Sloan and Spencer Auditing Firm during phase III of Apollo Shoes audit plan, we will focus in two key cycles, which are the following: inventory and warehouse cycle and cash cycle. It is important to understand that are six types of transactions in the inventory and warehouse cycles which are: receive raw materials, store raw materials, process purchase order, and process of goods, store completed goods, and ship completed goods. In addition, it is important understand that cash is chiefly important and exceedingly vulnerable to fraudulent activity this is why an auditor will need to be very careful in assessing the risk of the cash account. In addition, the company cash account is part every cycle except the inventory and warehousing cycle (Arens, 2006). Sloan and Spencer Auditing Firm are responsible to conduct an unbiased and fair audit; this firm will conduct these procedures and tests according to the PCAOB auditing standards.

For example companies have lock on access doors to restricted area for some employees like the store room’s doors and manager offices. * Proper classification of the work in process, completed goods and raw material * Ensure that inventories received are processed daily and included in the receiving reports * Inventory is classified correctly on the tags

* Examine inventory information on the tags and compare with correct inventory for work-in-progress, completed goods and raw material * Evaluate whether the completion percent is recorded on the tags for WIP is realistic * Match purchases with the naming convention used for a sample of purchases * Make sure existing inventory is valid, and all tags are accounted for and are not misplaced * Verify that all inventories are tagged

* Account for all used and unused tags to determine there are no accidental or purposely lost tags * Monitor whether the other locations. * Account for all...
