Auditor's Responsibilities for the Audit of the Standalone 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 auditor's report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assurance is a highlevel of assurance but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted in accordance with SAswill always detect a material misstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise fromfraud 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 thesefinancial statements.
As part of an audit in accordance with SAs we exercise professional judgment andmaintainprofessional skepticism throughout the audit. We also:
Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financialstatementswhether due to fraud or error design and perform audit procedures responsiveto thoserisks and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis forour opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud ishigher than for one resulting from error as fraud may involve collusionforgeryintentional omissions misrepresentations or the override of internal control.
Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order todesign auditprocedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Under section 143(3)(i)of theCompanies Act 2013 we are also responsible for expressing our opinion onwhetherthe company has adequate internal financial controls system in place and theoperatingeffectiveness of such controls.
Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessofaccounting estimates and related disclosures made by management.
Conclude on the appropriateness of management's use of the going concern basisofaccounting and based on the audit evidence obtained whether a materialuncertaintyexists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt on theCompany'sability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty existswe are required to draw attention in our auditor's report to therelated disclosures in thefinancial statements or if such disclosures are inadequate tomodify our opinion. Ourconclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up to the dateof our auditor's report. However future events or conditions may cause the Company tocease tocontinue as a going concern.
Evaluate the overall presentation structure and content of the financialstatements including the disclosures and whether the financial statements representtheunderlying transactions and events in a manner that achieves fair presentation.
We communicate with those charged with governance regarding among other matterstheplanned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings including anysignificantdeficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.
We also provide those charged with governance with a statement that we havecompliedwith relevant ethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate withthemall relationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear onourindependence and where applicable related safeguards.
From the matters communicated with those charged with governance we determinethosematters that were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements ofthe currentperiod and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters inour auditor'sreport unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matteror when inextremely rare circumstances we determine that a matter should not becommunicated inour report because the adverse consequences of doing so would reasonably beexpected tooutweigh the public interest benefits of such communication.
