(i) The best-selling computer presentation package has been experiencing a high level of returns owing to suspected software problems

Question 2

You are the audit senior with Howard & Associates and have been assigned to the audit of Beautiful Hair Ltd (Beautiful Hair).

In early 2018, Beautiful Hair acquired a small manufacturer of high-quality organic hair-styling

products, Shimmer Pty Ltd (Shimmer). Beautiful Hair's management had identified that Shimmer's line of products would fit extremely well with the Beautiful Hair business, and organized funding for the acquisition from Regional Bank.

Shimmer uses special formulas to create its product. Only the owner of Shimmer knows the secret ingredients for the formulas. These secret ingredients are apparently documented and held by Shimmer's solicitors.
