Audit & Assurance

For many organisations, an audit provides the reassurance to the users that the accounts are reliable. The user may be the shareholder group, lenders to the business, suppliers generally or in fact staff.

Our team has the specialist skills to provide the reassurance that:

  • Your company accounts comply with all the latest legal statutory requirements; and
  • They will be seen by customers, suppliers and Revenue authorities to be prepared properly.

Preparing the annual statements carefully can help the way in which the organisation is perceived by any of the user groups.

What you need to produce does vary depending upon the type and size of your organisation. For example, The Companies Act specifies certain limits so that a small company can choose to disclose less information in its financial statements than medium or large sized companies. (See details on Companies House website of the Companies Act limits)

Our team can help you review whether an audit is necessary for your organisation, or whether some other form of assurance would be suitable, 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.

Our Audit Services Include:

  • Statutory Audit
    If you require an audit under UK law then it is important to ensure that your business complies with these regulations, because non-compliance can be heavily penalised.
  • Voluntary Audit
    Just because you don’t have to have an audit, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. An audit can be a powerful marketing tool to show 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.
  • 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.
