Financial Statement Audit
A financial statement audit is an independent appraisal of the financial statements prepared by the organization. The cardinal objective of a financial statement audit is to provide an independent assurance that the management has, in its financial statements, presented a “true and fair” view of a Company’s financial performance. The purpose of a financial statement audit is to add credibility to the reported financial position and performance of a business. Similarly, lenders typically require an audit of the financial statements of any entity to which they lend funds. Suppliers may also require audited financial statements before they will be willing to extend trade credit facility. (though usually only when the amount of requested credit is substantial)
Due diligence audit
Due diligence is an investigation or examination of a business or person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care. The theory behind due diligence holds that performing this type of investigation contributes significantly to informed decision making by enhancing the amount and quality of information available to decision makers and by ensuring that this information is systematically used to deliberate in a reflexive manner on the decision at hand and all its costs, benefits, and risks.
Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity intended to add value and develop an organizations operation. It helps an organization achieve its objectives by bringing a methodical, meticulous and disciplined approach to assess and enhance the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. Internal auditors typically issue reports at the end of each audit that summarize their findings, recommendations, and any responses or action plans from management. The internal auditors provide assurance that as far as possible risks are significantly reduced and that the organization’s corporate governance is forceful and capable. In addition internal auditors make recommendations for and, when there is room for improvement, internal auditors make recommendations for augmenting processes, policies, and procedures.”
Risk management is the identification and prioritization of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to reduce, check and control the likelihood and impact of adverse events or to maximize the awareness of opportunities. Risk management’s objective is to guarantee that indecision and hesitation does not repel the effort or attempt from the business goals. Strategies to manage threats (uncertainties with negative consequences) typically include avoiding the threat, reducing the negative effect or probability of the threat and even retaining some of the potential or actual consequences of a particular threat.
Investigation audit consists of the detection, tracing, quantification and prevention of fraud, money laundering and terror finance. Investigative Auditing involves the examination of accounts and the use of accounting procedures to discover financial irregularities and to follow the movement of funds and assets in organizations.
Supply Chain Audit
Supply Chain Management (SCM) is the management of the flow of goods and services. It includes the movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventory, and finished goods from point of origin to point of consumption.
Management of material and information flow in a supply chain to provide the highest degree of customer satisfaction at the lowest possible cost.
