Year End Review – Do Audits Reveal Wasteful Spending

The end of the year does not just mean that it’s time to say hello to a new year, but also, this indicates that it is the season of expiring budgets. Businesses and some organizations have budgets that expire at the end of the year. The majority of the departments that handle the expiring budget tend to spend it on something that is not beneficial to their organization. They do this instead of returning the money to the fund.
