Challenges Of Financial Audit - The Impact Of Introducing Unique Regulation Of Financial Markets In Romania
The theme of our research is related to the new type of relationship between financial audits (statutory) and unique regulation of financial markets in Romania.The Romanian authorities have decided as from 2013 regulation of financial markets, capital market, insurance market and private pensions market to achieve by a single entity, this situation will also lead to a number of challenges in the relationship between the auditor and the new regulatory regime. The main elements of our study are: the relationship between the audit committee and regulatory authority; quality of financial reporting for financial market entities. The auditor plays an important role in financial markets because it certifies the financial statements in accordance with European Union practice . It is also interesting to note potential interference that can occur in single regulation between compliance audit and financial stability and return on investment between performance audit and financial markets.In this case, financial regulation can coexist with compliance audit. EU legislation recommends that the auditor discuss with the audit committee the quality and acceptability of the financial reporting process.This recommendation is what should constitute a possible consensus to be highly unlikely between audit committees would align auditors in financial reporting disputes with management financial entities. In this regard, auditors should identify the factors we consider important in determining the quality of financial reporting. .We conducted this research in an effort to identify the possible divergence between the type of regulations that can emit single regulatory authority and the audit process. New regulator will operate on two levels, issue general regulations apply to all three categories of financial markets, capital market, insurance market and private pensions market, but in the same time and in greater extent will issue specific regulations of each market in part. We want to identify the extent to which audit the entities in these markets will be influenced by these changes. Interest is our largest to determine whether the audit can identify any changes in the new regulatory requirements on quality of financial statements.Our research results show the high importance of the audit committee in ensuring the high quality of financial reporting in the financial markets and seeks to identify potential points of conflict between audit conservatism and unique market regulation.
