What is the Difference between a Regulatory Audit, Statutory Audit, and Performance Audit?


We all know that there are different types of Audits, each providing a different result. Here we will discuss the difference between Regulatory Audit, Statutory Audit, and Performance audit.


Regulatory Audit

It is 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

It is 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.

This is because a Regulatory Audit will tell us the details about the product, whereas a Performance Audit will tell us about a process to make the product more effective and efficient, but the Statutory Audit will allow us to understand the financial health of the entire organization.
