Question

The following is an auditor?s report prepared in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISAs) issued by the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB): INDEPENDENT AUDITOR?S REPORT To the Shareholders of Les Meridian, Inc. We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Les Meridian, Inc., which comprise the balance sheet as of December 31, 2009, and the income statement, statement of changes in equity and cash flow statement for the year then ended, and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes. Management?s Responsibility for the Financial Statements Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. Auditor?s Responsibility Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement. An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor?s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity?s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity?s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion. Opinion In our opinion, the financial statements give a true and fair view of the financial position of Les Meridian, Inc. as of December 31, 2009, and of its financial performance and cash flows for the year then ended in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. Bergen and Bergen, CPAs February 20, 2010 19 Rue de Bordeaux Marseille, France a. For each of the seven distinct parts of the standard unqualified report prepared in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards in the United States, describe whether key elements of each of those seven parts are present in the audit report based on International Standards on Auditing for Les Meridian?s financial statements. b. Describe elements in the audit report based on International Standards on Auditing that are more extensive than an audit report based on U.S. auditing standards.
