The different levels of assurances from the auditor’s point of view

An audit of a Top External Audit firm in Bahrain provides a high level of assurance. But a review engagement gives a reasonably lesser degree of assurance than an audit. As in a review, the auditor does not carry out all those procedures that are carried out in an audit. Publicly held entities must have their quarterly financial statements reviewed, in addition to the annual audit.Sometimes the requirement is only to report on individual items of financial data or on a set of financial statements to report on the factual findings, say to certify only the turnover of the company.The level of assurance in such agreed-upon procedures is again lower than in a review engagement. In the case of a compilation engagement, the auditor is called upon to prepare the financial statements – where his expertise in collecting, classifying and summarizing the financial information is only demanded and not designed to give any assurance on the financial statements.

What is the difference between Internal Audit and an External Audit?

There are two different types of Audits available to a business, namely Internal Audit and External Audit. These audits provide similar end results but are different from each other.

  • An External Audit is usually performed by an individual or a team of individual who is not related to the organization, whereas the internal Audit is conducted by an individual or team of people who are under the payroll of the organization.
  • An External Audit is usually performed to examine if the information revealed by the management is correct and can be trusted, whereas an internal audit is conducted by the management to understand the business activities and if anything can be made better.
  • An external audit can be conducted after a business quarter or a financial year is over or when there is a huge change in the organization, either financial or structural. An internal audit can be conducted as per the need and requirement of the business as it is conducted by a specific department of the organization.

  • Follow-up and Action Taken Report

    As it will be a continuous process, the scope does not end with the submission of reports. The follow-up action taken report (ATR) will be presented to the management on the status of observations and its closure status. Any long-pending observations critical to the business will be bought to the notice of the management to set a further course of actions.
    Independent review and appraisal of the organization’s financial and relevant operational activities will be better when the auditor is not part of the organization and is independent.
