I’m working on a accounting writing question and need an explanation to help me learn.QUESTION 1The auditors are finalizing the audit of a company. The audit highlights a memorandum that indicates that the company has failed to maintain proper books and records. This is because there is no non-current asset register and it was not possible to draw up a register, as some of the invoices were missing. The director is furious that the audit firm says this makes it impossible to give an unqualified audit opinion. He says that the audit firm prepared the accounts and therefore it is simply a matter of the auditors’ incompetence.Required:a.
