Abstract [en]

The unexpected outbreak of Covid19 that came in 2020 affected the entire world's population, industries and companies overnight. The auditing industry and its auditors have also been affected by the pandemic and the following crisis. Due to the crisis caused by the pandemic, many company managements have had to rethink and develop new strategies for continued operations. The audit companies and their auditors have been forced to make a digital transition and work remotely using digital tools to continue the audit work. The purpose of the study is to try to assess auditors' perceived change in the audit process and quality in connection with the digital transition that took place during Covid 19. We also want to see if the effects can be explained based on IT application and use depending on agency affiliation, as previous research indicates that smaller audit firms are better at IT implementation, use and are quicker to change. The study uses a qualitative research method in the form of semistructured interviews. The results were obtained by seven authorized auditors from audit firms of various sizes in Sweden. The conclusion that can be drawn from the study is that the pandemic has been a catalyst for digitization in t he auditing industry. Of the three parts of the audit process, the review phase was the most affected part, where the exchange of information was made more difficult, which led to longer lead times. The quality has not suffered to a large extent. It can be noted that there is a certain difference in digital conditions between audit firms.
