Financial reporting - audit.

In financial reporting, misstatements are differences between amounts reported - or other disclosures - in financial statements, and the amounts or disclosures required by relevant accounting standards.

Factual misstatements include numerical errors and misclassifications.

Factual misstatements can be objectively determined with certainty, unlike judgmental misstatements.
