  • 5. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 INTRODUCTION Industrial has revolution led to the emergence of large scale business organizations. These organization require big investments and the risk involved is very high. Limited resources and unlimited liability of partners are two important limitations of partnerships of partnerships in undertaking big business. Joint Stock Company form of business organization has become extremely popular as it provides a solution to(2) overcome the limitations of partnership business. The Multinational companies like Coca-Cola and, General Motors have their investors and customers spread throughout the world. The giant Indian Companies may include the names like Reliance, Talco Bajaj Auto, Infosys Technologies, Hindustan Lever Ltd., Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd., and Larsen and Tubro etc. Meaning of Company Section 3 (1) (i) of the Companies Act, 1956 defines a company as “a company formed and registered under this Act or an existing company”. Section 3(1) (ii) Of the act states that “an existing company means a company formed and registered under any of the previous companies laws”. This definition does not reveal the distinctive characteristics of a company . According to Chief Justice Marshall of USA, “A company is a person, artificial, invisible, intangible, and existing only in the contemplation of the law. Being a mere creature of law, it possesses only those properties which the character of its creation of its creation confers upon it either expressly or as incidental to its very existence”. Another comprehensive and clear definition of a company is given by Lord Justice Lindley, “A company is meant an association of many persons who contribute money or money’s worth to a common stock and employs it in some trade or business, and who share the profit and loss (as the case may be) arising there from. The proportion of capital to which each member is entitled is his share. Shares are always transferable although the right to transfer them is often more or less restricted”.
  • 6. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 FEATURES OF A COMPANY The main characteristics of a company are: 1. Incorporated association. A company is created when it is registered under the Companies Act. It comes into being from the date mentioned in the certificate of incorporation. It may be noted in this connection that Section 11 provides that an association of more than ten persons carrying on business in banking or an association or more than twenty persons carrying on any other type of business must be registered under the Companies Act and is deemed to be an illegal association, if it is not so registered. For forming a public company at least seven persons and for a private company at least two persons are persons are required. These persons will subscribe their names to the Memorandum of association and also comply with other legal requirements of the Act in respect of registration to form and incorporate a company, with or without limited liability [Sec 12 (1)]. 2. Artificial legal person. A company is an artificial person. Negatively speaking, it is not a natural person. It exists in the eyes of the law and cannot act on its own. It has to act through a board of directors elected by shareholders. It was rightly pointed out in Bates V Standard Land Co. that : “The board of directors are the brains and the only brains of the company, which is the body and the company can and does act only through them”. But for many purposes, a company is a legal person like a natural person. It has the right to acquire and dispose of the property, to enter into contract with third parties in its own name, and can sue and be sued in its own name. However, it is not a citizen as it cannot enjoy the rights under the Constitution of India or Citizenship Act. In State Trading Corporation of India v C.T.O (1963 SCJ 705), it was held that neither the provisions of the Constitution nor the Citizenship
  • 7. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Act apply to it. It should be noted that though a company does not possess fundamental rights, yet it is person in the eyes of law. It can enter into contracts with its Directors, its members, and outsiders. 3. Separate Legal Entity : A company has a legal distinct entity and is independent of its members. The creditors of the company can recover their money only from the company and the property of the company. They cannot sue individual members. Similarly, the company is not in any way liable for the individual debts of its members. The property of the company is to be used for the benefit of the company and nor for (5) the personal benefit of the shareholders. On the same grounds, a member cannot claim any ownership rights in the assets of the company either individually or jointly during the existence of the company or in its winding up. At the same time the members of the company can enter into contracts with the company in the same manner as any other individual can. Separate legal entity of the company is also recognized by the Income Tax Act. Where a company is required to pay Income-tax on its profits and when these profits are distributed to shareholders in the form of dividend, the 4. Perpetual Existence. A company is a stable form of business organization. Its life does not depend upon the death, insolvency or retirement of any or all shareholder (s) or director (s). Law creates it and law alone can dissolve it. Members may come and go but the company can go on forever. “During the war all the member of one private company, while in general meeting, were killed by a bomb. But the company survived; not even a hydrogen bomb could have destroyed i”. The company may be compared with a flowing river where the water keeps on changing continuously; still the identity of the river remains the same. Thus, a company has a perpetual existence, irrespective of changes in its membership.
