9–25 When the client's book value falls outside the interval, the auditor may decide to (1) increase the sample size of the test, (2) perform other audit tests of the account, or (3) work with the client's personnel to locate other misstated items in the account. Monetary Unit Sampling (MUS)in audit is an example of PPS sampling with money value of transactions as size measure.

If repetition is allowed it is called Probability Proportional to Size With Replacement (PPSWR) Sampling. MUS is actually PPS -Systematic. Audit sampling is the application of audit procedures to less than all the items within a population of audit relevance such that all sampling units have a chance of being selected, in order to provide the auditor with a reasonable basis on which to draw conclusions about the entire population.

Readers should note that a sampling unit is. An auditor selects a certain number of records to estimate how many times a specific feature will show up in a population.

Emphasizing the use of sampling in the audit of financial statements by external as well as internal auditors, this book presents technical sampling material within the context of the auditing risk model.

This edition features new sampling software with each book, new integration of international standards, and updated coverage of terminology and standards.

The Guide to Audit Sampling course explores the circumstances under which sampling can be used, how to properly set the parameters for sampling, determine the correct sample size, and examine the results.

Following the guidance in this course can improve one’s audit efficiency, while avoiding incorrect judgments regarding client misstatements. Audit sampling is the application of an audit procedure (test of control or substantive testing) to less than % of the items within an account balance or class of transactions for the purpose of drawing a general conclusion about the account balance or the entire group of transactions based on the characteristics detected in the sample.

Using statistical sampling is very important to help the auditor to manage and control the audit’s risk.

According to the AICPA (in SAS No. AU-C Section ), audit sampling is defined as “The selection and evaluation of less than percent of the population of audit relevance such that the auditor expects the items selected (the sample) to be representative of the population and, thus, likely to provide a reasonable basis for conclusions.
