    2319 words, 10 pages

    Major differences in the financial reporting practices of companies in different countries lead to problems for those preparing, consolidating and interpreting published financial statements. These differences will be discussed in the first part of the essay. Attempts to harmonise financial statements on an international scale have been made by bodies such as the IASC, more recently, the IASB and the EU. The success of these, however, remains open to interpretation. A company’s annual accounts, wherever they may be produced, provide information as to the financial situation of a compan

    The Main Objective Of An Audit Of Public Limited Companies

    1486 words, 6 pages

    In today's business environment, there is a more strict supervision and scepticism of company's financial statements than ever before. This is according to government’s regulations which reports that all public limited companies are required by law to have their accounts audited annually by a professionally trained auditor . Due to the sloping down economy, which will most probably affect the company’s profitability, they are more likely to use fraud evidence to deceive the public as well as the law. So, by examining their financial books often, it minimizes the possibility of manipulation.

    This paper examines the use of manipulative practices by accountants and the impacts of their manipulation in an ethical context. In particular this paper discusses the major accounting scandals in recent years and the effects on the accounting industry. Users of financial statements typically assume that financial statements are presented fairly and thus rely on them to make economic decisions. This is not always the case as preparers of financial statements can be persuaded to distort or manipulate financial statements to tailor the overall message the financial statements present to suit

    Audit Quality

    10984 words, 44 pages

    Abstract The only observable outcome of the audit process is normally the issued audit report, which, at least in its standard form, does not contain much information about audit quality (Balsam et al. 2003). Auditor quality is multidimensional and inherently unobservable, and there is no single auditor characteristic that can be used as a proxy for it. In the absence of direct measures for quality, audit consumers must assess the quality by using quality surrogates, or the overall reputation of an auditor (e.g. Shapiro 1983, Riley 2001). The purpose of this dissertation is to enhance our und
