Whether it is a balance sheet of a company, a cinema hall, or of a school; auditing evaluates all! This comprehensive book, now in its second edition, is a compendium of a textbook; a handbook of Auditing Standards; a question bank, and a compilation of model answers.
This text is organized in four parts. Part 1 (Principles) enunciates the standards and the concepts, which form the bases of auditing. Part 2(Process) provides a stepwise description of the auditing process, adopted by the auditors while performing audit engagements. Part 3 (Performance) deals with the auditing engagement and shows how the verification of financial elements such as receipts, payments, purchases, sales, assets and liabilities is conducted. Part 4 (Practice) demonstrates the practical aspects of audits of specific entities such as private limited companies, charitable trusts, hospitals and so on.
