The auditor ia auditing accounts receivable for a long-time client that has good internal controls. The auditor has assessed control risk as low and assigns a control risk assessment of 20 % and a desired audit risk of 5 %. Other factors considered by the auditor: 1. The auditor will not be performing any other substantive audit procedures. 2. Inherent risk, by firm policy, is assessed at 1.00. 3. Client book value is $9,325,000. 4. Tolerable misstatement is assessed at $215,000. 5. Previous audits have shown an expected error of $45,000 over-statement is reasonable. REQUIRED: a- Calculate the detection risk b- Calculate (and show the calculation) of the sample selection interval. c- Assume the auditor rounds the sampling interval down to the next nearest $5,000. Calculate the approximate largest sample size the auditor would expect. d- The auditor found the following differences when performing the audit work: BOOK VALUE AUDITED VALUE AUDIT DIFF 32,500 15,000 -17,500 was billed to wrong Co. for error in transcription. 55000 20000 - Merchandise was returned before year end, but credit was not recorded until next period. 125000 $??? Incurred 60000 105000 85000 -Dispute on product quality disputed for 6 months but customer satisfied. 500 400 -Credit was supposed to be issued, but was not. REQUIRED: a- Calculate the most likely error and the upper error limit for accounts receivable b- Discuss the audit implications, that is, whether the audit work supports book value or whether additional audit work should be recommended, and, if so, the nature of the audit work.
