Accurate and reliable audits—whether of financial statements, employee benefit plans, internal controls, or for forensic accounting—are a central part of business integrity. They affect the availability of capital, the quality of internal decision making, as well as the confidence of business partners, investors, and donors.
Audit standards require auditors to obtain a deeper understanding of the audited entity, its environment, and internal controls. Auditors must also perform a rigorous assessment of the risks of material misstatement on financial statements. What’s more, they’re expected to improve linkage between the assessed risks and the nature, timing, and extent of the audit procedures performed. Accordingly, businesses seeking an auditor must ensure the firm is well versed in the auditing standards.
