Reserves - Audit Process
Movements in reserves need disclosure in the balance sheet, the loss and profit account, the director's reports or in the notices to the accounts. The auditors must certify proper authorization has been provided for these movements and they must vouch the recording of this movement. The auditors must certify that material amounts of reserves are categorisation under suitable headings. The capital redemption reserve fund and the share premium account need separate recognition and the aggregate amount should be shown also. Provisions must be reviewed to certify that they did not contain secret reserves.
