Statutory Audit



The Chinese laws require that all foreign investment companies and local limited liability companies to be audited annually by CPAs. The main purpose of the statutory audit, with the exception of meeting needs of investors, is to facilitate the annual examination with various governmental departments. The filing deadlines set by the departments vary from April 30 to June 30. Normally April 30 is regarded as the deadline for the statutory audit, which means that all statutory audits have to be performed during the four months from January to April.

When performing an audit, the CPA shall observe the Chinese Independent Auditing Standards (CIAS) promulgated by the Chinese Institute of Certified Public Accountants (CICPA). The objective of statutory audit is for the CPAs to express an opinion whether the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the company’s financial position as at year end, the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year, in accordance with the requirements of both the Accounting Standards for Business Enterprises and the Accounting Regulations for Business Enterprises.
