Please take special note of: * Association with Financial Statements * Level of Assurance Reservations in Auditor’s Report Effects of Materiality on Auditor’s Report SOLUTIONS FOR REVIEW CHECKPOINTS - Main Body of Chapter 3.1 Investors, creditors and other users tend to assume that financial statements are audited and "everything is OK" whenever they know a public accountant has been involved in producing the statements. If an audit has not been performed, accountants need to make the fact known so users will not mislead themselves. If an audit has been performed, accountants must report their work and conclusions for users' benefit. 3.2 Students may identify more than one description of the "most important" distinction between an opinion and a denial. All the following are valid, although (a) is intended to be the "Most important": a. An opinion (unqualified, qualified or adverse) is an explicit statement of the auditor's conclusions), while a denial is an (empty) assertion of "no conclusion." b. An (unqualified) opinion is the highest level of assurance, while a denial is the lowest level (no assurance).
