The following scenario relates to questions 1–4.

Scenario

You are an audit manager in a medium-sized audit firm. You are currently planning the audit of Flowers Anytime (Flowers) for the year ended 31 March 20X7. Flowers, a traditional flower wholesaler, is a new audit client for your firm.

As this is the first year you are auditing Flowers, it is necessary to understand and evaluate the company's system of internal control. The audit firm's policy requires the following steps to be taken when performing first year audits:

  1. Perform walkthrough tests
  2. Complete flowcharts and internal control evaluation questionnaires
  3. Revise the audit strategy and audit plan
  4. Perform tests of control

You have obtained the following background information about your new client. When customers call the company, their orders are taken by clerks who take details of the flowers to be delivered, the address to which they are to be delivered, and the account details of the customer. The clerks input these details into the company's computer system (whilst the order is being taken) which is integrated with the company's inventory control system.

The audit junior has made the following notes on the system for the receipt, processing and recording of the orders:

  1. All orders are recorded on pre-printed, three-part sequentially numbered order forms. One copy is kept by the sales clerk, one copy is forwarded to the warehouse for the dispatch of inventory, and one copy is sent to the customer as evidence of the order.
  2. The sales clerk regularly performs reviews of the standing data on the system, matching the price of flowers against an up to date price list.
  3. To ensure completeness of orders, a sequence check is performed on the sales invoices manually by the sales clerk and any missing documents are investigated.
  4. Sales invoices are posted on a weekly basis to the sales day book and accounts receivable ledger.

QUESTION

During the course of the audit, the audit team identified numerous deficiencies in internal control relating to the sales system. The amounts exposed to the deficiencies were high and you have concluded that it is likely that the deficiencies would result in material misstatements in the financial statements. A deficiency was also identified in the purchases system but further investigation showed this to be a minor, isolated issue.

Which of the following statements is correct regarding the deficiencies which must be included in the report to management?

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

SCENARIO

You are an audit manager in the internal audit department of KLE Co, a listed retail company. The internal audit department is auditing the company's procurement system. The system operates as follows:

Ordering

KLE's ordering department consists of six members of staff: one chief buyer and five purchasing clerks.

All orders are raised on pre-numbered purchase requisition forms, and are sent to the ordering department.

In the ordering department, each requisition form is approved and signed by the chief buyer. A purchasing clerk transfers the order information onto an order form and identifies the appropriate supplier for the goods.

Part one of the two-part order form is sent to the supplier and part two to the accounts department. The requisition is thrown away.

Goods received

When goods are received, the goods inwards department immediately raises a two-part prenumbered goods received note (GRN).

  • Part one is sent to the ordering department, which then forwards the GRN to the accounts department.
  • Part two is filed in order of the reference number for the goods being ordered (obtained from the supplier's goods dispatched documentation), in the goods inwards department.

KLE Co's management is concerned that a number of inefficiencies in the procurement system may be having a negative financial impact on the company. As a result, they have requested the internal audit department to carry out a value for money audit focused on the company's procurement practices.

QUESTION

Which of the following best summarises the meaning of 'efficiency' in the context of a Value for Money audit as requested by KLE Co's management?

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

SouthLea Co, your audit client, is a large unlisted construction company (building houses, offices and hotels) employing a large number of workers on various construction sites.

As part of planning for the audit of the financial statements for the year ended 31 December 20X6, you are reviewing the cash wages systems within the company.

The following information is available concerning the wages systems:

  1. Hours worked are recorded using a clocking in/out system. On arriving for work and at the end of each day's work, each worker enters their unique employee number on a keypad.
  2. Workers on each site are controlled by a foreman. The foreman has a record of all employee numbers and can issue temporary numbers for new employees.
  3. Any overtime is calculated by the computerised wages system and added to the standard pay.
  4. The two staff in the wages department make amendments to the computerised wages system in respect of employee holidays and illness, as well as setting up and maintaining all employee records.
  5. The computerised wages system calculates deductions from gross pay, such as employee taxes, and net pay. Every month a wages clerk checks the gross pay and deductions for a sample of employees. Finally a list of net cash payments for each employee is produced.
  6. Cash is delivered to the wages office by secure courier.
  7. The two staff place cash into wages packets for each employee along with a handwritten note of gross pay, deductions and net pay. The packets are given to the foreman for distribution to the individual employees.

SouthLea's finance director has mentioned to you that an allegation of suspected fraud had been made against a member of the senior management team during the year. This is currently being investigated by the internal audit team and the finance director hopes that the audit may shed further light on the matter.

SouthLea has an internal audit department of six staff. The chief internal auditor appoints staff within the internal audit department, although the chief executive officer is responsible for appointing the chief internal auditor. The chief internal auditor reports directly to the finance director. The chief internal auditor decides on the scope of work of the internal audit department. SouthLea does not currently have an audit committee.

QUESTION

You have been told by the finance director that the senior management team is looking to upgrade the company's computerised accounting system in a year's time. This is partly because the senior management team believes that due to the increasing size and complexity of the business, the company will need more robust general IT controls in the future.

Which TWO of the following are general IT controls?

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

Cherry Blossom Co (Cherry) manufactures custom made furniture and its year end is 30 April.

You are the audit supervisor of Poplar & Co and are developing the audit programmes for Cherry's forthcoming interim audit.

You have ascertained that Cherry purchases its raw materials from a wide range of approved suppliers. When production supervisors require raw materials, they complete a requisition form and this is submitted to the purchase ordering department. Requisition forms do not require authorisation and no reference is made to the current inventory levels of the materials being requested.

Cherry has an internal audit department which has provided you with details of the internal controls around the non-current assets cycle. One such control is that upon receipt of a new asset, each asset is assigned a unique serial number and this is recorded on the asset and in the non-current assets register.

QUESTION

In relation to the control relating to the receipt of a new asset, which TWO of the following describe the MOST RELIABLE audit procedures which enable the auditor to assess whether this control is operating effectively?

  1. Select a sample of capital additions on site, agree that a serial number is recorded on the asset and confirm it is included in the non-current assets register
  2. Select a sample of assets recorded on the non-current assets register, confirm that it includes a serial number for each asset and agree the number to the physical asset
  3. Inspect the non-current asset register and verify that there are no duplicated serial numbers
  4. Observe the receipt of assets to confirm that serial numbers are assigned and recorded

The following scenario relates to questions 1–5.

Scenario

You are the audit senior on the interim audit of Swan Co. The company introduced a new system at the beginning of this financial year. You have discussed the new system with the sales director, and have noted the following two points in particular:

  1. Existing and new customers input their orders into computerised order forms on Swan Co's website. The order notes the items requested, the billing and sales addresses, and the customer number (if any). The system checks whether goods are in stock and approves the order instantly if so. The order is forwarded automatically to the sales department to be prepared.
  2. When an order is ready to send out, the sales department inputs the details into their system, and if it matches the order, a goods outward note is produced and the invoicing department is notified automatically. Staff have experienced multiple issues of goods outward notes not matching on the system, and have often resorted to simply printing the order and using it as a goods outward note. The printed order is then taken to the invoicing department for invoicing.

The partner has requested that you document the new system fully during the interim audit. She wants the system notes to be easy to update, and to contain an element of evaluation of the system.

QUESTION

In the light of the partner's request concerning documentation, you are considering different options for recording the system.

Which of the following recording methods most suits her requirements?
