An examination and verification of companys financial and accounting record and supporting documents bay a professionals such as public certified accountant.
An audit is an evaluation of an organization, system, process, project or product. It is performed by a competent, independent, objective, and unbiased person or persons, known as auditors. The purpose is to verify that the subject of the audit was completed or operates according to approved and accepted standards, statutes, regulations, or practices. It also evaluates controls to determine if conformance will continue, and recommends necessary changes in policies, procedures or controls. Auditing is a part of some quality control certifications such as ISO 9000 IN ACCOUNTING AUDIT IS: Systematic examination and verification of a firms book of accountant, transaction record, other relevant documents, and physical inspection of inventory by qualified accountants (auditors). Quality control: Periodic (usually every six months) onsite-verification (by a certification authority) to ascertain whether or not a documented quality system is being effectively implemented.

An audit report is a codification of the process, findings and outcomes of the audit process, usually prepared by the auditors and project team.

The auditors report is a formal opinion, or disclaimer thereof, issued by either an internal auditor or an independent external auditor as a result of an internal or external audit or evaluation performed on a legal entity or subdivision thereof (called an auditee). The report is subsequently provided to a user (such as an individual, a group of persons, a company, a government, or even the general public, among others) as an assurance service in order for the user to make decisions based on the results of the audit

UNESCO definition refers to audits of institutions and also audits of agencies:

(I) the document prepared following a quality assessment peer review team site visit that is generally focused on institutional quality, academic standards, learning infrastructure, and staffing. The report about an institution describes the quality assurance (QA) arrangements of the institution and the effects of these

arrangements on the quality of its programmes. The audit report is made available to the institution, first in draft form for initial comments, and then in its final, official form. It contains, among other things, the description of the method of the audit, the findings, the conclusions of the auditors, and various appendices listing the questions asked. In Europe, the document is often called an evaluation report or an assessment report. (ii) Such a report may also be prepared about an accreditation agency, describing its quality assurance arrangements and the effect of these arrangements on the quality of the programmes in the institutions for which it is responsible. (Vlsceanu et al., 2007, p. 32)

CHEA (2002) refers to the UK situation

Audit Report: (U.K.) The document prepared following a quality assessment peer review team site visit. The report generally focuses on institutional quality, academic standards, learning infrastructure, and staffing. In Europe, the document is more likely to be called an "evaluation report" or "assessment report."

HEQC (2004) in South Africa define:

Audit report: Evaluation report from the HEQC to the audited institution. On the basis of the quantitative and qualitative evidence gathered during the audit, the report is developed by the HEQC on the basis of panel deliberations and finalised in consultation with the chairperson and other members of the audit panel. The report provides an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of the internal quality arrangements of the institution, as well as commendations and recommendations in the various target areas of the audit.

Audit Report Ratings

An audit report gives the company or person in question one of four ratings or categorizations based on the findings of the auditor. An "unqualified" audit signals a clean report, wherein no discrepancies were found with the financial statements or paperwork. A "qualified" report means a few problems were found but nothing that raises red flags or is

so egregious that they hurt the reputation of whoever is being audited. An "adverse opinion report" means there were too many errors and misrepresentations found in the financial statements that the person being audited cannot be considered to be in conformity of standard accounting principles and laws. Finally a "disclaimer of opinion" report means the auditor cannot give a rating at all, be it due to conflict of interest or lack of proper paperwork that makes a fair rating impossible or unethical to give.

Unqualified Opinion
The most frequent type of report is referred to as the Unqualified Opinion, and is regarded by many as the equivalent of a clean bill of health to a patient, which has led many to call it the Clean Opinion, but in reality it is not a clean bill of health. This type of report is issued by an auditor when the financial statements presented are free of material misstatements and are represented fairly in accordance with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), which in other words means that the companys financial condition, position, and operations are fairly presented in the financial statements. It is the best type of report an auditee may receive from an external auditor. The first paragraph (commonly referred to as the introductory paragraph) states the audit work performed and identifies the responsibilities of the auditor and the auditee in relation to the financial statements. The second paragraph (commonly referred to as the scope paragraph) details the scope of audit work, provides a general description of the nature of the work, examples of procedures performed, and any limitations the audit faced based on the nature of the work. This paragraph also states that the audit was performed in accordance with the countrys prevailing generally accepted auditing standards and regulations. The third paragraph (commonly referred to as the opinion paragraph) simply states the auditors opinion on the financial statements and whether they are in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.The following is an example of a standard unqualified auditors report on financial statements as it is used in most countries, using the name ABC Company as an auditees name:


Board of Directors, Stockholders, Owners, and/or Management of ABC Company, Inc. 123 Main St. Any town, Any Country We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of ABC Company, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 20XX and the related statements of income, retained earnings, and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in (the country where the report is issued). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 20XX, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in (the country where the report is issued). AUDITORS SIGNATURE Auditors name and address Date = Last day of any significant field work this date should not be dated earlier than when the auditor has sufficient audit evidence to support the opinion.

