Work flow within Audit Assistant


Within Audit Assistant the auditing and assurance standards have been fitted into a logical sequential flow following best auditing practice.

This enables the user to begin work in the A section, completing planning at the E section, then working through the F to V sections completing evidential testing according to the risks and other factors identified in planning, then in the W to Z sections the work is completed with a summary of the work done and results obtained and production of appropriate reports as follows:

  • Each job is driven from the Control Page - a summary of the whole audit with branches to subsections
  • Other key pages are Trial Balance, Materiality, Risk Assessment and Planning, Adjustments, Management Report and Audit Summary 
  • Evidence is added by way of attachments into the file
  • Questionnaires and checklists are shared with client to gather data and evidence
  • Emphasis is on risk identification at the planning stage and creation of audit plan around these identified risks
  • Each risk identified must then be addressed in terms of level of risk and appropriate audit response - carried through to selected work papers
  • Further risks identified during fieldwork may require planning document to be updated
  • Management letter points, errors, key issues, follow ups, deadlines etc. are identified during the process
  • At conclusion job is rolled over which adds all pages and attached files into one PDF document
