ASSIGNMENT 2

AUDIT CASH BALANCE


APPLE BLOSSOM COLOGNE COMPANY
The Apple Blossom Cologne Company has two bank checking accounts. The general
account (account number 101) is with the Big City National Bank, Main at Michigan
Avenue, Chicago, Illinois. It is used for ordinary cash receipts and disbursements
transactions. The payroll account (102) is with the Second National Bank, 615
Lakeway Road, Chicago, Illinois. The payroll account is not an imprest account, and
transfers between it and the general account occur frequently. All transfers are
journalized through the cash receipts journal.
SUBSTANTIVE AUDIT PROCEDURES FOR CASH BALANCE
Lillian Stockton, the treasurer, prepares monthly bank reconciliations for both bank
accounts. You obtained from Don McKenna a copy of the reconciliations for each
bank for the month of December, 2011. You also obtain from Don selected portions
of the cash receipts and cash disbursements journals. You have received from the
banks the confirmations and cut-off bank statements that were requested January 3,
2012. The cut-off bank statements cover the period from January 1 to January 14,
2012.
On December 31, 2011, you were on the clients premises for the purpose of
counting any undeposited cash receipts and the petty cash fund at year-end. The
cashier, Pam Lewis, has charge of the petty cash fund. You obtain control of it,
counted it, recorded your count, and returned it to Pam, obtaining a receipt for its
return. Pam also prepares the company bank deposits. However, on December 31,
2011, she did not prepare a deposit, so you obtained from her the undeposited cash
receipts, listed your count, and returned them to her, obtaining a receipt for their
return. Working papers for these counts are included in the working paper schedule
provided.
The cut-off bank statement, along with items clearing the cutoff period, which you
requested from Big City National Bank, are shown in Exhibit 1. The cutoff statement
and the clearings for the Second National Bank are shown in Exhibit 2. A selected
portion of the cash receipts journal is shown in Exhibit 3, while a selected portion of
the cash disbursements journal is shown in Exhibit 4.
The following is a listing, by working paper index, of the working papers (a)
prepared for you by the client, (b) obtained directly from the banks, and (c)
prepared by you when counting petty cash and undeposited receipts. They are
included for your use in this assignment.

Instructions:
1. Write down the audit program to detect the following potential error or
irregularities involving cash receipts, disbursements, and balances:
Cash Receipts:
1. Cash receipts may have been deposited but not recorded in the cash
receipts journal.
2. Cash receipts may have been recorded but not deposited in the bank.
3. Cash receipts may have been credited to the wrong account.
4. The amount of cash receipts may have been incorrectly recorded.
5. Cash receipts may have been recorded in the wrong accounting period.
6. Transfer of cash among bank accounts may have been incorrectly
recorded.
Cash Disbursements:
1. Unauthorized disbursements may have occurred.
2. Disbursements may have been recorded but the check not mailed.
3. Disbursements may have been made but not recorded in the cash
disbursements journal.
4. The disbursement may have been debited to the wrong account.
5. Disbursements may have been recorded in the wrong accounting period.
6. Disbursements related to interbank transfers may have been incorrectly
recorded.
Cash Balances:
1. The bank reconciliation may have been purposefully misfooted to cover a
defalcation.
2. The reconciliation may include fictitious deposits in transit.
3. Outstanding checks may have been omitted from the reconciliation to
conceal a cash shortage.
2. Begin with the list of assertions below and add others as you think appropriate,
then write your audit program to test those assertions.
1. The amount of cash is not materially more than the amount shown on the
balance sheet.
2. All cash has been recorded.
3. Cash is correctly shown as a current asset.
4. No cash is restricted to a noncurrent use.
3. Study the prior years working papers, paying attention to the use of tick marks
to indicate your audit procedures and the system of cross-referencing among
working papers. Gather evidence as necessary from the exhibits, the direct bank
mailings, the client-prepared schedules, and your own observations to perform
your audit work in the cash area. Prepare schedule A-5 in order to analyze the
propriety of interbank transfers.
