The most important aspect of evaluating the client's method of obtaining a reliable cutoff is to:
For cash receipts, the occurrence transaction-related audit objective affects which of the following balance-related audit objective?
As the amount of misstatements expected in the population approaches tolerable misstatement, the planned sample size will:
The client's trial balance has a balance of $410,000 for merchandise inventory. As the auditor you are willing to accept a balance that is within $20,000 of either side of the recorded balance. You compute a 95% confidence interval of $395,000 to $425,000. You could therefore:
