Fraudulent use of corporate credit cards will be minimized by what type of control?
Subjecting credit card charges to the same expense controls as those used on regular company expense forms.
Credit card charges should be controlled in much the same manner as expense accounts and other expense reports, including use of limitations on specific kinds of expenditures. These charges should be compared with supporting documentation, such as receiving reports and invoices.
What activity most likely would detect whether payroll data were altered during processing
Using test data to verify the performance of edit routines.
The test data approach uses the computer to test the processing logic and controls within the system and the records produced. The auditor prepares a set of dummy transactions specifically designed to test the control activities that management claims to have incorporated into the processing programs. The auditor can expect the controls to be applied to the transactions in the prescribed manner. Thus, the auditor is testing the effectiveness of the controls over the payroll data.
