What is a business audit?
A business audit is a documented evaluation of whether or not a company’s financial statements are materially correct along with the standards, evidence, and assumptions used to conduct the audit.
The results are reported in a written audit opinion, and the language in the opinion defines an audit. An auditor reports on several topics:
- Financial statements: An auditor reports whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. In this context, the word “material” means an error or missing information that is large enough to impact the reader’s opinion of the financial statements. An audit is designed to identify financial statement errors.
- Regulatory requirements: The financial statements must be prepared based on a set of accounting rules. The audit opinion states that the financial statements were prepared in accordance with a specific set of rules. In Sultanate of Oman, Muscat auditing is conducted under IFRS or International Financial Reporting Standards.
- Internal controls: Finally, most audits require an auditor to assess the effectiveness of internal controls. These controls are put in place so that the business can produce accurate financial statements and prevent assets from theft. If there are weaknesses in any internal controls, the auditor must disclose the weaknesses.
