    Hi tutor, Here is a question. The scenario does not say (you are the auditor for the company)It just give a general scenario. Do I just give general answers or do I say, I will do this and this? Not certain when to use the words.( I will)
    Thank You.

    I think there has been a change in style of answers and fewer now use “I would…”. However, I don’t think it really matters. Personally I find the ‘I would…’ approach can be very useful in getting you into the scenario, imagining yourself there, and answering in more detail than you otherwise would have.

    If you find that approach is effective for you, I would use it.

    I have a problem of answering questions in relation to assertion, do we apply them or use them for testing or what?

    You have to find evidence to support each assertion. So, you don’t just say a figure in the FS is ‘right’ , you are saying that each assertion it makes is ‘right’: ownership, existence, valuation etc.
