    Abstract [en]

    The digitalization has a fundamental importance for the business world and enables presentation of complete information in real-time. Digital technics contributes to allow that large amounts of data can be collected, interpreted, applied and developed, which result in radical development opportunities. The digitalization is an important step in the audit development process and leads to the use of digital tools and automatized technics in the audit work. Researchers have paid attention to the impact of digitalization on the audit. However, there is an absence of research in the field regarding how it impacts the audit reliability and the audit risk. That contributed to identify the study’s research question which is: Which impact does the digitalization have on the audit and how does it impact the audit reliability and the audit risk?

    The purpose of this study was to describe and understand the impact of digitalization on the audit, as well as how it impacts the audit reliability and the audit risk. The methodological starting point consisted of interpretivism with focus on hermeneutics, an abductive approach and a qualitative method. The collection of information consisted of literature in form of previous research within the field, while the collection of empirical data is based on personal interviews with four authorized auditors, three program developers, one informatics expert and one representative of the industry’s supervisory authority.

    The study resulted in that the digitalization has a positive impact on the audit due to its possibilities for efficiency, real-time information and a more comprehensive audit. The efficiency can lead to free time for analyzes, judgements and advisory. The use of digital technics makes that traditional processes can evolve, which enables that the audit can include review of entire populations, rather than sampling. The consequence of an increasingly digitalized way of working is therefore an increased reliability in the audit. Automatized processes and controls can result to make the identification of deviations more easy, which can contribute to reduce the audit risk. It is and will in the future be important that the auditor’s competence can be combined with technology tools and automatized processes to create better prerequisites for the audit.
