to be issued and other communications, both written and oral, including the auditor’s report, management letters and communications to those charged with governance.
 The discussion with management regarding the expected communications on the status of audit work throughout the engagement.
