INTRODUCTION

1.1            BACKGROUND OF STUDY

In the past, when audit or auditing is not well known, many account used the opportunity to look public companies because there was no one to examine and give evidence to what they have done, but this has changed since everybody has know known the importance of audit department.

          So this chapter examines the regulatory framework for enforcing accountability in the ministry of fiancé Enugu state and Infact in the entire civil service.

          In finance management, this is to account that is to furnish a reckoning (to someone) of none received and paid out and audit is seen as an exercise which is carried out in order to lend credence to statement prepared by directors of the company (who are not the owners) for use by the owners of business (shareholders), the creditors, the employees, the government, etc.

          What accountability does is to provide answers related to stewardship. What why whom, whose, which and how.

vWhat is to be accounted for

vWhom is to account for it

vTo whom should the account be submitted

vDoes responsibility go with commensurate authority

vWhy should accounts be rendered?

These questions are necessary to satisfy a host of interest such as policy makers, public officers, social scientists, the general public audits, on the other hand attempt to state that the account (or accountability) is satisfactory.

The agreement of the trail balance, and the preparation of account I Infact, to what may be described as “accountancy work”, but nowadays a very large part of a professional accountants work is that of auditing.

          The difference between accountancy and auditing is not clearly understood by many business men, it being thought that if accounts are prepared by a professional accountant, be necessary guarantee their accuracy.

          If an accountant is instructed merely to prepare account from a set of books the work involved would be that of agreeing the tried balance, and thereafter preparing the profits and loss account and the balance sheet.

          He would be acting simply as an expert accountant, and not in any way as an auditor.

          The difference between accountancy and auditing was an important factor in the case of Apfel V Annan doctor and company.

          Other difference include that accountant is employed by the management on a salaries basis, the auditor is responsible to the shareholders and engaged on a contract basis.

          An audit is not conceded with writing up of any books of accounts or preparing profit and loss account and balance sheet or any other statement of account.

          An audit begins only when the statement of account is ready and handed to the auditor.

1.3            DEFINITION OF TERMS
