Inside Auditing

Auditors provide services essential to the success of all types of organizations, ensuring efficient financial operations, accurate public records and compliance with state, federal and international taxation. Auditors may work for government agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service. However, many also provide auditing services for businesses through their accounting departments or for individuals through private firms. External auditors review clients' accounts and report any indiscretions. Alternately, internal auditors make certain that their employers' financial records are filed properly.
