An analysis of the differences in audit processes used in the audit of nonprofit and profit organisations
Radich, Renee (1993) An analysis of the differences in audit processes used in the audit of nonprofit and profit organisations. Queensland University Technology, Brisbane. [Working Paper]
Nonprofits constitute a large part of collective behaviour in society. Presently there is little formal research addressing the role of audits in nonprofit organisations. Before models can be developed for the production of nonprofit auditing information, it is necessary to examine the present conduct of nonprofit audits. The Australian Accounting Research Foundation - Legislation Review Board has released a position paper on the Association Incorporation Acts in Australia - the most frequently used legal form for nonprofit organisations. The Board is addressing the issue of financial statement reporting including audit. This is coinciding with the investigations resulting from the collapse of the National Safety Council (Victorian Division), (NSC). The NSC, a nonprofit organisation formed as a company limited by guarantee, is in liquidation and the auditors are being sued for damages resulting from their alleged failure to perform their duties adequately.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
