Fairness -  Auditing

The word fair can have the following meanings:  on the other hand clear, plain and distinct and on the one impartial, equitable and simple.  When fair is required in an accounting text, all can be considered relevant.

Whenever we ask ourselves the questions-fair to whom? So it seems which we should be fair to the user of the accounts in such the user of the accounts has certain expectations.  He expects which accounts will comply along with the Companies Act utilization and he expects also which the accounts will conform to commonly accept the IAS and accounting principles, thus whether we can convince the expectations of the user it can be felt such we have been fair.  Therefore this leads us to relevance, or we say as, the accounts must provide a view which is relevant to the uses of the user.  Therefore it will be expected that the accounts will prove the resources requirement in the company, the changes in the resources and claims against those resources and claims over a period of time.  The accounts report on historical events also.  Therefore they are not intended to be needed for decision making hence they are regularly required for this purpose.
