Project Description:

for each of the following independent situations relating to the audit of internal control, indicate the reason for and the type of audit report you would issue.a. during the audit of wood pharmaceuticals, you are surprised to find several control deficiencies in the company’s internal control. you determine that there is a reasonable possibility that any one of them could result in a misstatement that is significant. although the odds are extremely low that the deficiencies, singly or taken together, will result in a material misstatement of the company’s financial statements, the large number of problems causes you concern. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date.b. you agreed to perform an audit for rodriguez & co., after the client’s year-end. due to time constraints, your audit firm could not complete a full audit of internal control. however, the evidence you did collect suggests that the company has exceptionally strong icfr. you seriously doubt that a material weakness would have been found if time had permitted a more thorough audit. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date.c. george & diana company’s internal audit function identified a material weakness in the company’s icfr. the client corrected this weakness about four months prior to the end of the annual reporting period. management reassessed controls in the area and found them effective. after reevaluating and retesting the relevant controls, you believe the controls to have been effective for a sufficient period of time to provide adequate evidence that they were designed and operating effectively as of the end of the client’s reporting period. however, the controls clearly were not effective for the first eight months of the reporting period. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date.d. you find no significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in the icfr of your audit client, takamoto building co., but when considering the audit risk model, you still decide to set control risk at the maximum for purposes of the financial statement audit. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date. e. reynolds’ distilleries identified what you agree is a material weakness and made an adverse assessment in its report on internal control. the company had not corrected the material weakness as of the end of the reporting period. f. as part of the audit of icfr, you check with management for significant subsequent events. you identify an event that sheds light on a condition in existence prior to, and as of, the end of the reporting period. the condition is likely to significantly impact the effectiveness of the company’s icfr. unfortunately, you cannot determine the event’s true impact on the client’s system of internal control. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date. g. after auditing your client’s internal controls, you conclude the system of icfr is well designed and operating effectively. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date. however, you later conclude you cannot give the client a clean opinion on the financial statements due to a highly material misstatement you identified in performing substantive procedures. h. cindy & david company’s management identified a material weakness in the company’s icfr during its assessment process. the client corrected this weakness about a month prior to the end of the annual reporting period. management reassessed controls in the area, and believes they were effective as of the end of the reporting period. after reevaluating and retesting the relevant controls, you agree that the new controls are well designed, but since the controls over this particular area are applied only once at the end of each month (i.e., the controls have only operated two times since being corrected), you do not believe you have sufficient audit evidence to assess their operating effectiveness. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date. i. during the audit of icfr for big al & larry industries, you discover several control deficiencies. you determine that there is more than a reasonable possibility that any one of them could result in a financial statement misstatement. although you do not believe that any of the deficiencies taken individually will result in a material misstatement, you believe there is a moderately low likelihood that, taken together, the deficiencies could produce a material misstatement. management’s written assessment concludes that the company’s internal control was effective as of the report date.
