Continuous audit

 A continuous audit or a detailed audit, as it is sometimes called, is an audit which involves a detailed examination of the books of account at regular intervals of say one month or three months.

The auditor visits his clients at regular or irregular intervals during the financial year and checks each and every transaction. At the end of the year he checks the remaining transactions which have not been checked, the profit and loss account and the balance-sheet.
