Auditing, Attestation, and Assurance Services Auditing is the process of obtaining objective data or evidence directly related to the company being audited. The goal of the audit is to discover the integrity and reliability of financial information. Auditing involves testing the information gathered for compliance. The auditing process of financial statements adds value to current and potential users of a company. Auditing is also appreciated, for auditing enhances the CPA’s reputation for integrity and objectivity. Attestation involves reporting the analyzed results that were confirmed in the audit process. The CPA assigned the task of attesting issues a written report and takes responsibility pertaining to the accurateness of the information presented. Responsibility by the CPA depends on the level of the report. For example: an examination is a type of audit, but is a review that is less in scope than a full audit. Agreed upon procedures are procedures that are listed and have results that are reported for each procedure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
