Hello friends, **Auditing means** Auditing is systematic and independent examination of data, state,nt, record, operation and performance (financial or otherwisw)of enterprise for stated purpose. In any auditing situation, the auditor perceives and recognized the proposition before him for examination, collects evidence, evaluates the same and on the basis formulates his judgement which is communicated through his audit report.

Hie Veena, **What is an audit** - An audit is the examination of the financial report of an organisation - as presented in the annual report - by someone independent of that organisation. The financial report includes a balance sheet, an income statement, a statement of changes in equity, a cash flow statement, and notes comprising a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes. - The purpose of an audit is to form a view on whether the information presented in the financial report, taken as a whole, reflects the financial position of the organisation at a given date, for example: 1. Are details of what is owned and what the organisation owes properly recorded in the balance sheet? 2. Are profits or losses properly assessed? - When examining the financial report, auditors must follow auditing standards which are set by a government body. Once auditors have completed their work, they write an audit report, explaining what they have done and giving an opinion drawn from their work. Generally, all listed companies and limited liability companies are subject to an audit each year. Other organisations may require or request an audit depending on their structure and ownership.

As per SA 200, Basic Principles Governing an Audit, issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), an audit is the independent examination of financial information of any entity, whether profit oriented or not, and irrespective of its size or legal form, when such an examination is conducted with a view to expressing an opinion thereon.
