Help with Accounting and Auditing Questions Plz..

Can anyone kindly provide answers to the following questions please? Prompt replies with be greatly appreciated.

Question1: A firm needs \$85,000 cash. A local bank will make a one-year loan but requires a 15% compensatory balance (the company would ordinarily keep a zero balance since the balance maintained in the account earns no interest). If the stated rate of interest is 12%, what is the effective cost?

Question2: Enumerate four items you would expect to find in an auditor's permanent audit file.

Question3: What should an auditor be looking for, or trying to ascertain, during his examination of accounts receivable at balance date?

Question4:The High Company obtained a short term loan for \$80,000 from the Centrum Bank on 1 December. The loan term was 60 days with an annual interest rate of 9.5%. On the maturity date the note was renewed for a further 30 days at an interest rate of 10.25%. On this date High Company issued a check to pay the interest for the accrued interest. At the end of the 30 days High Company issued a check to pay for the final amount owing to the Bank, including the principal.
