This time, we will mention different types of audits and this way you will be able to understand which one is indicated for your company.


  • Administrative audit:

It is a process that evaluates the organization as a whole. It focuses on it’s performance at a global level, as well as objectively in each process. It is the complete review of the company’s structure, it’s way of operating, it’s processes, it’s human resources and it’s material resources.

  • Internal audit:
  • The internal audit is the control carried out by the employees of a company to guarantee that the operations are executed in accordance to the general policy of the entity, evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency, and proposing solutions to the problems detected.

    In a simpler way, we can say that it is implemented by members of the company. It is voluntary and its goal is to detect failures, find solutions to problems, and improve its processes.



  • Financial audit:

    This review focuses on the accounts of a company, its accounting and financial data, and is usually done through external auditors. This audit is useful not only for the company being audited, but also for its suppliers, investors, banks and other entities. This audit model is closely linked to legal and government auditing, which we will discuss below.

  • Statutory audit:

    As its name says, it is an examination that is carried out by legal request on the accounts of the companies. The intention of this audit is to verify the patrimonial state and the operations of a company, they must agree with the official records. In these cases, the auditor is usually an external person, who has nothing to do with the organization.


  • Public or government audit:

    This is done directly at the request of a government entity. Its purpose is to evaluate the financial statements of a company, in order to identify any type of irregularity. What is usually trying to find out is whether the company is committing any violations, such as tax evasion, unjustified financing or non-compliance with labor laws.

  • IT audit:

    Today, almost all businesses rely on computer systems. That’s why they must be taken into account when auditing, that the systems require updates and that they be adapted to the context.

    It is related to the information audit.

  • Information audit:

    This audit focuses on obtaining information on equipment and automatic information systems. The security of the systems is evaluated, what information has entered, its procedures, saved files, correct operation of the interfaces, in order to guarantee that the information it processes and stores is reliable.

It can be carried out both by an internal employee and by an external person. A very clear example of an operational audit is when it is executed to find out if the company meets quality standards.
