Note: This feature is not available in all products.

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.

During the audit 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.
