INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT TO THE SHAREHOLDERS OF FINANCE HOUSE P.J.S.C

Our audit approach

Overview

Key audit matters

  • Valuation of unquoted investments
  • Impairment of loans and advances and Islamic financing and investing assets

As part of designing our audit, we determined materiality and assessed the risks of material misstatement in the consolidated financial statements. In particular, we considered where the directors made subjective judgments; for example, in respect of significant accounting estimates that involved making assumptions and considering future events that are inherently uncertain. As in all of our audits, we also addressed the risk of management override of internal controls, including among other matters, consideration of whether there was evidence of bias that represented a risk of material misstatement due to fraud.

We tailored the scope of our audit in order to perform sufficient work to enable us to provide an opinion on the consolidated financial statements as a whole, taking into account the structure of the Group, the accounting processes and controls, and the industry in which the Group operates.
