THE AUDITOR AS AN INDISPENSIBLE PART OF A PROFITABLE BUSINESS ORGANISATION

ABSTRACT
It is believed that internal control is a tool at managements, disposal to curb fraud. Despite the internal control in today’s companies, management has not been able to effectively curb fraud as we can see from media reports filled with news of financial fraud. We therefore need to know why this system has failed tremendously. Also, since the report of fraud has grown to almost an uncontrollable rate. It has become proper to think of a more economical, effective and efficient way of curbing it. This nay of course read the hands of internal exports, the auditor. In which case, the primary aim of an audit has to include detecting and prevention of fraud.
