The final step is to request documents that can be used in the following year's audit. Use the A630Q Request for records and documents - permanent file to request documents. Note that the documents requested in this step are generally applicable for multiple years. For example, the Business plan, Organization chart and Corporate bylaws.

For information on how to request documents and client collaboration, see Collect information from the client.

This is not an optional step. Auditors are required to request this information. The A630Q query document is available if the user answers either High or Limited client collaboration in the A100 Optimizer checklist - Initial Engagement Decisions checklist.
