From: "Darlene Wardlaw"
Subject: Understanding the Revenue Cycle

I’ve attached a Sales internal control questionnaire from another engagement that I think you can use for Apollo. You may want to talk to Karina Ramirez to get answers to the questions.

1. Complete the ICQ for Apollo. For “yes” answers, add a comment stating which department and clerk performs the function. For “no” answers, describe the possible “errors” or “frauds” that could occur because of the control weakness.
2. I’ve started a flowchart and listed some strengths and weaknesses, but had to leave before ...view middle of the document...

Apollo Accounting and Control Systems: Revenue and Collection Cycle
As evident in the company organization chart, Apollo has several departments and offices concerned with management, accounting, and control. The company also has an abbreviated accounting and control manual, although the manual has not been kept up to date. Officers and employees have described accounting and control procedures informally under the heading of several transaction cycles. Their descriptions of the company's current revenue cycle activities appear below.

Credit Approval and Sales Processing
Customer orders are received in the mail, over the telephone, and over the counter by salesclerks in the marketing department. The clerks prepare written sales orders for telephone and counter customers, signing each one and asking the counter customers to sign in person. The sales orders contain the customer name, a customer number (assigned immediately for new customers), customer address, identification of products, and the quantity ordered. The sales order forms are kept in the salesclerks’ working area through which many people pass during the day. The sales order documents used in the offices are not prenumbered.

The salesclerks prepare an estimate of the dollar amount of the order and write it on the form. The sales orders are then hand-carried to the credit manager, who is in the treasurer’s department. The credit manager checks the customers’ accounts receivable balances and other credit file information using a computer-based inquiry system. If credit is approved, the credit manager signs the sales order.

If credit is not approved, the customer is asked to pay in advance, and the sales order is held until notification of payment is received from the cashier. The sales order is stamped “paid” and sent to the billing department. Likewise, when customers pay cash over the counter, the money is taken by the cashier, and the sales order is stamped “paid” and sent to the billing department. For bookkeeping convenience, these “cash” sales are treated the same as credit sales, with the invoice amount being charged to an account receivable set up for the customer, and the customer’s payment being applied immediately to the same account.

After credit has been approved, or a payment received, the sales orders are sent to the billing department in the controller’s office. The billing clerks produce a four-copy sales invoice on a prenumbered invoice form. Using a screen facsimile on a personal computer, they insert the customer and product information from the customer order, the date, and the product unit prices from an approved price list. Sales taxes, delivery charges, and the invoice total are computed and put on the invoice. The sales invoice forms are kept in a locked closet in the billing department, and sheets in the numerical sequence are removed only for billing clerks’ immediate loading onto the computer printer.
