What Are The Duties of An Auditor Under UAE-AML?
Auditing 2021-11-09 From: Mr. Abbas

What is an Audit?

An audit is an impartial examination and evaluation of the accounting records of a company by a statutory auditor. The purpose of the audit is to verify that the records are an accurate and fair  representation of the company’s transactions, and involves obtaining evidence about the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error.

This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the company’s circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the directors; and the overall presentation of the financial statements. 

What Is an Auditor?

An auditor is a person authorized to review and verify the accuracy of financial records and ensure that companies comply with tax laws. They protect businesses from fraud, point out discrepancies in accounting methods and, on occasion, work on a consultancy basis, helping organizations to spot ways to boost operational efficiency. Auditors work in various capacities within different industries.

Hire the top Dubai auditors team and to easily accomplish your company auditing goal. Our auditors in Dubai have 20+ years of working experience in auditing, by using their experience they perform auditing activity effectively and smoothly and deliver the high informative and useful auditing reports that help the business organization.

Key Points:-

  • The main duty of an auditor is to determine whether financial statements follow generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

  • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires all public companies to conduct regular reviews by external auditors, in compliance with official auditing procedures.

  • There are several different types of auditors, including those hired to work in-house for companies and those who work for an outside audit firm.

  • The final judgment of an audit report can be either qualified or unqualified.


Types of Auditors:

  • Internal auditors are hired by organizations to provide in-house, independent, and objective evaluations of financial and operational business activities, including corporate governance. They report their findings, including tips on how to better run the business, back to senior management.

  • External auditors usually work in conjunction with government agencies. They are tasked with providing an objective, public opinion concerning the organization's financial statements and whether they fairly and accurately represent the organization's financial position.

  • Government auditors maintain and examine records of government agencies and of private businesses or individuals performing activities subject to government regulations or taxation. Auditors employed through the government ensure revenues are received and spent according to laws and regulations. They detect embezzlement and fraud, analyze agency accounting controls, and evaluate risk management.

  • Forensic auditors specialize in crime and are used by law enforcement organizations.

The purpose of an audit for your business in Dubai:

The general reason for an audit is to create an independent and impartial view on the information offered in the financial statements, whether that information reveals the true and fair interpretation of the operations of that business or not. For example, the auditors will prove and give their opinion on whether the reported incomes, payments, profit/loss, possessions, obligations, and equity are specified at their true and fair standards or if there is any material misstatement.

Audit requirements for listed companies in Dubai:

In the UAE, the following types of companies must have an audit at any time in the financial year if they are:  

  •  joint-stock companies;
  •  limited liability companies; 
  •  affiliations or partnerships limited by shares;
  •  any other business which is mandatory by any other law. 

Small companies in Dubai are audited when they are required to do so by any supervisory unit or financial institution or to meet any other special condition.


Power and Duties of an Auditor:

  • The auditor has a right to receive information and explanation regarding the matters which are necessary for the performance of his duties. He needs to know whether:

  • The company makes loans and advances against proper security and the terms of these are prejudicial to the interests of the company.

  • Transactions that merely represent a book entry are prejudicial to the interests of the company.

  • In the case of a company that is not an investment or banking company, it sells the assets. They are in the form of shares, debentures, and other securities at a price less than their purchase price.

  • The company shows the loans and advances that it makes as deposits.

  • It charges personal expenses to the revenue account.

  • Every auditor has a right of access to the books of account and vouchers of the company at all times, whether they are at the registered office of the company or at any other place.

  • The auditor of a holding company also has a right of access to the records of the subsidiary company if they are necessary for the purposes of the consolidation.

  • An auditor also has a right to receive notice of any general meeting. He may attend it himself or through his authorized representative who is also qualified to be an auditor. He also has a right to be heard on any part of the business which concerns him.

Challenges That is Faced By The Payroll Accounting Team
Accounting 2021-10-19 From: Mr. Abbas

Payroll is one of the long-term and boring processes which is required for any kind of business. Due to long-term and boring processes, many business owners don’t prefer to spend their time on the payroll process. The payroll process is one of the detailed work that helps the company in comparing the numbers easily and effectively but it’s a time-consuming process. Generally, companies assign this work to HR (Human Resource) or the accounting department to turn down the company cost. If the HR or accounting department has no adequate skills and knowledge about it then they will deliver ineffective results in payroll.


What Is Payroll Accounting?

As per the accounting books, the Payroll Accounting process is an important process to calculate, employees’ compensation analysis, management, and recording.  Payroll accounting is managing and tracking employee compensation like money. In this, we use financial journals to records transactions and cash flow. The payroll entries fall under the ledger to sorts all information of the finance. We add the following things in employees’ compensation.

  1. Gross wages, salaries, commissions, and bonuses.
  2. Employer fringe expenses.
  3. Withholding of salary, insurance premiums, and savings plans.
  4. employee taxes and Withholding employer. 

Common Challenges that are faced by the payroll Accounting Team

  1. Delay in Making Payments - Payroll is a good time-consuming process which is required the best level of accuracy and very less error for the calculation. Many companies delay the payment of the employees because either they have a manual payroll system or have no specialized person to manage payroll accounting. Delay in employee payment demotivates them and affects morale also.

  2. Increase Burden - As we mentioned above that most companies don’t have a specialized department or team for payroll. Then it’s obvious that it is handled by the finance department who is already busy with their primary obligations. The team of finance department can’t able to perform any activity properly and feel pressure and burden of the work. The ultimate result, the payroll activity is not performed perfectly.

  3. Old Or Traditional System - Traditional payroll accounting systems focus on the manual payroll system. In this, we have to deal with lots of papers that make us feel bore.  We also have to meet with lots of errors and also difficult to share any kind of report and information within an organization. It’s also complicated to maintain a backup.

  4. Difficult to Compliance With Laws & Rules - It’s very critical for businesses to comply with government rules and regulations.  It is important for the company to have awareness about the tax law, government rules & regulation so that payroll team or performance calculate the wages and salaries and perform the other related activities on that basis. If the company does irresponsibility in payroll then it may get a large amount of plenty or fine.

  5. Secret And Privacy Problems - The data breach is also another critical issue that is faced by the company. The process of payroll keeps the lost information about company workers and employees like personal details, bank accounts details, etc. If any kind of data is stolen, then the company may get extremely harm like payroll financial malpractices, frauds, etc. An organization should apply the strict privacy policy to avoid this.

As per commercial company federal law No. 2 of 2015. Outside Company jurisdiction has to obey the requirements of foreign investment. It means the company’s 51% ownership will be under resident of UAE.

With the company reference, the ownership aspect would be categorized on the basis of citizenship. It has a proper legal form which means 51% of the company is controlled by the local person. In 2008 from various sectors these investment restrictions were removed.

When we talk about taxation points, There is indirect VAT (value added tax) with a 5% rate imposed. In Dubai, there is no tax that is applied to the employees.
