Limited Audit

An audit with a narrow scope. There are three types of limited audit. Some may only involve the investigation of certain departments, accounts or other units. Others may be short-term; that is, they may cover only the previous year. Finally, some may be limited to a specific subject, such as taxes or potential fraud.
