Completion and Archive

The archive and lock feature in MyWorkpapers allows you to set the file to lock down after a predetermined number of days from the audit report signing date.

This ensures that after the legislated allowable period in which the engagement team is allowed to make administrative changes to the file, the file is set to a read-only mode, protecting it from accidental amendments and ensures the integrity of the data of the file.

Once the file has been set to read-only, you are still able to print and save the file as a PDF, as well as gain general access to it.

File Completion

  1. Ensure the engagement partner has marked the file as complete;

  2. Ensure a copy of the signed report is uploaded to the file;

  3. From the top navigation bar, go to File menu and select Completion and Archive;



  4. If you are in a SMSF File you are able to complete the following fields. This information populates into the SMSF Administrator view;

  5. The audit partner can sign-off the engagement file. The date of partner sign-off populates to the below Step 3 ‘Audit Report Date’;

Archive and Lock File

By completing the file sign-off, the archive and lock fields will automatically populate based on Australia or UK and Ireland 60 days (per the Auditing Standards) and the date of file sign-off. These fields will save and the file will lock after 60 days. No further steps are required to be completed.

To change the date that the file is archived, see below.