  • 8. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 5. Common Seal. As was pointed out earlier, a company being an artificial person has no body similar to natural person and as such it cannot sign documents for itself. It acts through natural person who are called its directors. But having a legal personality, it can be bound by only those documents which bear its signature. Therefore, the law has provided for the use of common seal, with the name of the company engraved on it, as a substitute for its signature. Any document bearing the common seal of the company will be legally binding on the company. A company may have its own regulations in its Articles of Association for the manner of affixing the common seal to a document. If the Articles are silent, the provisions of Table-A (the model set of articles appended to the Companies Act) will apply. As per regulation 84 of Table-A the seal of the company shall not be affixed to any instrument except by the authority of a resolution of the Board or a Committee of the Board authorized by it in that behalf, and except in the presence of at least two directors and of the secretary or such other person as the Board may appoint for the purpose, and those two directors and the secretary or other person aforesaid shall sign every instrument to which the seal of the company is so affixed in their presence. 6. Limited Liability : A company may be company limited by shares or a company limited by guarantee. In company limited by shares, the liability of members is limited to the unpaid value of the shares. For example, if the face value of a share in a company is Rs. 10 and a member has already paid Rs. 7 per share, he can be called upon to pay not more than Rs. 3 per share during the lifetime of the company. In a company limited by guarantee the liability of members is limited to such amount as the member may undertake to contribute to the assets of the company in the event of its being wound up.
  • 9. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 7. Transferable Shares. In a public company, the shares are freely transferable. The right to transfer shares is a statutory right and it cannot be taken away by a provision in the articles. However, the articles shall prescribe the manner in which such transfer of shares will be made and it may also contain bona fide and reasonable restrictions on the right of members to transfer their shares. But absolute restrictions on the rights of members to transfer their shares shall be ultra vires. However, in the case of a private company, the articles shall restrict the right of member to transfer their shares in companies with its statutory definition. 8. Separate Property : As a company is a legal person distinct from its members, it is capable of owning, enjoying and disposing of property in its own name. Although its capital and assets are contributed by its shareholders, they are not the private and joint owners of its property. The company is the real person in which all its property is vested and by which it is controlled, managed and disposed of. Accounting records and financial statement maintained by the company Good record keeping is an important part of monitoring business performance. It also makes it easier for small business owners to meet their taxation obligations. Appropriate and up-to-date financial records provide the necessary information for managing the business efficiently and making sound business decisions. To help you maintain your daily financial records, you should consider:  Setting up either a manual or electronic record keeping system that suits your needs,  Recording your business transactions accurately and promptly, How to keep daily financial records  Preparing a summary account (including income and expenditure) at the end of each month.
  • 10. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Maintaining good financial records starts with a good system and well-organized business records. The system can be a simple one and does not need to be complicated. Disclosure of Accounting Policies  To ensure proper understanding of financial statements, it is necessary that all significant accounting policies adopted in the preparation and presentation of financial statements should be disclosed.  Such disclosure should formpart of the financial statements.  It would be helpful to the reader of financial statements if they are all disclosed as such in one place instead of being scattered over several statements, schedules and notes.  Examples of matters in respect of which disclosure of accounting policies adopted will be required are contained in paragraph 14. This list of examples is not, however, intended to be exhaustive.  Any change in an accounting policy which has a material effect should be disclosed. The amount by which any item in the financial statements is affected by such change should also be disclosed to the extent ascertainable. Where such amount is not ascertainable, wholly or in part, the fact should be indicated. If a change is made in the accounting policies which has no material effect on the financial statements for the current period but which is reasonably expected to have a material effect in later periods, the fact of such change should be appropriately disclosed in the period in which the change is adopted.  Disclosure of accounting policies or of changes therein cannot remedy a wrong or inappropriate treatment of the item in the accounts.
  • 11. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Main Principles  All significant accounting policies adopted in the preparation and presentation of financial statements should be disclosed.  The disclosure of the significant accounting policies as such should form part of the financial statements and the significant accounting policies should normally be disclosed in one place.  Any change in the accounting policies which has a material effecting the current period or which is reasonably expected to have a material effect in later periods should be disclosed. In the case of a change in accounting policies which has a material effect in the current period, the amount by which any item in the financial statements is affected by such change should also be disclosed to the extent ascertainable. Where such amount is not ascertainable, wholly or in part, the fact should be indicated.  If the fundamental accounting assumptions, viz. Going Concern, Consistency and Accrual are followed in financial statements, specific disclosure is not required. If a fundamental accounting assumption is not followed, the fact should be disclosed.
