Auditing is a valuable skill in accounting and business, as the odds are very high that you or your organization will be subject to a compliance, federal, IRS, internal, government, or revenue audit at one point in your career. Accountants are required to make professional judgments on both the financial accounting issues and internal accounting forecasts within their organization. The auditor must provide fair, unbiased, materially correct information for investors, employers, employees, and independent stakeholders. This course will help you navigate the relevant processes to provide that unbiased, accurate information.
For Milestone Two, you will submit a draft of risk factors as identified for all of the major business transactions conducted by your chosen company. Analyze the income statement, balance sheet, and cash and revenue for any potential risk factors and compliance issues with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) or International Financial Recording Standards (IFRS). Based on your analysis of risk, devise a statistical and judgmental sampling program for the audit universe. Recommend the most preferable audit testing procedure based on the audit universe items sampled.
Prompt: Analyze potential risk factors in all the major business transactions using the information you have gathered in previous milestones
