3. Risk assessment (When performing an audit, you use risk assessment procedures

to assess the risk that material misstatement exists. This step is very important

because the whole point of a financial statement audit is finding out if the financial

statements are materially correct. How exactly do you assess audit risk?) There are

various steps of risk assessment procedures, but your report will focus mainly:

Recognizing the nature of the company, what’s the company’s market

overview? Who (if anyone) regulates the client? What’s the company’s business

strategy? Computation of income statement and balance sheet ratio, and

Development of common-size financial statements and focus on relevant audit risk

and potential steps to reduce risk (reference link C).
