About This CourseBeginner

Audit-Financial Accounting will discuss, in detail, the auditing process of financial statements starting from what an audit is, as well as what the terms attest engagement and assurances services mean.

We will discuss the audit environment, the general format of a public accounting firm, and the general format of an audit team that would conduct the procedures related to an audit. The course will also discuss regulations and regulatory institutions related to the audit process.

Students will learn the different formats of audit evidence and how to document audit evidence so that it can be used as evidence to support the conclusion and opinion of the auditor.

We will examine the internal controls of the organization. Internal controls are policies set up by management to achieve the objectives of the organization. As auditors, we are primarily concerned with internal controls that will lower the risk of financial statements being materially misstated. If we can rely on internal controls as an auditor, we may be able to do more testing of the controls and less substantive testing, and this can be more efficient.

Students will then learn how to put together a standard audit report. The standard audit report is called an unqualified report. It is beneficial to actually memorize or have a good idea of the format of the standard unqualified report.
