Audit & Assurances


P.N.Muralidharan, Founder

This audit is essential to regulate whether business entity is abiding by the rules and regulations. It consists of supervising as to whether the personnel are abiding by the rules prescribed by the organisation. This includes inspecting legal documents related to banks and other lenders in agreement with central bank and stock exchange directives or government directives. Essentially, the outcome of such audits is communicated to particular individuals and the higher authority who sought clarity in the matter at hand.

Banks (both public and governed under Banking Regulation Act), asset management firms, finance institutes and insurance organisations utilise the internal audit approach. Concurrent Audit is much the same as Internal Audit and is carried out at regular intervals. This is done to supervise the effectiveness in standard operations with statutory proclamations from time to time. Concurrent Audit usually acts as an appendage to the internal audit team, and assists it on a regular basis with factual findings.

Tax Audit is required u/s 44AB of the income tax act, 1961.Thsi section mandates that every person whose business turnover exceeds limit specified by ITD from time to time have their accounts audited by an independent chartered accountant. The Tax audit report is to be obtained within statutory due date after the end of previous fiscal year. Non compliance attracts interest & penalty.

Internal audit is conducted by the own management of the company. We can say internal audit is a preparation for other independent audits. But the main intention of internal audit is to check the status of finance and operational efficiency of the company. This audit can be conducted by an independent party or by a company’s own staff. The report of internal audit is to be submitted to management. This kind of audit is specifically designed to enhance a firms functioning. It assists an institution in achieving its goals by ushering a methodical system to inspect and better the efficiency of risk evaluation and management. It has a widened scope within an organisation and may incorporate spheres like effective functioning, accuracy of financial collaterals, inspecting and discouraging frauds, protecting assets, and productive usage of the company resources that is in agreement with the organisation's rules.

Statutory audits are conducted in order to report the state of a company’s finance and accounts to the government. The audit report of statutory audit is made in the form prescribed by the government agency. This audit is to be calculated by a qualified and independent auditor. The monetary statements of a firm for a given period of time are to be looked after by the external auditor. The role of the statutory auditor here is to report all the current affairs of the company. It is a crucial tool for stakeholders to gauge the substantiality of the firm with regard to their proceedings.

Financial institutions are expanding their credit to entities based on their stocks or book debts. This could either be done on the basis of overdraft, cash credit limit, etc. It then becomes crucial to have checks at regular intervals to establish the status of current assets, accurate attestation for statutory compliances and debt turnover scrutiny.

This kind of audit helps companies gain a non-discriminatory evaluation of the company’s program performance. We employ personalised and constructive review methods in order to gain an understanding of how to achieve outstanding performance results. Other advantages include a clear insight into the areas that require improvement and enhancing overall performance of the organisation.

This audit covers a periodic analysis of the administrative functions. It is done to ensure effectiveness of control, protection of asset of the business, and productive use of resources in agreement with the business procedures and policies.

A financial statement audit is conducted to determine whether the overall financial statements are stated in accordance with specified criteria such as Indian Accounting Standard (IAS) or GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles - is a collection of commonly-followed accounting rules and standards for financial reporting), International Financial Reporting Standards ( IFRS - is a set of accounting standards developed by an independent, not-for-profit organization called the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). It becomes difficult for auditors to only concentrate on accounting affairs when the complexity in a business rises. We apply a holistic technique which involves a deep knowledge of the business that gradually inflate audit efficacy. We employ a risk based audit technique that is in complete agreement with the ISAs. Our technique is based on cycles and includes:

Follow up Audits: This is primarily regulated after the internal or external report has been submitted which is roughly after a period of 6 months. They are essentially created to plan corrective measures to be undertaken on the audit reports. The outcome of this may then be conveyed to the external auditors.

Integrated Audit: This involves an amalgamation of Application Controls Review, Department Review and Operational Unit. This kind of examination provides an in-depth understanding of a functional operation within an institution.

Investigative audit: This audit is conducted when suspicious actions are observed on the behalf of a company, a person or at times of a loss in business. Investigative Audit surpasses standard procedures. This endeavour necessitates analytical methods, interrogating ability and monetary data reconstruction.

Management Audit: Major decisions regarding crucial business undertakings are taken by the highest authorities in the organisation. However, after a period of time, it is necessary to conduct an evaluation of their proficiency by an independent agency. This maintains optimum independence in analysing the concerned individuals’ skills and capabilities in managing his area of operations. These audits require and mandate that a person has great inert-personal skills and maturity level.

Operational Audit: An Operational Audit is conducted to examine the effectiveness of any organisation. At the end of such an audit, recommendations are suggested for enhancing business productivity. It can be conducted in various spheres. This can range from inspecting the proficiency of payroll transactions to the more complicated procedure of courier service. We can help you increase your functional proficiency with our operational audits designed to suit your specific needs.

Payroll Audit: Salaries & Wages are always major overheads in an organisation and requires for analytical examinations. Different frameworks are taken into consideration while regulating a Payroll Audit; such as authentication details of employees, updated information about the personnel, time worked and salary scale of employees, etc. Additionally, an introspection of the amount to be reimbursed is also a major criterion that falls under payroll audit.

System Audit: System means collection or unification of activities, instruments, material, and people to achieve a specific goal. For e.g. Information system is collection of hardware and software acting together to serve a common purpose of providing information. When we talk about a system audit we most specifically refer to management system audit. A system audit is an audit of system/subsystem against system requirement. The main purpose of this audit is to check whether the system/subsystem is working according to the prescribed requirement or not.
