In the past I've always ordered an ACH Audit Workbook every year due to the changes for that year. The board has decided we need to look at expenses closer and I'm running into management not willing to purchase the new workbook. What doesn everyone else do? Do you use the same workbook ea. year and hope you're including any changes that might have occured?
I am conducting an ACH audit at the moment. I agree that the workbook is not a big expense. The audit steps change a bit from year-to-year and I feel good that it limits the risk that I might miss something.
We order an audit workbook and an ACH Rules book every year and pass the cost on to the client. The audit workbook is pretty cheap...I agree that your company seems to be a little unreasonable if they are worried about $55. If you are an external auditor, I would suggest passing the cost onto the client. If you are internal, I guess that ends up being a cost/benefit decision. What risk of noncompliance and potential cost are they willing to accept for the benefit of $55?
