    Case Study on Double Ink Printers Ltd (DIPL)
    Background Information
    You are a senior manager with Stewart and Kathy and you have been approached to
    undertake the audit of Double Ink Printers Ltd (DIPL). For the year ended 2015, taking over
    from the small audit firm of Jay and Associates. DIPL print books, magazines and advertising
    materials for the publishing, educational and advertising industries on a print-on-demand
    basis. Printing on demand means that publishers can print the exact quantities ordered by
    retail outlets, rather than estimating in advance how many books are required and often
    printing too few or too many. The average printing turnaround time for DIPL is two business
    days for small orders and five to ten business days for large orders. In addition, five years ago,
    DIPL further expanded its earnings base by having publisher’s titles available as searchable ‘e-
    books’ that could be downloaded directly by readers from DIPL’s website.
    Purchase and Inventory
    DIPL purchases 50% of its inventory requirements of paper, ink and binding materials from
    Australian sources and 50% from Asian countries. When inventory received at DIPL’s
    warehouse (whether it is purchased from Australia or Asia), the accounts payable clerk, Bill
    Jimmy, records the arrival of the inventory and also its value and quantity in the accounts
    payable system. Inventory is paid for the relevant currency of the country from which it is
    purchased. Raw materials have been valued at average cost and an allowance for inventory
    obsolescence has existed in previous years to cover the estimated decline in value from the
    effects of storage hazards. Work in progress is immaterial due to the quick turn- around time
    of printing jobs. Any work in progress is assessed at the cost of raw materials and labour and
    proportion of manufacturing overheads based on normal capacity. At year end, the
    warehouse is closed from 28 to 30 June for stocktake, so sales must be invoiced in the system
    by close of business on 27 June. The stock must have been sent to the customer (that is, it
    must either be on track, ship or plane on its way to the customer, or it must already have
    arrived at the customer; it must no longer be in DIPL’s warehouse).
    ‘Print on Demand’ revenue and receivables
    Each time a publisher wants to add a book to DIPL’s ‘digital library’ (a server storing all of the
    publisher’s books in a digital format, ready to print), it emails the book to DIPL in PDF format.
    The digital library is backed up at the close of business every day, with the backup tapes kept
    off site. Once the book is stored in the digital library, the publishers can order copies to be
    printed as required.
    When the publishers confirm the order, the accounting system automatically retrieves details
    of the publisher’s credit record and stops any orders from publishers that have exceeded their
    credit terms and limits. A printout of the transactions history of the publishers is generated
    and must be signed by both Helena keng, the head of publishing, and Jane Roger, the head of
    accounts at DIPL, before the order can continue, after the transaction history has been signed
    and dated, accounts receivable staff file it.
    If there are no credit problems with the order, it is processed and printed by casual staff in
    the relevant warehouse, who then load the books onto pallets for shipping. When printing is
    finished, the sales clerk, Brown Pall, prepares an invoice and dispatch docket and forwards
    them to the accounts receivable department. The accounts receivable clerk Gay Chan, checks
    the prices and arithmetic accuracy of the invoices and signs the invoice as evidence of her
    check. Gay records the sales both the accounts receivables subsidiary ledger and the general
    ledger and books are shipped to the publisher’s nominated destination (or the publisher will
    arrange pick up at the warehouse if has its own distributors). The client accepts liability for
    the goods when they are received in accordance with the purchase order, and signs the
    dispatch docket as proof of delivery.
    ‘E-book’ Revenue
    The proceeds from each e-book sale are paid to the publisher’s net of a 5% commission.
    Proceeds are sent to publishers automatically upon download (the commission is withheld by
    DIPL). Revenue from the commission is recognised when is withheld from payment to the
    DIPL also charge publishers an annual “storage fee” payable 12 months in advance, for
    keeping the e-book on DIPL’s website. Publishers are invoiced on the date the first download
    of a title occurs. As new books are downloaded on an ongoing basis, the storage fee is invoiced
    at different times of the year. Revenue from storage fees has been recognised in the month
    the fees are invoiced, notwithstanding the fact that the fees are charged 12 months in
    In September 2014, DIPL acquired Nuclear Publishing Ltd (NPL). The main rationale behind
    the lay in the value of the copyright NPL held over a large range of specialised medical
    textbooks. Although the potential print run for the textbook was not large, each textbook had
    a high profit margin and had been used in universities across the world for many years. DIPL
    acquired the business operation of NPL (not the shares), paying net assets (including the right
    to the copyright). However, in June 2015 an article was published in a medical journal about
    a new theory that could result in NPL’s medical textbooks becoming obsolete. If the new
    theory is valid, the textbooks are unlikely to be reprinted or used as textbooks at universities
    in the future, effectively making them unviable as e-books.
