An audit simply means to evaluate and comment on the items that have been confirmed. Financial auditing entails going over the books of accounts and other pertinent information. This will provide the auditor with the information he needs to determine whether the accounts have been properly maintained and whether the appropriate statutory, accounting for financial reporting and auditing requirements have been met.
A financial statement audit is an independent examination of the organization’s financial statements. The primary goal of a financial statement audit is to provide independent or third-party assurance that management has presented a “true and fair” assessment of a company’s financial performance in its financial statements. The auditor’s report attesting to the fairness of the financial statements and related disclosures is the result of this examination. When the financial statements are distributed to the intended receivers or stakeholders, the auditor’s report must be included.
