Audit

External Audit Services

Financial controllers, directors and managers know very well the importance of a thorough external audit.

Whether legally required or not, an independent audit allows specialists to take a detailed look at your business to verify your financial statements, keep you compliant and reveal ways to improve your systems and controls. Without one, you’re in the dark.

Reliable, timely insights

We make it our business to take what many financial teams regard as a chore and turn an audit into a point of strength for your business. 

It’s not always easy letting an external party study your business so intimately. You may have encountered issues in the past around confidentiality, unreliable figures, missed deadlines or missed opportunities. This may have led to further problems with your bank or creditors. 

Our processes and transparency are designed to eradicate all these concerns. You’ll get the exact information, insights and professional advice you need, exactly when you need it, and at an agreed fee.

Advice and service targeted at your priorities

Key to our audit service is understanding your business, where it is positioned and how it is operating. While these are fundamental considerations, they are not always straightforward. Through documenting and understanding your processes, risks, controls and systems, we can work with you to identify areas of potential weakness within your organisation, highlight where you might be exposed to financial risks, and where there may be greater opportunities.

In our hands, an audit is much more than a process to certify accounts and ensure you’re compliant with the law. It becomes a powerful tool for optimising your organisation and a vital input for a robust business plan with built-in resilience.

And beyond the audit, our expert teams of advisers can provide you with the technical knowledge and support you need to meet all your obligations, while at the same time maximising the value of your audit through practical focused advice.

 

Perhaps you need an internal audit?

An external audit focuses on your finances, cash flow and forecasting as well as your reporting systems and controls.

If you want to focus purely on your current processes, liabilities and safeguards, then an internal audit from our Risk & Assurance specialists will provide insights to save you from future potential issues and streamline your business.
