Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the StandaloneFinancial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether thestandalone financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement whetherdue to fraud or error and to issue an auditor's report that includes our opinion.Reasonable assurance is a high level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an auditconducted in accordance with SAs will always detect a material misstatement when itexists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and are considered material ifindividually or in the aggregate they could reasonably be expected to influence theeconomic decisions of users taken on the basis of these standalone financial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professionaljudgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
1. Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of thestandalone financial statements whether due to fraud or error design and perform auditprocedures responsive to those risks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient andappropriate to provide a basis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a materialmisstatement resulting from fraud is higher than for one resulting from error as fraudmay involve collusion forgery intentional omissions misrepresentations or the overrideof internal control.
2. Obtain an understanding of internal financial controls relevant tothe audit in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances.Under section 143(3)(i) of the Act we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhether the Company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating effectiveness of such controls.
3. Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and thereasonableness of accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
4. Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of thegoing concern basis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether amaterial uncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significantdoubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that amaterial uncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditor'sreport to the related disclosures in the standalone financial statements or if suchdisclosures are inadequate to modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the auditevidence obtained up to the date of our auditor's report. However future events orconditions may cause the Company to cease to continue as a going concern.
5. Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of thestandalone financial statements including the disclosures and whether the standalonefinancial statements represent the underlying transactions and events in a manner thatachieves fair presentation.
Materiality is the magnitude of misstatements in the standalonefinancial statements that individually or in aggregate makes it probable that theeconomic decisions of a reasonably knowledgeable user of the financial statements may beinfluenced. We consider quantitative materiality and qualitative factors in
(i) planning the scope of our audit work and in evaluating the resultsof our work; and
(ii) to evaluate the effect of any identified misstatements in thefinancial statements.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding amongother matters the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findingsincluding any significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during ouraudit. We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we havecomplied with relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicatewith them all relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onour independence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance wedetermine those matters that were of most significance in the audit of the standalonefinancial statements of the current period and are therefore the key audit matters. Wedescribe these matters in our auditor's report unless law or regulation precludespublic disclosure about the matter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determinethat a matter should not be communicated in our report because the adverse consequences ofdoing so would reasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.
