         Audit Process              
Consider the auditor’s task from a logical perspective. The end product of a financial statement auditor’s work is an audit report indicating an opinion whether or not the client’s financial statements are free of material misstatement. After accepting a client what should an auditor do to obtain the necessary (and appropriate and sufficient) evidence to form and support that opinion? The auditor must first obtain a thorough understanding of the entity and its environment, including the entity’s internal control.
The auditor must understand the risks the client faces, how it is dealing with those risks, and what remaining risks are most likely to result in a material misstatement in the financial statements. Armed with this  understanding, the auditor develops an audit strategy and an audit plan that will produce evidence helpful in forming and supporting an opinion on the financial statements.  Read Details
