Audit Assistant Workflow


Auditing and assurance standards have been integrated into a logical flow following best auditing practice.

Planning including risk identification flows through to testing based on risks identified, then finally to a summary of the work done and results obtained. Finally appropriate reports are produced.

The user begins work in the A section, completing planning at the E section, then  completing evidential testing according to the risks and other factors identified in planning while working through the F to V sections. Finally 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
  • Includes ability to load the client trial balance, and create journal adjustments
  • 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 which is then carried through to selected work papers
  • Further risks identified during fieldwork require planning document to be updated
  • Other key pages are Trial Balance, Materiality, Risk Assessment and Planning, Adjustments, Management Report and Audit Summary 
  • Evidence is added into the file by way of comments and attachments 
  • Questionnaires and checklists are shared with client to gather data and evidence
  • Management letter points, errors, key issues, follow ups, deadlines etc. are identified during the process
  • Includes full review process options, comprehensive references to auditing standards and financial reporting checklists
  • At conclusion the job is rolled over which combines all pages and attached files into one PDF document for archiving
  • Roll over sets up the job for next year, with content able to be brought forward and edited as required.
