What Is An Audit?

An audit is a systematic and independent examination of books, accounts, statutory records, documents and vouchers of an organization to verify the financial statements and non-financial disclosures. An audit can apply to an entire organization or might be specific to a function, process, or production step, and might include an on-site verification, such as inspection or examination.

Types of audits include internal, external, forensic, public, tax, and information systems. Internal auditors typically examine issues related to company business practices and risks and are conducted throughout the year; external auditors typically perform a single annual audit, and should be independent of the entity being audited.

What Are The Responsibilities Of An Auditor?

The auditor helps an organization ensure that its:
  • Financial records are accurate
  • Financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether caused by error or fraud
  • Assess financial operations and work to help ensure that organizations run efficiently
  • Workers are complying with relevant laws and statutes
  • Taxes are paid properly and on time
An auditor also can evaluate the organization's internal control and make recommendations on how to improve.
