A Bank Audit is a formal process in which the services, systems, financial statements, and/or procedures of a bank, credit union, or other financial institution is reviewed and summarized in a report. Every financial service company must undergo audits regularly in order to comply with legal and jurisdictional regulations, laws, and industry standards.

Both internal and external audits are essential to the organization for effective risk mitigation, so it is crucial to ensure that they are done properly. The bank reconciliation process, in particular, helps to identify any financial gaps or discrepancies and should be performed internally at least once a month and once per year by an external auditor. Audits play an imperative role in the banks and the necessity of understanding the procedure has become vital presently. In the present time, banks deal with several products unlike just the basic functions of depositing and giving loans in the earlier time.


What do Bank Auditors do and What are the purposes of Bank Audit?

Bank audits are performed by a kind of accounting specialist called a bank auditor. A bank audit can be done as an internal audit, which is run by an employee of the financial institution, or it can be done as an external audit, which is run by an independent auditor under the direct guidance of a certified public accountant (CPA).

Bank audits serve many purposes. Above all else, the main goal of an audit is to make sure a financial institution is operating in line and above board with all industry and local regulations.

Here are a few common areas and metrics that a bank audit will evaluate within a financial institution:

a) Security and risk management, including operational, strategic, reputation, credit, compliance, and IT and cyber risk

b) Liquidity and monetary flow

c) Financial transactions, including bank wires and automated clearing house (ACH) networks

d) Financial and regulatory reports

e) Whether a financial institution is correctly following its own policies and/or operating in compliance with legal and best-practice standards

f) Whether there is any evidence of law violations, money laundering, fraud, and any other anomalies


Bank auditors will typically spend about three months investigating a bank's financial activities, risk management processes, systems, and procedures to make sure that all related information is complete, timely, and accurate. Once auditors have had the chance to test and evaluate their findings, they can compile a report or audit opinion that outlines any feedback or corrective steps that a bank needs to take in order to remain in compliance. If the audit was done externally, the results will be shared with stakeholders and creditors. The bank audits are important for ensuring the integrity of a financial institution and its practices. Undergoing audits and responding to the feedback generated by audits protects not only a financial institution's management, but also its shareholders, creditors, lenders, and clients. While bank audits can certainly be stressful experiences, they can be made more streamlined through the use of auditing software and related services.
