Audit & Assurance

There are many reasons why you might need an audit or assurance report. It might be that you need it to comply with requirements under UK law, or you want to reassure investors, or to review your processes and controls. Whatever the reason, our specialist audit team are here to help and provide you with peace of mind.

We are passionate about safeguarding your business and working with you to understand your goals and challenges, whilst ensuring that you stay compliant. We will help you review whether an audit is necessary for your organisation, or whether some other form of assurance would be suitable.

Our team will provide reassurance that your company accounts comply with all the latest legal statutory requirements and that they have been prepared properly, as well as assist with the preparation of the statutory accounts and the filing of the accounts (abbreviated if appropriate), ensuring the accounts contain the relevant disclosures.

When do you need an audit?

What you need to produce does vary depending upon the type and size of your organisation.

Statutory audit

Your business is required to complete a statutory audit under the following circumstances:

  • If you are a company with a turnover of more than £10.2m and gross assets in excess of £5.1m
  • If you are the subsidiary of an overseas company
  • If you are a charity with an income of over £1 million
  • If you have other regulatory reporting requirements e.g. ABTA/ATOL

Voluntary audit

Just because you don’t have to have an audit, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. You may choose to have a voluntary audit. An audit can be a powerful marketing tool to show possible investors or lenders that your business is doing well, as well as giving you peace of mind that your business is developing as it should.

Specialist Audits

Through our specialist teams, we regularly carry out audits for Charities, Education and Not-for-Profit organisations, as well as Solicitors (Solicitors Accounts Rules Report.)

Due Diligence

We can perform a tailored financial and/or taxation due diligence exercise specific to the needs of the assignment, particularly if you’re thinking of expanding your company through acquisition, or are contemplating a management buy-in or management buy-out, then you need to be sure that your investment is as free from risk as possible.
