Details:

The BakFirn Corporation, a publicly traded firm, has

BakFirn Corporation manufactures specialty construction tools. The tools are
used in the unique construction of homes, warehouses, and multiunit
dwellings. The prices range from $1,000 to $5,000 per unit.
During the audit, the audit team has determined the risk
assessment of the client. Consequently, the audit has to respond to the
assessed risks of material misstatement at the financial statement and
assertion levels. The YOUCPA audit team has asked you, the auditor, to
prepare a list of actions that you will take to assess the audit risk.
