Also projections of any evaluation of the internal financial controlsoverfinancial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the internalfinancial control over financial reporting may become inadequate because of changes inconditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures maydeteriorate.

(a) Customeracceptance;

(b) Customercreditevaluation;

(c) Establishing customer credit limitfor sales;

This could potentially result in the company recognising revenuewithout establishing reasonable certainty of ultimate collection.
