  • Suppose that the gross margin percentage between 26 and 27 percent for each of the past 4 years but has dropped to 23 percent in the current year.
  • This decline in gross margin should be a concern to the auditor if a decline is not expected.
  • The cause of the decline could be a change in economic conditions.
  • But, it could also be caused by misstatements in the financial statements, such as sales or purchase cutoff errors, unrecorded sales, overstated accounts payable, or inventory costing errors.
