The Auditing section provides the facility to Audit the required transactions. The Auditor can check all the transactions or audit only selective transactions by applying the necessary sampling method. Auditing is divided into the following:

Verification of Vouchers : All the transactions for the Audit Year will be visible from this report. The auditor has an option to apply the recommended Sampling methods and do the Auditing for the Sampled Vouchers or audit all Vouchers.

Related Party Transactions : The auditor can identify the Ledger Master as Related Parties based on the information given by the Client and all the transactions belonging to the Related Parties will be available for scrutiny.

Forex Transactions : This report list down all the transactions involving Multi Currency and provides the option to conduct Audit.

Micro, Small, Medium Enterprises (MSME) Transactions : Auditor can check and audit the Outstanding Payments for the parties identified as MSME’s.

Salary / Wages Payments : Auditor can check the Head Count details and Salary Payment details for all the employees and an option to audit these transactions is provided.
