SCHEDULE A-PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT There are few procedures to be followed during the audit work for this section.Firstly, obtain a summary schedule of each significant class of property, plant andequipment to satisfy disclosure requirements, showing opening balances, additions,disposals, revaluations and closing balances. Ensure that the property, plant andequipment exist and are genuine assets of the business and are beneficially owned by thebusiness and any restrictions, pledges or liens on the property, plant and equipment areidentified and adequately disclosed in the financial statements. At the same time, we haveto prepare fixed assets schedule as to attachment for this section. Test the mathematical accuracy, agree opening balances to prior period workingpapers and agree closing balances to the nominal ledger and investment ledger wheremaintained. Vouch against invoices, contract notes, and agreements for any additions ordisposals. Confirmation of documents needed from the client. Ensure that all property,plant and equipment are included in the balance sheet, income from investments iscomplete and gains or losses on realization of property, plant and equipment are correctlystated. In additions, ensure the property, plant and equipment are properly disclosed andcapitalized. Ensure that property, plant and equipment are accurately stated at cost orrevalued amounts and provided against where necessary. In this audit firm we normally do not conduct physical verification of the assets toensure its existence. It is only applicable to a very large amount of assets. Then, checkcalculation of the rates of depreciation to ensure that the rates used are reasonable and consistent with previous years. If the assets are charged, ensure that the particular chargeis contained in the register of charges and relevant forms are filed. Where possible, obtaina copy of the relevant forms.
