The Risks - Management Responsibility and the Role of Internal Audit in Risk Assessment
Keywords:internal audit, internal audit function, risk, management
The entity's management is responsible for the prevention and detection of fraud and errors, by monitoring the internal control system and the financial accounting system.
Internal audit reduces the risk of fraud and error, but cannot eliminate it. Thus, the internal auditors will look for sufficient and conclusive audit evidence to highlight that there have been no significant frauds and errors in the financial reporting or, if they occur, their effect will be properly reflected in the financial statements and the entity's management will apply the measures regarding the declaration and correction of the identified errors.
