We all know that there are different types of Audits, each providing a different result. Here we will discuss the differenceDifferenceegulatory Audit, statutory, and performance audits.


Regulatory Audit

The audit of a particular product to determine if the regulations of the specific sector are followed.

Performance audit

It comprises examining the various methods to increase the efficiency and efficacy of the particular business and deciding which way will be more effective.

Statutory audit

The review of the business's financial statements, which have been mandated by the law or the statute of a jurisdiction.


All three different types of audits aim to assist the management by examining the process or procedures. But a significant difference is that out of the three, only a Statutory Audit can be considered a comprehensive and complete audit.
