Audit Procedures Done by Date W/P Ref
1. Confirm selected bank accounts and special
arrangements

Select bank accounts for confirmation in order to


obtain a moderate to low level of assurance that the
aforementioned audit objectives are achieved. Bank
confirmations should be sent to all banking
relationships to identify accounts not included in the
general ledger.

Confirmation requests should be sent under our


control and, second requests and, where warranted,
third requests should be mailed when responses to
confirmation requests have not been received within a
reasonable time.

Consider sending a special inquiry letter to ascertain


the existence of special arrangements or restrictions,
for example, compensating balance arrangements,
security arrangements, written guarantees.

2. Review confirmation replies

For confirmations returned:

a) agree account information and account balance to


comparative summary;
b) investigate all discrepancies reported or questions
raised in review and determine whether any
adjustments are necessary; and
c) assess impact of special arrangements or
restrictions identified and determine whether
disclosure is appropriate.

3. Test accounts where there is no confirmation

In the unusual situation where we do not receive a


bank confirmation and are willing to forego the receipt
of the bank confirmation, consider performing the
following procedures to obtain a high level of
assurance that the aforementioned audit objectives
are achieved:

a) obtain subsequent month bank statement, bank


reconciliation and supporting documentation.
Consider obtaining information directly from the bank;
b) test the mathematical accuracy of the bank
reconciliation; (accuracy)
c) trace outstanding items listed on the bank
reconciliation to the subsequent month's bank
statement and for those not traced, trace to the cash
disbursements records for the period prior to the
balance sheet date; (accuracy and
existence/occurrence)
d) trace deposits in transit listed on the bank
reconciliation to the subsequent month's bank
statement and for those not traced, trace to the cash
receipts records for the period prior to the balance
sheet date; (accuracy and existence/occurrence)
e) obtain explanation for large, unusual reconciling
items and trace to supporting documentation and/or
entries in the cash records, as appropriate; (accuracy

f) review the date the above items cleared the bank or
were recorded in the client's books to ensure
appropriate recording period. Trace to supporting
documentation as necessary; and (cut-off)

dishonoured checks and significant adjustments in the
subsequent month, and record adjustments as
necessary. (accuracy and existence/occurrence)
