Audit systems, Financial Management

Enron did not manages its trade account receivable in significant manner that made huge financial loss for the organizations. Hence, the management faced biggest fraud due to the failure of audit systems. This scandal did tack place due to the gap in the accounting systems of general accepted accounting principles. This scandal had been done by the auditor of the company by that the organization did not retain its balance sheet and it increased the level of confusion in the mind of investors and shareholders. The auditors did not able to present income level of the company, cash flow up, the values of asset inflation along with the liabilities off the books that reduced the transparency in the auditing system of the company (Greene, 2013). On the other hand, the auditors met with the top management of the company in limited time that also restricted them by taking each consideration related to regular checking about the condition of trading accounts.

The chief financial officer of Enron along with other executives misled the audit committee members and board of directors that increased the high-risk accounting practices that was very important for the auditors to reduce the risk. The organization also not disclosed its hearing process to the investors. The fraud was uncovered by Bethany McLean's in a meeting with the financial officers of the company. She pointed out that how the organization of Enron could manage its stock value in the market at that time, when its earning is below 55 times from earnings (Greene, 2013). She also commented that how the management of Enron provide the information to the investors and shareholders of the company related to the earning of the company at that time when the company is earning low revenues.
