Sammanfattning: Today financial reports make up a core part of the lending process conducted by banks. In order to strengthen the information companies present, the information that the company communicates externally needs to be validated. A widely accepted way to conduct this validation is to hire an auditor that tests the information presented. In the audit report the auditor describes if the company's financial statements have been verified within reasonable certainty. A recent addition to this process is the introduction of Key Audit Matters (KAM) which was included for companies in Sweden that were of public interest. This essay examines what part the current audit report plays for Swedish loan officers. The study examines how the introduction of KAM has been received by Swedish loan officers and if the development towards a more company specific audit report is wanted. To gain a deeper understanding we also inquired about the auditor's role more generally. We also chose to examine the loan officers' opinions regarding the current audit report and how they would like to see it develop in the future. This was conducted using a qualitative method where twelve Swedish loan officers were interviewed. The conclusion was that Swedish loan officers currently used the audit report as a validation part in their lending process where the main focus lay in whether it was pure or not. The introduction of KAM was not found to have had any effect on the interviewed loan officers lending process. The loan officers had different opinions regarding if the auditor should be able to make more subjective statements such as KAM. All loan officers agreed that the main role of an auditor is an objective and controlling part.
