Upon the completion of auditing the financial records of Apollo Shoes, Inc. it has been confirmed that there has been sufficient evidence obtained to support the audit opinion. There is a concern pertaining to the results of last year’s audit, because the audit was conducted last year by Smith and Smith CPA’s and VP of finance Mr. Unum has requested that we do not contact Smith and Smith. After careful review it has been determined that the issuance of an unqualified audit report would be appropriate. There were errors or deviations discovered during the audit involving financial statements ending December 31, 2006, and 2007, but it was not a departure from GAAP and therefore unnecessary to provide an explanatory paragraph. Because the audit evidence is deemed sufficient, the audit report will follow the standard unqualified audit report. The purpose of this audit report is to primarily communicate the findings on Apollo Shoes Inc. financial statements to safeguard third parties including the stockholders, investors, lenders, and creditors of the client. These third parties usually rely on the report for the assurance that the financial statements of Apollo Shoes Incorporation are fairly presented according to GAAP. The evidence gathered for the audit was accumulated in correspondence with the audit procedure created by and approved by Darlene Wardlaw. Several statistical techniques were used including random sampling. In additions, several analytical procedures were performed including the calculation of common-size financial statements and dollar amounts including percentage changes, comparing Apollo’s numbers with close competitors, and other financial ratios.
