Certain laws and regulations, such as income tax laws, have a direct effect on the amounts and disclosures included in the financial statements. The auditors have a responsibility to design their audit to obtain reasonable assurance of detecting material violations of these laws and regulations.
Many other laws and regulations, such as occupational safety and health laws, do not have a direct effect on the amounts included in the financial statements. An audit carried out in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards is not designed to detect client noncompliance with these other laws.
Although an audit is not designed to provide reasonable assurance of detecting noncompliance with other laws, the CPAs should be aware of the possibility that they have occurred and investigate those identified. When they become aware of noncompliance with laws, the auditors should communicate the situation to the audit committee of the board of directors to remedy the situation and make appropriate modifications to the financial statements.

The completion of an audit of financial statements by a CPA following generally accepted auditing standards and satisfying the CPA provides the basis for expression of an unmodified opinion on the fairness of financial statements. The second sentence of the quotation is in error. Auditors never express an opinion either qualified or unmodified on the fairness of financial statements without first performing an audit.
The audit provides the basis for the expression of an opinion. Such factors as audits made in prior years, confidence in management, and a "quick review" of the current year's financial statements are not an acceptable substitute for appropriate audit procedures. The retention of certified public accountants to perform an audit and express an opinion on the statements does not relieve management of its obligation to give an honest and complete accounting of its conduct of corporate affairs.Auditing relies upon a set of principles to help make an audit an effective and reliable tool in support of management policies and controls.
Audits provide information for organizations to act on to improve their business performance. Integrity: foundation of professionalism. Fair presentation: obligation to report truthfully and accurately. Due professional care: application of diligence and judgment in auditing. Confidentiality: security of information. Independence: basis for impartiality of audit and objectivity of audit conclusions.
