A financial audit questionnaire is used to check the financial reports of an organization or individual and verifying if all the information is accurate and or not. Some financial auditing is done by a company’s own in-house auditors while others may hire external experts to do that.

By answering the questions in a financial audit questionnaire, the respondent gives information about all the different activities of his company and the numbers must be mentioned clearly and honestly. Proper financial auditing is important for effective financial management and also prevents fraud.
