Hire Financial Auditors

A financial auditor is a professional who reviews or audits a company's financial position by looking into its statements, documents, data and accounting entries. They examine the financial policies and practices of a company, review the company’s accounts and assess risks. A certified financial auditor is a professional who has been certified to carry out financial audits for organizations.

What Financial Auditors Do?

A financial auditor studies the organization and understands its structure, policies and procedures to plan a financial audit. Their main responsibility is to review the financial statements of the organization and check whether or not the organization is financially stable and operating at its optimum level. They do this by reviewing different financial statements of the organization like financial reporting systems, account balances, cash flow statements, income statements, balance sheets and tax returns. They use financial analysis to evaluate accounting and financial reports by testing the documentation of transactions that have been provided. Based on their analysis, financial auditors suggest changes to improve the organization’s overall financial performance.

Financial auditors can either be external auditors or internal auditors. External financial auditors provide auditing services to organizations on a short-term contractual basis whereas internal financial auditors work independently within the organization to provide objective financial and operational audits.

Financial auditors are seen across industries and are typically associated with accounting firms and consultancies, multi-national companies and government and non- government institutions. There are also a number of certified financial auditors who offer online freelance services and are looking to get freelance projects online.

If you want to hire a financial auditor, make sure your freelancer can:

  • Examine company accounts and financial records.

  • Inspect account books and accounting systems for efficiency and use of accepted accounting procedures.

  • Verify assets and liabilities.

  • Collect and interpret figures.

  • Analyze financial statements.

  • Collect, analyze and summarize data and predict trends.

  • Assess risks and internal controls by identifying areas of non-compliance.

  • Document all internal processes within an audit.

  • Prepare monthly, quarterly and annual statements, along with budgets.

Qualifications of a Financial Auditor

It is ideal that your freelancer has the following skills:

  • Professional education in Accounting or other related fields

  • Certification from a recognized accounting body for certified financial auditors

  • Proficiency in various computer programs related to accounting

  • Certification as a certified public accountant or CPA

  • Skills in time management and task completion

  • Strong analytical skills

  • Excellent mathematical abilities

Other than the above mentioned financial auditor skills, it is most important for a financial auditor to be trustworthy and maintain discretion.

Benefits of Freelance Financial Auditors

Freelance financial auditors are external to the firm and thus the audit conducted is free from any bias or prejudice and is not influenced by an employee or management of the organization. They are well-versed with the changes in the accounting principles and ensure that they carry out the audit within the latest standards.