Qualified Opinion report

A Qualified Opinion report is issued when the auditor encountered one of two types of situations which do not comply with generally accepted accounting principles,

however the rest of the financial statements are fairly presented. This type of opinion is very similar to an unqualified or clean opinion, but the report states that the financial statements are fairly presented with a certain exception which is otherwise misstated. The two types of situations which would cause an auditor to issue this opinion over the unqualified opinion are: Single deviation from GAAP this type of qualification occurs when one or more areas of the financial statements do not conform to GAAP (e.g. are misstated), but do not affect the rest of the financial statements from being fairly presented when taken as a whole. Examples of this include a company dedicated to a retail business that did not correctly calculate the depreciation expense of its building. Even if this expense is considered material, since the rest of the financial statements do conform with GAAP, then the auditor qualifies the opinion by describing the depreciation misstatement in the report and continues to issue a clean opinion on the rest of the financial statements. Limitation of scope - this type of qualification occurs when the auditor could not audit one or more areas of the financial statements, and although they could not be verified, the rest of the financial statements were audited and they conform GAAP. Examples of this include an auditor not being able to observe and test a companys inventory of goods. If the auditor audited the rest of the financial statements and is reasonably sure that they conform with GAAP, then the auditor simply states that the financial statements are fairly presented, with the exception of the inventory which could not be audited. The wording of the qualified report is very similar to the unqualified opinion, but an explanatory paragraph is added to explain the reasons for the qualification after the scope paragraph but before the opinion paragraph. The introductory paragraph is left exactly the same as in the unqualified opinion, while the scope and the opinion paragraphs receive a slight modification in line with the qualification in the explanatory paragraph. The scope paragraph is edited to include the following phrase in the first sentence, so that the user may be immediately aware of the qualification. This placement also

informs the user that, except for the qualification, the rest of the audit was performed without qualifications: Except as discussed in the following paragraph, we conducted our audit... The opinion paragraph is also edited to include an additional phrase in the first sentence, so that the user is reminded that the auditors opinion explicitly excludes the qualification expressed. Depending on the type of qualification, the phrase is edited to either state the qualification and the adjustments needed to correct it, or state the scope limitation and that adjustment could have but not necessarily been required in order to correct it. For a qualification arising from a deviation from GAAP, the following phrase is added to the opinion paragraph, using the depreciation example mentioned above: In our opinion, except for the effects of the Companys incorrect determination of depreciation expense, the financial statement referred to in the first paragraph presents fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of

Adverse Opinion report:

An Adverse Opinion is issued when the auditor determines that the financial statements of an auditee are materially misstated and, when considered as a whole, do not conform to GAAP. It is considered the opposite of an unqualified or clean opinion, essentially stating that the information contained is materially incorrect, unreliable, and inaccurate in order to assess the auditees financial position and results of operations. Investors, lending institutions, and governments very rarely accept an auditees financial statements if the auditor issued an adverse opinion, and usually request the auditee to correct the financial statements and obtain another audit report. The wording of the adverse report is similar to the qualified report. The scope paragraph is modified accordingly and an explanatory paragraph is added to explain the reason for the adverse opinion after the scope paragraph but before the opinion paragraph. However, the most significant change in the adverse report from the qualified report is in 7

the opinion paragraph, where the auditor clearly states that the financial statements are not in accordance with GAAP, which means that they, as a whole, are unreliable, inaccurate, and do not present a fair view of the auditees position and operations. In our opinion, because of the situations mentioned above (in the explanatory paragraph), the financial statements referred to in the first paragraph do not present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of

Disclaimer of Opinion report:

A Disclaimer of Opinion, commonly referred to simply as a Disclaimer, is issued when the auditor could not form, and consequently refuses to present, an opinion on the financial statements. This type of report is issued when the auditor tried to audit an entity but could not complete the work due to various reasons and does not issue an opinion. The Disclaimer report is issued only when the auditors are unable to perform their work. When not enough time or information is available, a disclaimer of opinion report is issued. This is rare: An auditor will often only make this report if the company refuses to reveal specific information or if the auditing firm and the company break their contract. The following is a draft of the three main paragraphs of a disclaimer of opinion because of inadequate accounting records of an auditee, which is considered a significant scope of limitation: We were engaged to audit the accompanying balance sheet of ABC Company, Inc. (the Company) as of December 31, 20XX and the related statements of income and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. The Company does not maintain adequate accounting records to provide sufficient information for the preparation of the basic financial statements. The Companys accounting records do not constitute a double-entry system which can produce financial statements. 8

Because of the significance of the matters discussed in the preceding paragraphs, the scope of our work was not sufficient to enable us to express, and we do not express, an opinion of the financial statements referred to in the first paragraph.

An audit report comes in handy in many financial situations. The report is essentially the same as a job reference. It takes the research and findings of a trained financial specialist and uses them to verify that your financial reputation and future is secure. The audit report then serves as a good word to creditors, banks and any other financial institution that may need to investigate your financial history and stability. A clean audit report can help when getting a loan or line of credit.

. Less job satisfaction of employees. Customer facing problem of NADRA verification while opening their accounts because its process is time consuming To give everyone equal protocol is lacking among employees Customers having account with small amount are not given same services like dealing to others who have high account. Lack of decentralization. Banks is planning to restructure its departments and is going to be centralized very soon. Lack of organizational loyalty among employees. Promotions generally on seniority basis. Attitude of senior managers at head office has to change towards junior staff Competent staff unwilling to serve in the audit due to an absence of firm rotation policy. As most of the employees are young they have more tendencies to switch the organization and to seek more opportunities.

Data collection method:

I took data from internet, books, reports, etc.i have collected secondary data which I use as my primary data

The bank should finance its loans in those projects that are meeting the required standard and should avoid the political pressure. The bank should bring forward the new talent as fresh knowledge and education is considered very important to increase the efficiency and production. There is needed to make the outlook situations of branches in those manners that can complete the other modern banks in the banking market. Keeping in view the hard work by the staff members at all levels of management, staff should be given bonus and increment every year. Nepotism should be avoided in this connection There are some employees untrained which decreases the efficiency of the bank branch. All the employees should well train.


Most of the bank employees are sticking to one seat only, with the result that they become master of one particular job and loose their grip on other banking operation. In my opinion each employee should have regular job change. People have to wait for re-cashing their cheques and for paying their School Fees, which is not good for reputation of bank, it should be improved.
