How E-Commerce Affects the Acquisition and Payment Cycle Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.

Information about products is available over

the Internet.

Some companies use extranets which allow

companies to communicate and conduct

business in a secure setting.

Other companies use business-to-business

auctions hosted on the Internet to

negotiate purchases.

  • Understand internal control, and

  • design and perform tests of

Understand internal control
Understand Internal Control Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.

The auditor gains an understanding of internal

control for the acquisition and payment cycle

by studying the client’s flowcharts, preparing

internal control questionnaires, and performing

walk-through tests for acquisitions and cash

disbursements.


Assess planned control risk
Assess Planned Control Risk Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.

Authorization of purchases

Separation of asset custody from

other functions

Timely recording and independent

review of transactions

Authorization of payments


Evaluate cost benefit of testing controls
Evaluate Cost-Benefit of Testing Controls Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.

The auditor identifies the key internal controls

and weaknesses and assesses control risk.

The auditor decides whether substantive tests

will be reduced sufficiently to justify the cost

of performing tests of controls.


Controls and substantive tests of transactions for acquisitions
Controls and Substantive Tests of Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.Transactions for Acquisitions

Recorded acquisitions are for goods and services

received, consistent with the best interests of the

client (existence).

Existing acquisitions are recorded (completeness).

Acquisitions are accurately recorded (accuracy).

Acquisitions are correctly classified (classification).


Attributes sampling
Attributes Sampling Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.

Because of the importance of tests of controls

and substantive tests of transactions for

acquisitions and cash disbursements,

the use of attributes sampling is

common in this audit area.

Sample Size Controls, Substantive Tests of Transactions and Accounts Payable.

Sample sizes for accounts payable tests vary

considerably, depending on many factors.

for the audit of accounts payable than

for accounts receivable.
