What Does a Statutory Auditor Do

A statutory auditor is an external auditor appointed by a company to audit its books or other activities as required by law. Generally, this auditor reviews a company’s accounting practices and determines if they meet minimum requirements. Sometimes the statutory auditor is hired by the accounting committee of the board of directors; at other times he or she may be employed directly by the board of directors. It is rare that management of a corporation would hire this auditor.

Normally, the statutory auditor reviews the accounting practices of the corporation each year. This review includes the most important accounting activities, internal controls, and reporting procedures. The auditor's review compares the company’s activities to best practices as found in the country in which the company is located. The auditor must then present a report to the audit committee of the board of directors, or directly to the board of directors.

An auditor works closely with the management of the company to gather information necessary to complete the required work. Each auditor exercises caution in the relationships he or she develops with company management because the statutory auditor must always be considered independent. Some audit committees and boards of directors limit any additional work that the statutory auditor may do for the company in order to ensure the auditor’s independence.

 

 AUDIT OF ACCOUNTS OF BRANCH OFFICE

Where a company, whether a public or a private limited, has a branch office, its accounts should also be audited. The audit of the accounts of branch office can be done either by:

  • The company’s auditor
  • By any other person who is qualified to act as the company’s auditor

However, if the branch is situated in a country outside India, a person who is duly qualified to act as auditor of the branch in accordance with the laws of that country, can also be appointed as auditor of branch.
