What is a statutory audit?

A statutory audit is a legally required review of the accuracy of a company’s or government’s financial statements and records.

The purpose of a statutory audit is to determine whether an organization provides a fair and accurate representation of its financial position by examining information such as bank balances, bookkeeping records, and financial transactions.
