Subject: Understanding the Revenue Cycle

I’ve attached a Sales internal control questionnaire from another engagement that I think you can use for Apollo.   You may want to talk to Karina Ramirez to get answers to the questions.

1. Complete the ICQ for Apollo.   For “yes” answers, add a comment stating which department and clerk performs the function. For “no” answers, describe the possible “errors” or “frauds” that could occur because of the control weakness.
2. I’ve started a flowchart and listed some strengths and weaknesses, but had to leave before I could finish it.   See if you need to add any more strengths and/or weaknesses that you find from the ICQ and narrative descriptions of the revenue cycle.

Subject: Revenue and Collection Cycle Documentation

I have excerpted from our workpapers a description of Apollo’s Accounting and Control Systems over the Revenue/Collection Cycle and Purchasing/Cash Disbursements.   I’ve also gave a copy of a flowchart of sales transaction processing to Darlene.

We have not developed one for the purchasing cycle yet, but we plan to do so once your audit is ended and our assistance is no longer necessary.  

Hope you find the info useful.   Let me know if you have any questions.
