ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Audit Quality Forum, organized by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales, has called for changes in the British corporate law to enable shareholders to interrogate auditors at annual general meetings. Under the proposals, which aim to increase shareholders' trust in the financial results of companies while justifying the process of preparing corporate accounts, shareholders would be able to submit questions in writing to auditors of listed companies via the company prior to the annual general meeting, and ask follow-up questions at the event.
