Hello Helen,

Thank you for your question, below is a response for your question

The Internal Audit Report is the third stage out of 4 stages of internal audit process, the stages are as follows:

1. Planning for the Internal Audit, usually at this stage the auditors must prepare the risk assessment as well as the audit work program.
