Question 1
(A) Analysis of accounting heads
Account receivable
Account – accounts receivable is the amount that is receivable by the company with
regard to the delivering of services and goods. The account receivable ratio is
calculated by measuring the net credit sales with the average receivable time.
Therefore, the account associated with the account receivable is the credit sales
account.
Analysis – it has been analysed from the given case study that all the activities
associated with receivables are performed by the trade receivable clerk only. For
instance, the customer returns the medical equipment, after noting down the reason of
return and completion of documentation, the credit note in favour of the customer is
raised by the trade receivable clerk. Further, the posting of journal as well as receipts
from the debtors are passed on to him, who prepare the bank deposit slip. Therefore
the risk is considered as high.
Audit risk – as all the activities related to the receivables are performed by the trade
receivable clerk, there exist a risk that the receivable may be misappropriated by the
clerk or the receivables may recorded at lesser amount.
Steps of audit for reducing risks – to reduce the risks associated with account
receivable of GPSA various activities related with the receivables must be segregated
among various employees
