Types of Accounting Engagements

1. Notice to Reader: This type of engagement is also referred to as a compilation because we compile unaudited financial information into financial statements for you. The financial information used to compile the financial statements is provided to us from you and we do not audit, analyze or provide assurance to the reader of the statements about the underlying information. This type of financial statement is only appropriate in limited circumstances where the client and other users do not need the financial statements prepared in compliance with Canadian Accounting Standards.

2. Review: The purpose of a review engagement is provide the users of the financial statements with a higher level of assurance that the financial statements are plausible (worth of belief). When we prepare the statements in a Review Engagement we must be independent from you and have sufficient information about your business to make intelligent inquiries and to assess the information we receive from you. A review usually entails making inquiries, performing analytical procedures and having discussions with you. A review provides less assurance to the reader than an audit. It is defined as giving ‘negative assurance’, which means nothing has come to the accountant’s attention that would indicate the financial statements are not presented in accordance with Canadian Accounting Standards, and a reservation together with appropriate disclosure and explanation is provided.

3. Audit: Audited financial statements provide the highest level of assurance to the reader. In an audit engagement we are independent of the client, have knowledge of the client’s business as in the Review Engagement, but we must carry out sufficient audit procedures to enable us to express an opinion as to whether or not the financial statements are presented in accordance with Canadian Auditing Standards. In an audit, we also evaluate your organization’s internal controls, inspect documents and invoices, observe assets and inventory and make enquiries outside your organization in our process of gathering sufficient and appropriate audit evidence.