  • 12. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 (Meaning and define of audit report and audit certificate) Audit Report An auditor, under Section 227 (2) of the Companies Act, 1956, is required to make a report to the shareholders of the company whether the books of accounts examined by him exhibit ‘true and fair’ view of the state of affairs of the business. The auditor submits his report to his client giving clear and concise information of the result of audit performed by him. The fact or information contained in the auditor's report is not available from any other source. The statutory auditor of a company has to express his professional opinion about the truth and fairness of the state of affairs of the company as shown by the Balance Sheet and of the profit or loss as shown by the Profit and Loss Account in addition to other information in his report. Audit Certificate - Definition The general purpose of an audit certificate is to give to the Commission reasonable assurance that eligible costs (and, if relevant, the receipts) charged under the project are calculated and claimed by the contractors in accordance with the relevant legal and financial provisions of the FP6 legal texts, including contractual provisions. When an auditor certifies a financial statement, it implies that the contents of the statement are reliable as the auditor has vouched for the exactness of the data. The term ‘certificate’ is, therefore, used to mean confirmation of the truth and correctness of something after a verification of certain exact facts. An auditor may therefore certify the circulating figures of a newspaper or the value of imports and exports of a company. The term ‘certificate’ should not be confused with the term ‘report'. While a certificate affirms the truth and correctness of a fact, figure or a statement, a report is generally a statement of facts or an expression of opinion regarding the truth and fairness of the facts, figures and statements.
  • 13. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Difference between Audit Report & Audit Certificate 1. A report means simply an expression of opinions Whereas a Certificate means that the person issuing or signing the certificate vouchsafes the truth of the statement made by him 2. The Auditor Report is based on facts, estimates and assumptions whereas Auditor's Certificate is based on actual facts 3. Auditor Report is not a guarantee of the absolute correctness & accuracy of the books of accounts. But the auditor certificate serves as a guarantee of the absolute correctness & accuracy of the books of accounts 4. If the Auditor Report is later on found to be wrong, he cannot be held responsible since he has given merely his opinion on the state of affairs of the company. But if the duly signed certificate is found as wrong, he will be held responsible. Type of Audit Report An audit report is an appraisal of a small business’s complete financial status. Completed by an independent accounting professional, this document covers a company’s assets and liabilities, and presents the auditor’s educated assessment of the firm’s financial position and future. Audit reports are required by law if a company is publicly traded or in an industry regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Companies seeking funding, as well as those looking to improve internal controls, also find this information valuable. There are four types of audit reports. 1. Unqualified Opinion Often called a clean opinion, an unqualified opinion is an audit report that is issued when an auditor determines that each of the financial records provided by the small business is free of any misrepresentations. In addition, an unqualified opinion indicates that the financial records have been maintained in accordance with the standards known as Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). This is the best type of report a business can receive.
  • 14. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Typically, an unqualified report consists of a title that includes the word “independent.” This is done to illustrate that it was prepared by an unbiased third party. The title is followed by the main body. Made up of three paragraphs, the main body highlights the responsibilities of the auditor, the purpose of the audit and the auditor’s findings. The auditor signs and dates the document, including his address. 2. Qualified Opinion In situations when a company’s financial records have not been maintained in accordance with GAAP but no misrepresentations are identified, an auditor will issue a qualified opinion. The writing of a qualified opinion is extremely similar to that of an unqualified opinion. A qualified opinion, however, will include an additional paragraph that highlights the reason why the audit report is not unqualified. 3. Adverse Opinion The worst type of financial report that can be issued to a business is an adverse opinion. This indicates that the firm’s financial records do not conform to GAAP. In addition, the financial records provided by the business have been grossly misrepresented. Although this may occur by error, it is often an indication of fraud. When this type of report is issued, a company must correct its financial statement and have it re-audited, as investors, lenders and other requesting parties will generally not accept it. 4. Disclaimer of Opinion On some occasions, an auditor is unable to complete an accurate audit report. This may occur for a variety of reasons, such as an absence of appropriate financial records. When this happens, the auditor issues a disclaimer of opinion, stating that an opinion of the firm’s financial status could not be determined.
