Benefits of External Audits

 

Although many organisations view the process of auditing as part of a mandatory requirement that they must satisfy, this type of thinking considerably underestimates the value of the external audit process.
External Audits can benefit a wide range of users in various ways, including:
Directors (particularly Non-executive Directors)

  • Adherence to Corporations Law obligations
  • Better corporate governance issues
  • Better integrity of the relied upon internally prepared financial information
  • Better financial risk management issues including adequacy of internal controls, solvency, etc
  • An external perspective of the business independent of day-to-day management

 

Management

  • Reliable financial information – better management decisions
  • Improved management of the financial risks of business
  • Stronger internal financial discipline
  • A supplement to the internal finance team skill set
  • External assessment of accounting policies – improved financial performance reporting

 

Owners/Shareholders

  • Reliable financial information to assess managements performance
  • An external perspective of the business independent of day-to-day management

 

Financiers

  • Reliable financial information – more ‘lend worthy’
  • Improved credibility of covenant reporting

 

Prospective Purchasers

  • Stronger internal control systems – increased business value
