The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

You are the audit manager in the firm of WSD & Co, an audit firm. You are planning the audit of Truse Co, which operates as a high street retailer and has 15 shops.

All of the shops are owned by Truse Co and have always been included in the financial statements at cost less depreciation. The shops are depreciated over 50 years. However, you know from discussions with management that the company intends to include one of the shops, the flagship store, at a revalued amount rather than cost in the current accounting period. The revalued amount is expected to be materially above the carrying value of the shop. The valuation will be based on a management estimate.

Management has explained that the reason for the revaluation is because the flagship store is located in an area where property prices have risen much more quickly compared to other shop locations. They consider the flagship store to be significantly undervalued on the statement of financial position.

Management will not depreciate the revalued amount allocated to the flagship store's building because they maintain the building to a high standard.

QUESTION

The audit junior has been assigned to the audit of the bank and cash balances of Truse Co.

He has noted down the audit evidence he plans to obtain in respect of the bank and cash balances:

(1) Bank reconciliation carried out by the cashier
(2) Bank confirmation report from Truse Co's bank
(3) Verbal confirmation from the directors that the overdraft limit is to be increased
(4) Cash count carried out by the audit junior himself

What is the correct order of the Audit evidence mentioned above, starting with the most reliable first?

QUESTION

At the planning meeting, it was decided that an auditor's expert should be sought in relation to the valuation of Truse Co's properties as the company has not used an independent valuer.

ISA 620 Using the Work of an Auditor's Expert states that the nature, timing and extent of audit procedures to evaluate the work of the auditor's expert depend on the circumstances of the engagement.

Which of the following matters should the audit team NOT consider in determining the nature, timing and extent of these audit procedures?

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

You are an audit manager, auditing the financial statements of Newthorpe Engineering Co, a listed company, for the year ended 30 April 20X7.

Newthorpe's management has provided you with a schedule of the realisable values of the inventories. A full inventory count was carried out at 30 April 20X7.

Audit tests have confirmed that the inventory counts are accurate and there are no purchases or sales cut-off errors.

One of the company's factories was closed on 30 April 20X7. The plant and equipment and inventories were to be sold. By the time the audit work commenced in June 20X7, most of the inventory had been sold.

You have instructed the audit junior to evaluate the valuation of the inventory related to the closing factory at the year end. The audit junior has sent you a list of planned audit procedures.

On 17 March 20X7, Newthorpe's managing director was dismissed for gross misconduct. It was decided that the managing director's salary should stop from that date, and that no redundancy or compensation payments should be made.

The managing director has claimed unfair dismissal and is taking legal action against the company to obtain compensation for loss of his employment. The managing director says he has a service contract with the company which would entitle him to two years' salary at the date of dismissal. The directors believe that there is a 35% chance of the managing director succeeding in his claim.

The financial statements for the year ended 30 April 20X7 record the resignation of the director. However, they do not mention his dismissal and no provision for any damages has been included in the financial statements.

QUESTION

The dismissal of Newthorpe's managing director has alerted you to the possibility that the company may not have complied with employment regulations. You therefore need to determine the impact that such non-compliance may have on the audit.

ISA 250 (Revised) Consideration of Laws and Regulations in an Audit of Financial Statements sets out the responsibilities of the auditor in relation to the entity’s compliance with laws and regulations.

Which of the following responsibilities is CORRECT regarding the responsibilities of Newthorpe's auditors in relation to compliance with employment regulations?

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

Your audit firm Cal & Co has just gained a new audit client, Tirrol Co, in a tender in which Cal & Co offered competitively low audit fees. You are the manager in charge of planning the audit work. Tirrol Co's year end is 30 June 20X9 with a scheduled date to complete the audit of 15 August 20X9. The date now is 3 June 20X9.

Tirrol Co provides repair services to motor vehicles from 25 different locations. All inventory, sales and purchasing systems are computerised, with each location maintaining its own computer system. The software in each location is the same because the programs were written specifically for Tirrol Co by a reputable software house. Data from each location is amalgamated on a monthly basis at Tirrol Co's head office to produce management and financial statements.

