Can a bookkeeper do an audit?

Bookkeepers are not typically qualified to perform audits, as an audit is a more in-depth and comprehensive review of a company’s financial statements and records. Audits are generally performed by certified public accountants (CPAs) who have specialized training and expertise in this area.

However, bookkeepers can play a role in the audit process by providing accurate and complete financial records for the auditor to review. In some cases, bookkeepers may also be asked to assist with the preparation of financial statements or other documents that will be included in the audit.

It is important to note that audits are not required for all businesses, and the need for an audit will depend on the specific circumstances of the business and any regulatory or legal requirements that apply. If you are unsure whether your business needs an audit, it is advisable to consult with a CPA or other financial professional.
