Accountant’s Opinion

July 19, 2014  |     |     |   0 Comment

An accountant’s opinion is the report provided by an accountant after the accountant has analyzed a business’ financial books and records by following generally accepted auditing and accounting standards.

This can sometimes be necessary in high-dollar value website purchases. The buyer may hire an accountant to perform an audit of the website business’ books and deliver an opinion.

The opinion is classified as either a qualified or unqualified opinion. This depends on the scope of the audit and the accountant’s confidence in the information and data that he reviewed.

A qualified opinion includes information that the accountant could not directly confirm due to limitations in the scope of the audit.
