In providing control over shipments, SEQ Ltd has pre-numbered ?warehouse removal slips? that are
used for every sale. It is company policy never to remove goods from the warehouse without an
authorised warehouse removal slip. After shipment, two copies of the warehouse removal slip are
sent to billing for the computerised preparation of a sales invoice. One copy is stapled to the
duplicate copy of a pre-numbered sales invoice, and the other copy is filed numerically. In some
cases, more than one warehouse removal slip is used for billing one sales invoice.
In the audit of sales, one of the main concerns is the effectiveness of the controls in ensuring that all
shipments are billed. You have decided to use audit sampling in testing internal controls.

b) State an effective audit procedure for testing the possibility of omitted sales for SEQ Ltd. What is
the sampling unit? (5 marks)
c) State an effective audit procedure for verifying the existence of recorded sales for SEQ Ltd. What
is the sampling unit? (5 marks)
d) Explain why the sampling unit for testing the possibility of omitted sales might differ from the
sampling unit for verifying the existence of recorded sales. (10 marks)
e) Margorie Smith, an accounting graduate and junior member of your audit team for SEQ Ltd,
performed tests of controls and substantive tests of transactions of sales for the month of
September in an audit of SEQ Ltd?s financial statements for the year ended 30 June 2015. Based

decided to significantly reduce her substantive tests of details of balances at year end. Evaluate
this decision. (70 marks).
