Investopedia explains 'Unqualified Opinion'


An unqualified opinion is issued when the independent auditor believes that the company's financial statements are sound; that is, the statements are free from material misstatements. This is different from a qualified opinion which is issued when the independent auditor discovers something in the financial statements that is subject to major concern.
