What is Sales Audit?

Retail businesses that operate in shopping malls will be aware of a clause in their lease agreement that requires them to submit a Statement of Gross Turnover (GTO) audited by a public accountant. This is also known as Statement of Gross Sales or Statement of Nett Turnover, depending on the naming convention in the lease agreement.

Gross turnover refers to the total sales generated by the business every financial period. The submission of this information is required as a component of the rent paid is based on a percentage of the gross turnover.

The definition of gross turnover is specified in the lease agreement which provides for certain component of sales to be included/excluded respectively. It is recommended that an experienced public accounting firm be engaged right from business commencement so that the monthly reporting of the GTO is done properly.
