Unqualified Opinion or Clean Opinion

An unqualified or a ‘clean opinion’ is an audit report issued to ascertain that a company’s financial statements are per the account standards. Additionally, it shows that the company’s financial information and activities are clear of misinterpretations or errors.

Qualified Opinion

Contrary to an unqualified report, an auditor renders a qualified report in necessary circumstances. These circumstances are where the company officials did not keep financial statements per the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Adverse Opinion

An adverse opinion indicates gross misinterpretation that does not conform to the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Nevertheless, there is a possibility that there is fraud. However, this could be just errors in the financial reports.

In some instances, an audit fails to provide an infallible and accurate report of the company’s financial practices. This could be due to the unavailability of specific financial statements. Be that as it may, a disclaimer of opinion is issued.
