Issues with the client representation letter.
a. Would it be appropriate for Pannor to reopen the audit testing phases in order to expand procedures, in light of the lack of representative evidence from management? Why or why not?
b. Will Pannor’s firm still be able to issue an unqualified audit report if it does not receive the representations letter? Research the standard wording to be included in an unqualified audit report, as well as the typical wording included in a client representations letter. Base your answer on your findings.
