Business Cycles

Note: This feature is not available in all products.

At the top of the Financial Statement Areas Worksheet, business cycles can be added and deleted for the master template. Business cycles represent the process that initiates, records, processes, and approves transactions and entries that comprise account balances or disclosures.

Once created, the underlying business cycles should then be attached to each financial statement area in the worksheet. You can also reference each business cycle to the relevant Control Matrix and walkthrough documents. Business cycles are also used in the assessment of internal controls.

During the engagement, business cycles and financial statement areas are used when identifying risks and controls. These properties allow the linkage of risks to controls and the assessment of internal controls.

This online help system applies to all CaseWare Audit, Review, and Compilation products. Not all features are available in all products.