  • 15. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 ESSENTIALS OF GOOD AUDIT REPORT The essentials of good audit report are as follows: 1. Title An auditor report must have appropriate title, such as “Auditor’s Report”. It is helpful for the reader to identify the auditor’s report. It is easy to distinguish it from other reports. The management can issue any report about the business performance. The title o the report is essential. 2. Addressee The addressee may be shareholder or board of director of a company. The auditor can audit financial statements of any business unit as per agreement. The report should be appropriately addressed as required by engagement letter and legal requirements. The report is usually addresses to the shareholders or the board of directors. 3. Identification The audit report should identify the financial statement that have audited. The financial statement may include trading profit and loss accounts, balance sheet and statement of changes in financial position and sources and application of frauds statement. The report should include the name of the entity. Moreover the data and period covered by the financial statement are also stated in it. 4. Reference to Auditing Standards The audit report should indicate the auditing standard or practice followed in conducting the audit. The international auditing guidelines need assurance that the audit has been conducted as per set standards.
  • 16. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 5. Opinion The auditor’s report should clearly state the auditor’s opinion on the presentation in the financial statement of the entity’s financial position and the result of its operations. The statement give a true and fair view is an auditor’s opinion. This opinion is usually based on national standard or international accounting standards. 6. Signature The audit report should be signed in the name of the audit firm, the personal name of the auditor or both as appropriate. 7. Auditor’s Address The address of auditor is stated in the audit report. The name of city is stated in the report for information of the readers. 8. Date of Report The report should be dated. It informs the reader that the auditor considered the effect on the financial statements and in his report of events or transactions about which he become aware the occurred up to that date. Qualified audit reports It is necessary to firstly identify the circumstances which can give rise to a qualification. These are as follows: Uncertainty arising from either a limitation upon the scope of the auditors work or an inability to obtain any evidence regarding doubts which exist in relation to an unresolved matter. Disagreements arising from factual discrepancies, unsuitable accounting policies, inadequate or misleading disclosures given in the financial statements or failure to comply with an accounting standard or legislation. Some of these types of disagreement should be resolved fairly easily with the client so that a qualification can be avoided, for
  • 17. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 example a factual disagreement should lead to the financial statements being amended to reflect the correct view. Other types of disagreement which are perhaps more subjective will be much more difficult to resolve such as those relating to the suitability of an accounting policy. Secondly, it is necessary to decide upon the effect of the circumstances discussed above. These are classified as:  Those having a material but not fundamental effect upon the financial statements  those having a fundamental effect upon the financial statements. Fundamental means that the matter is such as to seriously distort or undermine the view which is given by the financial statements to the extent that they could mislead user groups. An except for qualification will be given when the matter is a material but not fundamental uncertainty or disagreement. An example of an uncertainty could be the destruction of a part of the clients accounting records leading to a limitation of scope being imposed upon the auditors work because audit evidence is then unavailable. An example of a disagreement under this heading could be a failure by a client to apply a reasonable depreciation policy to a particular class of fixed assets, however in both of these examples the effect is not pervasive to the view which the financial statements give as a whole.

  • 23. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Generally Accepted Auditing Standards The generally accepted auditing standards (GAAS) are the standards you use for auditing private companies. GAAS come in three categories: general standards, standards of fieldwork, and standards of reporting. Keep in mind that the GAAS are the minimum standards you use for auditing private companies. Additionally, the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) has adopted these standards for public (traded on the open market) companies. Each audit engagement you work on may require you to perform audit work beyond what’s specified in the GAAS in order to appropriately issue an opinion that a set of financial statements is fairly presented. You need to use professional judgment and exercise due care in following all standards. General standards: The first three GAAS are general standards that address your qualifications to be an auditor and the minimum standards for your work product:  As an auditor, you must have both adequate training and proficiency.  You are independent in both fact and appearance.  You exercise due professional care in performing your auditing tasks. Standards of fieldwork: The next three GAAS govern how you actually do your job:  Your work is adequately planned, and all assistants are properly supervised.  You gain an understanding of the client and its environment, including internal controls, to assess the risk of material misstatement in the financial statements and to plan your audit.  The evidence you gather during the audit is appropriate and sufficient to evaluate management’s assertions on the financial statements.
  • 24. ADVANCE AUDITING 2013-2014 Standards of reporting: The last four GAAS concern information you must consider prior to issuing your audit report:  You have to state whether the financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).  Just as important is to report whether GAAP are consistently applied for all financial accounting. Should this not be the case, you have to report any departures.  You also have to make sure that disclosures — any additional information needed to explain the numbers on the financial statements — are provided. Lastly, you have to include your opinion as to whether the financial statements present fairly in all material respects the financial position of the company under audit.
