INTRODUCTION

An audit is the independent examination of, and expression of
opinion on the financial statements of enterprises by an auditor.  In pursuance of this objective, he may disclose defalcations and irregularities, which are capable of impairing the truth and fairness of the financial statement.
 In recent years there has been considerable debate over the extent of the statutory auditors responsibility for the detection of fraud.  This has been stimulated by the continued uncertainty over the extent of the auditors liability to third parties for negligent audit work.  It is obvious that failure to detect a major fraud may lead to a loss for the client or some third party to whom a duty of care is owned.  The important question is low far do the auditor’s responsibilities.
 The auditing profession had always hold tight to the opinion that the primary responsibility for both prevention detection of fraud and other irregularities rest with management.  The auditor’s duties do not require him specially to search for fraud unless required by stature or the specific term of his engagement.  In accordance with normal practice, audit will be planned primary to enable us to express our professional opinion, and auditor merely obliged to plan his work and design his procedures so that he has a reasonable chance of detecting those, illegalness which might impair the truth and fairness of the financial statement.
