Independent Auditor

A CPA who reviews a company's business activities to identify and resolve discrepancies. Independent auditors may investigate potential theft or fraud and ensure compliance with applicable regulations and policies. Importantly, an independent auditor is not employed by the company he/she is investigating. An independent auditor must review a company and provide it with an accountant's letter when it releases financial statements to shareholders. The accountant's letter certifies that the financial statements have been reviewed and are accurate. See also: Internal auditor.
