What is a Gross Turnover (GTO) Audit

A Gross Turnover (GTO) Audit is an examination of a business's reported gross turnover or revenue to verify its accuracy and compliance with accounting standards, tax regulations, and other relevant financial regulations. This type of audit is typically conducted by external auditors, certified public accountants (CPAs), or tax authorities to ensure that a company's reported gross turnover aligns with its financial records and transactions.

Here are key aspects and purposes of a Gross Turnover (GTO) Audit:

  1. Verification of Financial Records: The primary goal of a GTO audit is to verify that a company's financial records accurately reflect its gross turnover or revenue. Auditors examine financial statements, sales records, invoices, and other relevant documents to ensure that all income sources have been properly accounted for.

  2. Tax Compliance: Tax authorities may conduct GTO audits to confirm that a company is correctly calculating and reporting its taxable income. Accurate reporting is crucial to determine the appropriate amount of income tax owed.

  3. Detection of Fraud and Misreporting: GTO audits are designed to identify any discrepancies, irregularities, or instances of fraud in a company's financial records. This can include underreporting income, inflating expenses, or engaging in other fraudulent activities to reduce tax liability.

  4. Compliance with Accounting Standards: Auditors assess whether a company's accounting practices adhere to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) or international financial reporting standards (IFRS). This ensures consistency and transparency in financial reporting.

  5. Evaluation of Internal Controls: As part of the audit process, auditors may evaluate a company's internal controls and financial management procedures to identify weaknesses or areas where improvements are needed to prevent financial mismanagement.

  6. Verification of Gross Profit Margin: Auditors may also assess the company's gross profit margin, comparing revenue to the cost of goods sold (COGS). Anomalies in this margin can be a red flag for potential issues with revenue recognition or cost accounting.

  7. Reconciliation with Supporting Documentation: During a GTO audit, auditors reconcile reported revenue with supporting documentation such as sales contracts, customer invoices, bank statements, and other relevant records. This helps ensure that revenue is not artificially inflated or understated.


  8. Audit Report: The results of the GTO audit are typically documented in an audit report, which includes the auditor's opinion on the accuracy of the company's reported gross turnover, any findings of non-compliance or irregularities, and recommendations for corrective actions if necessary.

It's important to note that the scope and objectives of a GTO audit can vary depending on the specific goals of the audit, such as tax compliance verification or fraud detection. Additionally, GTO audits are typically conducted annually, but they may be triggered by specific events or concerns that warrant closer examination of a company's revenue reporting. Companies are required to cooperate fully with auditors during the audit process and provide access to all relevant financial records and documents.
