Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the standalonefinancial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraudor error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordancewith SAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements canarise from fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in theaggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of userstaken on the basis of these standalone financial statements. As part of an audit inaccordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment and maintain professionalskepticism throughout the audit. We also:
- Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the standalone financialstatements whether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusionforgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.
- Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant to the audit in orderto design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion on whether theCompany has adequate internal financial controls system in place and the operatingeffectiveness of such controls.
- Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness ofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
- Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basis ofaccounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a material uncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on the Company'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a material uncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to the related disclosures inthe standalone financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate to modify ouropinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the date of ourauditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company to cease tocontinue as a going concern.
- Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the standalone financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the financial statements thatindividually or in aggregate makes it probable that the economic decisions of areasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may be influenced. We considerquantitative materiality and qualitative factors in (i) planning the scope of our auditwork and in evaluating the results of our work; and (ii) to evaluate the effect of anyidentified misstatements in the financial statements. We communicate with those chargedwith governance regarding among other matters the planned scope and timing of the auditand significant audit findings including any significant deficiencies in internal controlthat we identify during our audit. We also provide those charged with governance with astatement that we have complied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independenceand to communicate with them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably bethought to bear on our independence and where applicable related safeguards. From thematters communicated with those charged with governance we determine those matters thatwere of most significance in the audit of Standalone Financial Statements of the currentperiod and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in our auditors'report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matter or when inextremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not be communicated in ourreport because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably be expected tooutweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
