AUDIT & ASSURANCE
As per the requirements of new Companies Act No. 07 of 2007, a Company could be incorporated as a ‘limited company’ or an ‘unlimited company’ or as a ‘company limited by guarantee’. Accordingly a registered auditor qualify to carry an audit in these companies and he should be a member of Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka.
An audit is the examination of the financial report of an organisation – as presented in the annual report – by someone independent of that organisation. The financial report includes a balance sheet, a statement of comprehensive income, a statement of changes in equity, a cash flow statement, and notes comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.
The purpose of an audit is to form a view on whether the information presented in the financial report, taken as a whole, reflects the financial position of the organisation on the given date. When examining the financial report, auditors must follow auditing standards which are set by Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka. Accordingly we set up our audit methodology as follows.
