Existence - Audit Process
In the case of tangible assets existence is confirmed through the auditor visually, considering the asset examining and concerned its condition. This is essential in that visual evidence provides the auditor a good thought as to the reasonableness of the value attached to the asset. Whether it is impossible to visually consider the asset concerned, so we have to seem for related evidence for example, whether a company claims to the suitable local authority to own land payment of rates is evidence which the plot of land exists. For assets that cannot be actually examined, independent estimation from third parties would suffice. We have to obtain into account cut off arrangements to make sure about existence is at the balance sheet date and not for any other time.
