Obtaining the information by confirmation from an independent party (e.g., trustee) who holds the securities. 10.4 A controlled count of the client’s investment securities consists of the audit team gaining access to the securities in the presence of a responsible client officer. The count is first controlled by simultaneously counting or sealing off other negotiable funds (such as securities held as collateral) and second by the auditors personally conducting the count. When the count is completed, the auditors should obtain a written statement from the client’s officer that the securities were returned intact. A securities count working paper should include a record of the name of the company represented by the certificate, the interest rate for bonds, the dividend rate for preferred stocks, the due date for bonds, the serial numbers on the certificates, the face value of bonds, the number or face amount of bonds and stock shares, and notes on the name of the owner shown on the face of the certificate or on the endorsements on the back (should be the client company). 10.5
