I am getting soooo sick and tired of our auditors. 4 Months and our audit is still not done.
We design our own accounting system. We are an international company, multi-currency, multi-company .... the ZA portion is 100% separated on the financial side.
All our reports and statements are immaculate, next to ZERO errors. FULL supporting transactional details dumped to file of every single transaction and GL entry. Maybe 3 miss classifications and one wrong transaction. Everything else is to the T, as per the book.
We have extreme controls in place, nothing can be questioned they are so damn awesome. Every change control is signed by at least 2 people. ALL expenses have detailed motivation. All stock purchases have detailed motivation and every single stock item is serial number tracked.
Yet .... our auditors increase our yearly figure by 40%!!!!!!!! (i was told behind the scenes they are scared of next year when companies don't need audits)
I get 100-200 transactions I must provide supporting documentation for, of which some require me scanning in 30 pages each!!!!!
What just really really really grated my cheese is we design technology. THIS IS OUR BUSINESS. The retards come moaning about a R23k radio controller we purchased, took apart and reverse engineered for certain aspects of technology which it possessed. Backed with a photo of it taken apart! Plus opensource contributed patch files based off this technology.
I am going MAD. Tearing my hair out....
Audit our damn accounting package and see its impossible for fraud to take place, its impossible for things to be captured incorrectly ... this is why we designed it, this is why we use it. Every single change has a change control, signed off, committed, with FULL history. Stop asking me "how is this calculated" for something you can simply look up in the transaction dump.
I probably have no hair left now.... AAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!
