The beginning of the year also marks the beginning of the busier time for us at the NAO, as both interim and final audit visits start to loom.

There will come a time in every auditor’s career where you need to leave the office to go visit the client. It is the most valuable time on the job as you see the client, the people, the situation and get to interact face-to-face.
The NAO is slightly special in that many of its clients are more than a couple of hours away, and thus necessitate staying over.

The NAO is currently part of the UN’s Board of Auditors for a six-year term with the Chinese and Tanzanian audit offices, which gives trainees exciting opportunities to do UN work. I was with a team of three others, two of whom had just returned the previous week from another UN office in New York. more… Fondue, chocolate and audit: Geneva calling

However, what you may not necessarily know is what that work entails – which is where the audit cycle comes into play. This post will look at just the financial audit side. more… What is… an audit cycle?
