The auditor’s opinion represents the judgment made after evaluating evidence about the assertions implicit in the financial statements; the phrase “in our opinion” is intended to convey this element of judgment, as opposed to a statement of fact. The conclusion the auditor reaches in most audits of financial statements is that the financial statements “present fairly”…in conformity with general accepted accounting principals”. The opinion illustrated here is technically called an unqualified opinion – that is, it is not qualified by an exception. A less technical term for an unqualified opinion is a “clean” opinion. Although authoritative AICPA literature describes other types of opinions (qualified, adverse, and disclaimer of opinions), the usual expectation is that the auditor will be able to render a positive, unqualified opinion. Anything less is usually undesirable, and often unacceptable either too the client or to regulatory bodies (the SEC will not permit a company listed on the exchange to have an adverse opinion). Qualified Opinion – thee are two reasons for qualifying an opinions: limitations on the scope of the audit and departures from GAAP. Adverse Opinions – an adverse opinion expresses a belief that financial statements are not presented fairly in conformity with generally accepted accounting principals other wise do no present fairly what they purport to present. It is required when an auditor believes that one or more departures from GAAP re sufficiently material to make the statements as a whole misleading. Disclaimer of Opinion – if an auditor does not have enough evidence to form an opinion, the appropriate form of report is a disclaimer of opinion. A disclaimer can result from an inability to obtain sufficient competent evidential matter because the scope of the audit was seriously limited. The AICPA also requires the auditor to evaluate whether there is substantial doubt about the entity’s ability to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time. (This period is not to exceed one year beyond the date of the financial statements.) If substantial doubt exists about the company continuing as a going concern, the auditor adds to the report an explanatory note describing the potential problem (statement on Auditing Standards No. 59).
