Abstract

Audit professionals today are becoming wiser in term of detecting audit errors and frauds. Auditor plays an important role in helping organization for their concerns about risks, frauds and errors. This is the reason the companies in Iraq are trying to have proper control and IT audit mechanism. But, in fact the trial balance and financial reporting are still compiled manually among the Iraqi companies. Audit matters in Iraqi companies are lacking in term of utilizing information technology (IT) resources effectively and efficiently.

There are also inadequate audit internal control which leads to errors and frauds. This study determines the extent of IT audit in listed companies in Iraq.

The sampling was done on 110 listed companies in Iraq but only 73 listed companies were used.

The findings suggest that there is a positive relationship between internal auditor and quality of information on IT audit. However, there is a negative significant relationship between real-time and IT audit.