    Cash Receipts
    Some Payments from accounts receivables are received by cheque through the mail, and the
    cashier, Judy Bones, record these in an inwards remittance register when the mail is opened.
    She then banks the cheques and forwards the payment advices to Gay Chan for posting ton
    the accounts receivable ledger. Most payments, however, are received by electronic funds
    transfer (EFT). Each day, Judy downloaded the previous day’s receipts from online banking
    and provides a copy to Gary for posting. Judy then reconciles the total of the batch postings
    to accounts receivable to the amount banked for the day. The assistant accountant, Boby
    Roger, prepares a bank reconciliation at the end of each month.
    Fixed Assets
    Since DIPL’s incorporation, depreciation on assets has been calculated using the straight-line
    method to allocate their cost over their estimated useful lives, as follows:
    • Printing presses up to 20 years
    • Other production equipment up to 15 years
    • Other equipment up to 10 years
    During 2015, DIPL has entered into a 7.5 million loan from BDO Finance Ltd (BDO Finance).
    The loan has debt covenant’s requiring DIPL to maintain a current ratio of at least 1.5 and a
    debt to equity ratio of less than 1. Failure to maintain these key financial ratios under the
    specified benchmarks would result in BDO Finance having the right to recall the loan.
    Appointment of New CEO and internal Audit
    William Jackson was appointed the new chief executive officer (CEO) of DIPL in January 2015.
    William has extensive experience in the printing business. The previous CEO, Rebecca Styles,
    who is now semi- retired, will remain on the board as a non-executive director. A component
    of William’s remuneration package is a performance bonus based DIPL achieving an annual
    growth of 10% in total revenue and 10% in net profit after tax. Based on William’s
    recommendation, the board also established a new internal audit department headed up by
    Cody Baines, an ex-audit manager with a Big Four audit firm and two other recently qualified
    chartered accountants. Cody reports directly to the board.
    New IT System
    During 2015, DIPL decided to invest in a new IT system that would fully computerised and
    integrate all the current accounting processes across the organisation, including integration
    into the general ledger system.
    Under extreme pressure from the board, the IT department at DIPL managed to get the new
    accounting system installed in June, although IT manager, Andy Rogers, complained several
    times about how the installation was handled. Andy claimed that excess pressure had been
    placed on staff to get the system installed and that there was simply not enough staff to do
    the proper reconciliation’s and testing before the new system went live prior to year-end.
    Andy preliminary testing showed that some transactions conducted around year-end were
    not being allocated to the correct period. The problem appeared to be the interface between
    the new accounting system and one of the existing software systems. A software ‘patch’ had
    to be written to fix the problem.
    Board year-end reporting discussions
    As a board meeting held in June 2015, issues relating to the forthcoming year end were
    discussed. William stated that he believed that the valuation of raw materials inventories at
    average cost was no longer appropriate as the current cost of paper was substantially above
    the average cost. Further, he argued that the allowance for obsolescence of inventory to
    cover the estimated decline in value from the effects of storage hazards was necessary, as
    such a loss was unlikely. William also stated that based on his experience in the printing
    industry he believed that DIPL’s printing presses had a potential maximum life of 30 years,
    although he noted that another leading entity in the printing industry adopted the policy of
    depreciating its printing presses over a 20-year period on a straight-line basis, similar to what
    DIPL had done in the past. After much discussion, the board resolved that the allowance for
    obsolescence of inventory be written back and that raw materials be valued based on a first-
    in, first-out (FIFO) basis. In addition, following a review of the e-book facilities by internal
    audit, Cody recommended that in a report to the board that DIPL change the method it used
    to account for its revenue from e-book publication to ensure compliance with the applicable
    accounting standard. The board agreed that the revenue from e-book would be recognised in
    accordance with the stage of completion of each transaction (i.e. percentage of completion

    Please note that it is the student’s responsibility to check Blackboard on a regular basis. It is expected that
    students will have viewed lecture materials and additional readings before class. All students are advised to
    familiarize themselves with the use of Blackboard. Guides to Blackboard are available in the Resource Centre
    on each campus. Should you have difficulties accessing and/or using Blackboard, please contact your lecturer
    or the Holmes Institute Blackboard Helpdesk on: bbhelpdesk@holmes.edu.au.
    As part of their degree studies, students are expected to engage in additional research. Textbooks and
    teaching materials available in the Resource Centre will be of use here. In addition, current students have
    access to a range of electronic academic journals via ProQuest, which is accessible once you log into
    Blackboard. Holmes Institute also supports students using Google Scholar.
