Question 2. 2. (TCO B) The following is a portion of a qualified scope and opinion report due to a scope restriction. (Note: A separate report was issued on the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.)

To the shareholders of Fast Times Corporation,

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Fast Times Corporation as of September 30, 2009, and the related statements of income, retained earnings, and cash flows for the past year. These financial statements are the responsibility of the company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

Except as discussed in the following paragraph, we conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

We were unable to obtain audited financial statements supporting the company's investment in a foreign affiliate stated at $1,040,000, or its equity in earnings of that affiliate of $501,000, which is included in net income, as described in Note 14 to the financial statements. Because of the nature of the company's records, we were unable to satisfy ourselves as to the carrying value of the investment or the equity in its earnings by means of other auditing procedures.

Required: Complete the above report by preparing the opinion paragraph. Do not date or sign the report.

(Points : 20)
