Financial Systems and Auditing

...Task 1 Introduction: Auditing is an accounting system which is used in business. It made by an independent group or body to examine a business' financial transactions and statements. The only purpose of auditing is to present an accurate account of a company's financial business transactions. This practice is used for companies to make sure that they are trading financially fairly and also that the accounts they are presenting to the general public or shareholders are true and justified. These financial auditing results can be presented to shareholders, banks and anyone else with an interest in the company. One of the main reasons for a financial audit is to ensure that the company is not making any fraud. This is why the financial auditing body should be an independent third party. AR = Audit risk: is the risk that the auditor will incorrectly issue an unqualified opinion. IR = Inherent risk: is the risk of material misstatements absent any internal controls or testing. CR = Control risk: is the risk that internal controls will fail to prevent or detect material misstatement. DR = Detection risk: is the risk that audit tests will fail to detect material misstatement. i) In this planning of the audit, the three audit areas which appear to have high inherent risk in my opinion are: 1. Sales system: Gala restaurant is owned by husband and wife, and each of them has a 50% of the company share and they are both directors of the company, Gala has been making good......

...Chapter 1 - The Demand for Audit and Other Assurance Services 1-1 The relationship among audit services, attestation services, and assurance services is reflected in Figure 1-3 on page 13 of the text. An assurance service is an independent professional service to improve the quality of information for decision makers. An attestation service is a form of assurance service in which the CPA firm issues a report about the reliability of an assertion that is the responsibility of another party. Audit services are a form of attestation service in which the auditor expresses a written conclusion about the degree of correspondence between information and established criteria. The most common form of audit service is an audit of historical financial statements, in which the auditor expresses a conclusion as to whether the financial statements are presented in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. An example of an attestation service is a report on the effectiveness of an entity’s internal control over financial reporting. There are many possible forms of assurance services, including services related to business performance measurement, health care performance, and information system reliability. 1-2 An independent audit is a means of satisfying the need for reliable information on the part of decision makers. Factors of a complex society which contribute to this need are: 1. Remoteness of information a. Owners (stockholders)......

...about the entity’s operations for decision making. 3. Compliance with Laws and Regulations Section 404 of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act requires all public companies to issue a report about the operating effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting. In addition to the legal provisions of Section 404, public, nonpublic, and not-for-profit organizations are required to follow many laws and regulations. Some relate to accounting only indirectly, such as environmental protection and civil rights laws. Others are closely related to accounting, such as income tax regulations and anti-fraud regulations such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 and certain provisions of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act. 10-2 Management designs systems of internal control to accomplish three categories of objectives: financial reporting, operations, and compliance with laws and regulations. The auditor’s focus in both the audit of financial statements and the audit of internal controls is on those controls related to the reliability of financial reporting plus those controls related to operations and to compliance with laws and regulations objectives that could materially affect financial reporting. 10-3 Section 404(a) requires management of all public companies to issue an internal control report that includes the following: 10-1 10-3 (continued)   A statement that management is responsible for establishing and maintaining an adequate internal control......