    Should you require any assistance with the use of ProQuest and/or online research, please contact your
    lecturer and/or the Resource Centre staff on your campus.
    Students who have difficulties with their studies and/or specific forms of assessment are encouraged to
    contact their lecturer/tutor, academic mentor or the Student Engagement and Support Coordinator.
    Holmes Institute offers regular Academic and Study Skills Workshops throughout the semester, which are
    useful addressing important academic skills and are free for any student to attend. Students with insufficient
    academic progress may be required to attend these workshops and sessions with the Academic Progress
    Academic and Study Skills Workshops are offered throughout the trimester for essay writing, doing research
    using ProQuest, giving business presentations, referencing and examination preparations. Announcements
    are made on your Blackboard and on noticeboards on campus.

    Do I need to obtain 50% in each assessment to pass a subject?
    NO, in order to pass any subject, you need to meet two requirements, namely achieve an overall mark of 50
    or more AND obtain at least 40% of possible marks in the final examination (hurdle or threshold
    requirement). There is no hurdle or threshold requirement for assessments other than the final examination
    though and you can still pass the subject if you got less than 50% in any assessment – excluding the final
    I missed an assessment for a subject, do I now fail the subject?
    Whilst Holmes Institute requires that you attempt all pieces of assessments prescribed for any subject, there
    may be circumstances, where you can still pass a subject even if you have missed an assessment. When you
    miss a class test due to medical reasons and you submit a medical certificate within three working days, for
    example, you may be eligible to have the weight of the class test added to the final examination. Please see
    the Student Handbook for details.
    Can I view my assessments?
    As a student, you are entitled to view any of your assessments, that is any assignment but also the class test
    for any subject, and upon request/application also the final examination script. Please note that viewing any
    assessment is an administrative process and no academic advice is given and students are neither allowed to
    take pictures or notes of the assessment. Students are only allowed to view any assessment with an
    administrator present, and for a limited period of time (please check the Student Handbook for details). Other
    than assignments, the class test and examination script remains the property of Holmes Institute.
    Where can I see my marks and grades?
    All your results will be available via the Grade Centre on your Blackboard. You can access the results for each
    subject in the respective folder. Please ensure that you familiarise yourself with the letter grades, especially
    for the temporary grades of NS (supplementary examination awarded) and ND (deferred examination), which
    can be found earlier in this subject outline.
    I got a final result of 52/NS. Have I passed the subject?
    NO, as the letter grade NS (supplementary examination awarded) indicates, you have not passed the subject,
    but you have been awarded the opportunity to pass the subject if you successfully pass the supplementary
    examination. Please familiarise yourself with the Supplementary Examination Policy in the Student Handbook.
    HI6026 Auditing and Assurance Services T2 2017
    When do I need to attempt a NS/supplementary or ND/deferred examination?
    If you have been awarded a supplementary (NS) or deferred (ND) examination, you are required to sit the
    examination during the next examination period for these examinations, which is different from the final
    examination period at the end of the teaching period each trimester.
    I missed to sit for a NS/supplementary or ND/deferred examination, do I have to repeat the subject?
    YES, if you do not attempt any supplementary or deferred examination during the designated examination
    period, you will receive a Fail/NN grade and you have to repeat the subject.
    I have a question about the subject material and/or assessments, who do I contact?
    For any questions related to any subject you study, the first point of contact is always your lecturer. The
    subject outline includes the contact details of each lecturer on each campus. Please ensure that you use your
    Holmes Webmail for any email correspondence with your lecturer.
    I did not submit my assignment by the due date, can I still submit and receive marks?
    If you submit your assignment after the due date, penalties of 5% of the weight of the assignment apply per
    day that you submit late. A maximum penalty of 50% applies. Your lecturer may not accept your assignment if
    you submit later than 14 days after the due date. If you are late with your assignment, please contact your
    I am not a member of a group for my group assignment. What do I do, can I submit individually?
    If you work submit a group assignment individually, you may be penalized and only receive 50% of the mark
    of your assignment. If you don’t have a group to work with, please urgently consult your lecturer.
    I have problems with members in my group. What can I do, who do I contact?
    Each group is required to manage its members and contributions. In exceptional circumstances, however, and
    where initial negotiation attempts of the group members were unsuccessful, you should contact your
    Studying at degree level, you may experience a number of difficulties and/or challenges. These might involve
    academic, personal and/or professional issues. At Holmes Institute, we have a range of people who can help
    you with various challenges. The following table identifies contact points should you require any support.
