Assertions about disclosure

Assertions about disclosure and presentation:

a) Rights and Occurrence and obligations-disclosed transactions and events and other issues have pertained and occurred to the entity.

b) Completeness-all disclosures which should have been involved in the financial statements such have been involved.

c) Understandability and Classification -financial information is suitably existing and disclosures and described are clearly expressed.

d) Valuation and Accuracy -other information and financial are disclosed fairly and at suitable amounts.

The auditor may need the assertions such as described beyond or may express them in a different way given all aspects described beyond have been covered. So for example, the auditor may select to combine the assertions about events and transactions along with the assertions concern account balances. So another one example, there may not be a part assertion related to cutoff of events and transactions where the completeness and occurrence assertions involve suitable consideration of recording transactions in the accurate accounting duration.
