How to Create an Audit Flowchart
Audits are an evaluation of a company's financial reports and reporting processes. They are normally carried out by external financial experts. Much like flowcharts, audit diagrams are used to illustrate each step an auditor must go through when evaluating a company's finances.
An auditor's findings may have financial and legal consequences for a company. Thus, audit diagrams must be extremely detailed and accurate. They break down all of the necessary components of an audit and highlight what an auditor must examine throughout the auditing process to ensure that no stone is unturned. Additionally, it allows those within the company to understand what an audit entails, and also what steps they should take to avoid falling foul of the criteria.
