Introduction to the key concepts of auditing and the modern audit practice environment within the Australian professional and legal framework.
The unit's broad aim is to discuss the role of an auditor and the practice starting from the initial audit planning, the study of internal controls, substantive testing and evidence gathering to the final audit report. Students are introduced to the professional auditing standards, Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants and the audit process, including manual and computerised audit techniques and the audit procedures used by external company auditors to provide an opinion on the truth and fairness of financial reports.
The objectives of the unit are to advance students analytical and decision making skills by applying auditing theory to practical case studies. Strong emphasis is placed on students' ability to communicate their views in a clear, concise and logical manner.
