What is Internal Audit?

What is Audit?

 
Auditing is the evaluation of a person, institution, organization, system, process, project or product.


An audit is undertaken to ensure the validity and reliability of information, as well as to provide an assessment of the internal control of a system. The purpose of the audit is to express an opinion about the person, institution, system, etc., based on test results. Due to practical constraints, only reasonable evidence is provided in the audit that the statements are free of material errors. Therefore, statistical examples are frequently used in auditing. In a financial audit, a set of numerical statements are considered true when they do not contain quantitative or qualitative errors.


In its simplest form, auditors are people who, on accounting days, audit a company´s accounting records to determine whether they are accurate and consistent with the company´s purpose for existence.

 
It provides comfort (assurance) to itself by having an outside person control the accounting audits.



Auditors do not deal with every record in their accounts in accounting; They audit the records they have determined by making use of their experience, according to the internal structure of the company and its field of activity.


The audit is carried out by an authorized, independent and impartial person or persons called auditors or accountants, and these people issue an audit report according to the audit result.


Such systems must comply with the standards set by the governing bodies that regulate trade. These standards provide assurance to third parties or external users that the company´s financial position is ´correctly´ disclosed.

 

Generally Accepted Auditing Standards


The assurance of quality and reliability in auditing depends on the compliance of the audit activity with predetermined criteria.
