Description: xxxiv, pages ; 28 cm. Management’s responsibilities in an audit. The words, “The financial statements are the responsibility of management,” appear prominently in an auditor’s communications, including the audit report. Management’s responsibility is the underlying foundation on which audits are conducted.

When an internal audit function exists, the committee will review and approve the audit plan, review staffing and organization of the function, and meet with internal auditors and management on a periodic basis to discuss matters of concern that may arise.

Audit committees must have authority over their own budgets and over external auditors. Responsibility for corporate governance is spread among several organizational entities. The cornerstones of effective governance are the board of directors, executive management, the internal auditors, and the external auditors.

No single committee of the board is more focused on or better in tune with gover-nance than the audit committee. The Commission on Audit (COA) held a series of webinars across its various regional offices to discuss the Commission’s role in the Philippine Government’s response to COVID in the emergency and post-emergency phases.

Commissioner Roland C. Pondoc was the sole resource speaker on all webinars hosted by the different COA regional offices. A limited role for the public in defining auditor’s roles and responsibilities was also implied by the Treadway Commission report which recommended amending the auditor’s opinion to indicate that auditors could provide reasonable but not absolute assurance that financial statements were free of fraud [New York Times, J ] This.

Internal auditors are employees of the company that they are auditing. Large companies often have at least one auditor on their accounting staff. The duties of these internal auditors don't differ much from those of external auditors, but dealing with a single company's books allows them to become very efficient at checking its records and figures.

Author: Henry R Jaenicke. The fact that the company has competent management, including a financial director, and an external auditor does not relieve the audit committee of its responsibilities.

All role-players in the corporate governance process have to play their part but, while the audit committee can rely on other governance elements, it is the highest governing.

express an overall opinion, the auditor should state the reasons therefor in the auditor's report. In all cases where an auditor's name is associated with financial statements, the auditor should clearly indicate the character of the auditor's work, if any, and the degree of responsibility the auditor is taking, in the auditor's report.

The audit expectation gap is a phenomenon that exists for many years. In particular, the audited financial statements beneficiaries’ expectations exceed what auditors can reasonably be expected.

However, auditors benefit from limited liability which reduces their individual responsibility and could hinder the plaintiff’s case when taking the issue to court. In addition, the confidence put in auditors has diminished and made outsiders suspicious of the activities carried out by big firms.

Also, we adopted new disclosure rules regarding audit committees and auditor reviews of interim financial information in response to recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Committee.

Those rules require that companies include in their proxy statements reports of their audit committees that state whether, among other things, the audit. The AOB stressed that auditors and Audit Committees need to pay particular attention to certain areas of focus, especially when discharging their responsibilities in response to the pandemic, in order to consistently uphold audit quality.

These areas include going concern, asset impairment, subsequent events and group audits. - The Commission on Audit shall have the power, authority, and duty to examine, audit and settle all accounts pertaining to the revenues and receipts of, and expenditures or uses of funds and property, owned or held in trust by, or pertaining to the Government, or any of its subdivisions, agencies, or instrumentalities, including government.