You are currently planning your audit approach for Tirrol Co. One option being considered is to rewrite Cal & Co's audit software to interrogate the computerised inventory systems in each location of Tirrol Co (except for head office) as part of inventory valuation testing. The testing will need to take place while the system is live. You are aware that July is a major holiday period for Tirrol Co.

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

You are the audit manager in the firm of Wright & Co, a large accountancy firm with 30 offices.

It is January 20X6, and a new intake of graduates and apprentices has recently started work at the audit department after completing their first ACCA exams. Julie, one of the new recruits, has been allocated to the audit of Wilbur Co, your audit client, for the year ended 31 December 20X5. You are responsible for providing guidance to her and have asked her to assist in the audit of trade payables and cash at bank.

Trade payables

Julie has performed a reconciliation of key trade payables balances as follows and has concluded that no further work is required:

Balance per purchase ledger
$'000
Cash in transit
$'000
Goods in transit
$'000
Balance per supplier statement
$'000
Supplier XX1 400 - 100 (1) 500
Supplier XX2 650 50 (2) - 700
Supplier XX3 100 - - 100
1,150 1,300

Notes

  1. Agreed to GRN dated 31 December 20X5
  2. Agreed to cheque posted in the cash book 30 December 20X5

Your follow-up work on this identifies that:

  • The goods in transit received from supplier XX1 were recognised in inventory at 31 December 20X5
  • The cheque payment to supplier XX2 appeared on the bank statement on 2 January 20X6
  • There is a nil balance on the purchase accruals account

Cash at bank

In order to gain assurance over the company's bank balance, you asked Julie to arrange for a bank confirmation letter to be sent to Wilbur Co's bank.

Julie has also prepared a bank reconciliation. This shows a significant number of lodgements which were recorded in the cash book on 31 December 20X5. You are concerned that the cash book may have been kept open to include remittances actually received after the year end.

QUESTION

Which of the following pieces of audit evidence would provide the most reliable audit evidence that the lodgements recorded on 31 December 20X5 do not relate to amounts received after the period end?

Julie has also prepared a bank reconciliation. This shows a significant number of lodgements which were recorded in the cash book on 31 December 20X5. You are concerned that the cash book may have been kept open to include remittances actually received after the year end.

1 / 5

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

Porthos, a limited liability company, is a retailer of sports equipment, specialising in racquet sports such as tennis, squash and badminton. The company purchases equipment from a variety of different suppliers and then resells this online. Customers place their orders directly on the company website. The ordering/sales software automatically verifies the order details, customer address and credit card information prior to orders being verified and goods dispatched.

Once the order has been verified the system produces a pre-numbered picking note. The order is then picked in the warehouse and a goods dispatched note (GDN) is produced. A copy of this is scanned in to the system and a sequentially numbered invoice is automatically produced and sent to the customer.

You are the audit senior working on the audit of Porthos for the year ended 31 December 20X7.

As the sales system is highly automated the audit manager has decided that computer-assisted audit techniques (CAATs) should be used where possible in the audit of the sales account. You identified the key steps to be taken in planning the application of CAATs, as follows:

  1. Define the types of transactions to be tested
  2. Set the objective of the CAAT application
  3. Define the procedures to be performed on the data
  4. Determine the content and accessibility of the entity's files

The manager has also decided that test data would be used to test the input of details into the ordering system. You identified the following test data which could be used:

(i) Orders for unusually large quantities
(ii) Orders with fields left blank
(iii) Orders with invalid inventory codes
(iv) Orders with complete and valid details

In addition to the sales income generated from the sale of sports equipment Porthos earns a small amount of rental income by renting out surplus warehouse space to a local company. The rental agreement shows that the annual rent from 1 March 20X7 was $24,000, increased from $21,600 per annum.

QUESTION

You are using a proof in total calculation to assess the accuracy of the rental income.

Which of the following correctly shows the calculation which would be used?
