ABSTRACT

Zoom Snowboards Incorporated is a fictitious Canadian private company in the snowboard industry. While the company is fictitious, many of the facts are adopted from actual snowboard companies. The overall goal of this case is to give the students an opportunity to develop their ability to perform a rigorous analysis of an assurance case with multiple issues. Students assume the role of audit senior and are asked to prepare an audit planning memo for the partner. In order to perform a rigorous analysis, students will need to consider the broader issues related to business strategy, risk management, and corporate governance, as well as the regular components of an audit planning memo. Students will also need to consider how the various requests from client management, the bank, and the audit committee impact the financial statement audit as they are preparing their planning memo.
