What does an external auditor do?


Answer by  patti (29325)

An external auditor is one from the outside. She/he isn't an employee of the business being audited and, as such, is not vested and is assumed to be completely objective.

An external auditor is hired essentially as an outside contractor to a company to evaluate the integrity of the company's financial reporting. This evaluation is completed through inquiry of those within the company, confirmation with parties external to the company, direct observation, and sampling techniques.
