Hi, A "statutory audit" is a legally required review of the accuracy of a company's or government's financial records. The purpose of a statutory audit is the same as the purpose of any other audit - to determine whether an organization is providing a fair and accurate representation of its financial position by examining information such as bank balances, bookkeeping records and financial transactions. Key learnings from Statutory audit: This involves audit of the final accounts of the company – and is done once in a year. Such audit is considered prestigious, as those who go for such audits are well taken care of by the auditees. This even involves Auditors (including Articles) being taken on sight seeing trips, proper lodging and boarding arrangements, and every questions being properly replied by the Auditee. However this work would often include finalisation of accounts, where the client / auditee would consult the auditor before closing the books. Such statutory audits can be of any Company under the Companies Act or Banks (and Bank Branches), Insurance companies, Electricity Companies etc. Also, duration of statutory audit may differ from organisation to organisation. In some organisation it may take two – three months (which is a normal duration), in others it is done on a continuous basis through out the year, while in still others like bank branches such audit has to be finished in three to five days ! I got opportunity to be involved in statutory branch audits of Nationalised Banks, Insurance Corporations (both Life and Non Life), Regional Rural Bank (that time our firm was one of the Central Statutory Auditor of that RRB). T his was apart from statutory audit work relating to audit of different Private companies and and also a Govt Company.
