When the auditor's regular examination leading to an opinion on financial statements discloses specific circumstances that make him suspect that fraud may exist and he concludes that the results of such fraud, if any, could not be so material as to affect his opinion, he should a.refer the matter to the appropriate representatives of the client with the recommendation that it is to be pursued to a conclusion. b. immediately extend his audit procedures to determine if fraud has occurred and, if so, the amount thereof. c.reach an understanding with the client as to whether the auditor or the client, subject to the auditor's review, is to make the investigation necessary to determine whether fraud has occurred and, if so, the amount thereof. d. make a note in his working papers of the possibility of a fraud of immaterial amount so as to pursue the matter next year. 2.
