Auditing is the independent examination of financial statement of an organization with a view of expressing an opinion as to know whether those statements give a true and fair view and complies with the relevant status. This opinion is expressed in the form of a report. The person carrying out such an examination is known as an auditor. The auditor has not reviewed the financial statement only, he also carried out a skillful and careful examination of the records of the organization in order to ensure that the financial statement are a reflection of the affairs of the organization as appeared in those records.
It is important to appreciate that for any procedure to quality as a part of the system of management audit, it must be established or at least approved by management. Hence, it is at part of the auditor to establish the system of management audit. Whenever, the auditor is involved in the establishment of audit management, heactys only in an advising capacity. Therefore, the duties of prevention and detection of frauds and errors are primarily the responsibility of management and has not form parts of the statutory responsibility of the auditors.
