When we carry out your Audit, we go far above and beyond fulfilling your company’s statutory requirements. It should be much more than a ‘box-ticking’ regulatory exercise.
So while our first priority is to provide our independent assurance regarding the truth and fairness of your financial statements, we also use it as the ideal opportunity to better understand the intricacies of your business.
After all, the deeper our knowledge of how you operate, the more we can recommend ways to improve your performance and achieve your plans for future growth.
Our Audit service does not comprise of just one visit a year and starts well before your financial year end; it is an ongoing flow of information and advice, designed to keep you and your business informed and confident in its direction to achieve your future plans.
We will agree key dates and timescales with you, using interim visits, so by the time it comes to the post-year end fieldwork, we are confirming what we already know, not making new discoveries about your business and its financial performance.
Not only does this provide a clearer picture well in advance, it also reduces the amount of work for our team and yours come the end of the financial year.
The audit process usually comprises a combination of systems-based work, transaction testing and substantive year-end procedures, supplemented by analytical review.
We know it is important to combine the right information and a stress-free service, geared towards your business objectives, so you will find these principles are at the heart of the service we deliver.
Once the process is complete, we will provide you with our findings in a post-audit debrief, identifying risks, suggesting process improvements and planning for growth.
