AUDIT APPROACH

Muhammad Irfan & Co. Audit Manual sets out the principles by which we are required to carry out our audit work. The manual is compliant both with International Standards on Auditing and the ethical requirements of the International Federation of Accountants as adopted and changed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Pakistan.

The approach focuses on the following areas:

  • Gaining a thorough understanding of the client’s business
  • Assessing where there is a risk of material mis-statement in the financial statements subject to audit and considering the client’s controls to address those risks
  • Planning and performing audit tests designed to obtain evidence of the key financial statement assertions
  • Review and quality control procedures that ensure the planned work has been carried out and that appropriate conclusions have been reached
  • Forming an opinion and reporting that opinion.
