5.0 BRIEF METHODOLOGY PROPOSED FOR


PERFORMING THE ASSIGNMENT

Expression of Interest for Appointment as Consultants to Femab Properties Limited By Balogun Badejo Cons. Ltd
Page 16
When appointed as your consultants on this project, summary of the methodologies to be
employed are as detailed below:

5.1 Preliminaries:
Upon our appointment as Consultants, we shall carry out the following:

 Forward our Letter of Acceptance signifying our acceptance of the appointment


 Issue Letter of Engagement which shall spell out the terms of engagement
 Hold meeting with the members of the Board or Top officials (if necessary)
 Hold meetings with the Management Team to discuss issues concerning the project
 Issue our Audit Planning Memorandum

Consequently, we shall obtain necessary background information and documentation for the
purpose of the assignment.

Such background information and documentation shall include but not limited to:
1. Femab Properties Limited’s Profile which will contain amongst others: History,
Establishment, Head Office, Other Offices, Board, officials, Top Management staff, etc
2. Bank Statements from all the Banks covering the period under review.

5.2 Work Plan and methodology


General procedures
We shall carry out pre-engagement meeting/visits in order to clearly understand the
organizational structure the relationship with other companies. This will enable us to
know the structure in place and plan our staff strength and mix for the audit field
work.
Our activities when appointed shall include the following:

1. Application of unapproved and unagreed interest rate:


Sometimes, the rates and fees used for debit interest/fees on facilities availed might be
inconsistent with the laid-down monetary policies and might not be as agreed with the
bank(s). It is sometimes a fraction of percentage less for credit interest or a fraction of
percentage more for debit interest. The implication is that the account holder is denied
of his/her legitimate funds while the bank rakes in more profit by way of excess
charges.

2. Application of COT (Commission-On-Turnover):


COT is one of the major means through which banks overcharge customers especially
the high networth and volume accounts. There are about six classes of transactions
Expression of Interest for Appointment as Consultants to Femab Properties Limited By Balogun Badejo Cons. Ltd
Page 17
exempted from COT charges but most of the banks do otherwise. Sometimes, because
of the volume of transactions, you might have negotiated COT rate with your bank. In
order to increase their COT earnings, the bank use rates higher than agreed rate
without informing customers.

3. Application of undue excess/default charge:


Credit (overdraft, excess overdraft, finance, lease, etc) are facilities given to proven
customers to facilitate and promote their businesses beyond their financial
capabilities. It is mandatory that accounts running on one/more facilities must attract
debit interest. In some banks and for some account holders, the stipulated limit does
not mean the customer cannot exceed the limit but the amount by which the limit is
exceeded (called excess/default) would attract a higher debit interest rate. Contrary to
monetary policies, when limit is exceeded some banks calculate interest using excess
rate on both limit and excess thereby overcharging the customer on the limit.

4. Application of unauthorised fees on facilities:


There are fees allowed to be charged on bank facilities. These fees have rules and
regulations guiding their applications, computations and frequencies. Most times,
some of the banks violates the rules and regulations on fees by applying wrong
procedures and frequencies.

5. Inappropriate management of BAs and CPs:


BA (Bankers Acceptance) and CP (Commercial Papers) are instruments used by banks
to avail credit facilities to credit-worthy customers. Inappropriate BA and CP
parameters like interest rates, tenor/duration termination, fees, rollover differentials,
etc could lead to huge amount of overcharge on the account absorbing the
fees/charges.

6. Foreign Exchange Sales, Bidding and Rates:


Another major means of overcharge on facility accounts is exchange rates applied on
some foreign exchange transactions. Several times, the banks apply unauthorised
exchange rates on forex transactions thereby short-changing the customers

7. Application of backdated/postdated value/effective dates:


Backdating of debit transaction is a situation in which a withdrawal is given a
value/effective date earlier than the transaction date. An example is when a
withdrawal that took place on Friday 10th January, 2003 is said to be effective (i.e.
having value date on Monday 6th January, 2003. Postdating of credit transaction is a
situation in which a lodgment is given a value/effective date later than the supposed
value date. An example is when a lodgment that took place on the Monday 13th
January, 2003 and supposed to have value on 16th January, 2003 is given 20th
January, 2003.
The monetary policies states clearing period for every class of transaction thereby
enabling customers to determine appropriate value/effective date of their transactions.
Expression of Interest for Appointment as Consultants to Femab Properties Limited By Balogun Badejo Cons. Ltd
Page 18
Backdating/postdating of value dates is another major means of bank overcharge as it
imposes undue debit interest on customer and reduces credit interest due to
customers.

8. Inclusion of unknown cheques:


This is a situation in which a cheque with the same human-interpreted serial number
with yours and owned by another customer was debited into your account and account
of the owner thereby making an unauthorised withdrawal from your account. This
situation is very dangerous when your account is having high confirmation limit and
continuous overdraft facility because you may not know when an unknown cheque is
withdrawing funds from your account.

9. Application of undue VAT charges:


By regulations, not all charges are VATable but the banks do otherwise. Example, VAT
is not chargeable on interest/overdraft charges.

10. Statement/Cash book Reconciliation:


We shall reconcile the Bank Statements with the Company’s Cash Book. For situations
where one transaction on statement of account is splitted into two/more on the cash book
or vice versa, we shall employ manual match function to enable users match the
transactions.

Upon completion of the matching exercise, we shall produce the following reports:

a. Reconciliation statement
b. Bank statement listing
c. Cash book listing
d. Transactions matched
e. Cash book unmatched transactions
f. Bank Statement unmatched transactions

5.3 Conclusion

We recognize that all methodologies to be adopted in carrying out the assignment may not
have been spelt out fully in this Expression of Interest (EOI) while other approaches and
methodology will be contingent on-the-job and situations that may arise during the work.
The above is therefore the summary of what we intend to do if appointed by Femab
Properties Limited to recover its Excess Bank Charges.
