Concurrent Audit Services

“The operations of financial institutions, particularly banks, and their risk profiles are becoming more and more complex on a daily basis.”

The deregulation of the financial services industry, globalization, and the advancement of various financial technologies are all to blame for this. The risk factor is rising in tandem with the development of banking services. However, the effectiveness of businesses, particularly banks, is determined by their capacity for risk management. Therefore, one must take all the necessary precautions to reduce the risk of fraud and error in order to manage risk and gain control over operations. A successful concurrent audit service is added to the controlling process.

What is a Concurrent Audit?

A timely and methodical examination of the financial transactions of the entity to verify accuracy, authenticity, and compliance with pertinent regulatory requirements is known as a concurrent audit of bank audit. It is done frequently because of the high volume of transactions. The process becomes a little more complicated because concurrent auditing happens as the transactions are taking place.

At CAnest, we make sure that our auditing process is effective by shortening the time between auditing and examination to facilitate quick decision-making and effective risk management.

Objectives of Concurrent Audit

Maintaining the company’s or bank’s periodic financial statements and books of accounts in a timely and accurate manner.

To significantly raise transparency within the company or bank by implementing evidence-based payments.

To guarantee that the company complies with the compliance requirements by properly adhering to the system, rules, regulations, policies, and procedures.


To improve the client’s risk management practises and strategy, internal auditing is carried out. It enables management to improve internal procedures and realise operating efficiency. Additionally, management benefits from internal auditing’s ability to spot, examine, and stop mistakes and irregularities.

On the other hand, concurrent auditing is a methodical auditing procedure to guarantee the conformity, accuracy, and authenticity of the financial transactions. The primary focus is on reviewing 100% of transactions as they take place to find irregularities as soon as possible.

Why are external auditors preferred over internal resources for conducting concurrent audits?

For critical and high value transactions where the inherent risk levels are medium to high, including the risk of fraud, concurrent audits are conducted. In this situation, it is wise to select an external auditor who can guarantee independence and objectivity and who won’t give in to pressure from senior and mid-level management to approve transactions that aren’t deserving of such approval.

Concurrent Audit Scope

Identifying operational inefficiencies and locating the sources of income leakage.
