Auditors Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial Statements
Our objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement whether due to fraud or errorand to issue an auditors report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is ahigh level of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance withSAs will always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arisefrom fraud or error and are considered material if individually or in the aggregate theycould reasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements.
Paragraph 40(b) of this SA explains that the shaded material below can be located in anAppendix to the auditors report. Paragraph 40(c) explains that when law regulationor applicable auditing standards expressly permit reference can be made to a website ofan appropriate authority that contains the description of the auditorsresponsibilities rather than including this material in the auditors reportprovided that the description on the website addresses and is not inconsistent with thedescription of the auditors responsibilities below.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the 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 control relevant to the audit in order todesign audit procedures that are a ppropriate in the circumstances. Under section143(3)(i) of the Companies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinionon whether the company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperating effectiveness of such controls.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of managements use of the going concernbasis of accounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theCompanys ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists we are required to draw attention in our auditors report to therelated disclosures in the financial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate tomodify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to thedate of our auditors report. However future events or conditions may cause theCompany to cease to continue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements represent theunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matters theplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit. We alsoprovide those charged with governance with a statement that we have complied with relevantethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determine thosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of thecurrent period and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditors report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about thematter or when in extremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonablybe expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
In certain cases the Company has not charged interest on Loans and advances given tocertain parties. The non-charging interest makes these loans Interest free loans andthereby violates section 186(7) of the Companies Act 2013. Effect on the aforesaid cannotbe quantified. Our opinion is not modified in respect of this matter.
