After the review of the half-year financial report, the engagement partner in charge of the assurance engagement has identified potential financial fraud and misstatements presented in the accounting records. Under this circumstance, the partner decided to ask you to conduct further substantive tests prior to the year-end audit.

Answer the following questions:

  1. Comment and evaluate internal controls applied by the chosen company during the
    audit procedures to identify the operating effectiveness of controls. Give two
    examples of internal controls applied by the selected company.

    firm. Given an example for each technique identified.
  3. Determine relevant substantive testing for THREE (3) accounts selected from
    balance sheet accounts of the chosen company, such as cash, trade receivables,
    inventory, property, plant and equipment (PPE), intangible assets, goodwill,
    investment, loan, payables, provisions, leases, long-term liabilities, equity,
    revaluation surplus, deferred tax assets, deferred tax liabilities. You should identify
    the objectives, substantive tests of transactions and account balances for each
    account identified. Refer to relevant ASAs or other resources.

    This assessment is being able to obtain sufficient audit evidence and follow appropriate
    procedures, to evaluate the impact on audit opinions, reporting and application of the
    auditing standards. As such, a key requirement of this assessment is your ability to draw in
    relevant sections of certain auditing standards. The outcome of this assessment will be you
    presenting an appropriate audit opinion for the chosen company that is being audited.
    However, it is about more than simply quoting standards. It is about using the knowledge in
    those standards to apply them to your chosen company. That is, it is about applying your
    judgment! As such, every student’s assessment will differ according to the issues that apply
    to their chosen company.
