UK businesses over a certain size are required by law to have their accounts audited every year. Our independent auditors can provide a clear review on your accounting practices and financial statements to portray a clear view of the your business's financial activity. Our audit services give a valuable opportunity to give a transparency into your business.
Audit services for other regulated industries
Other industries that are highly regulated are also required to have their accounting practices audited. This includes:
- Charities – Statements of Recommended Practice (SORPs)
- Firms of solicitors – Solicitors Accounts Rules (SARs)
- Travel businesses (CAA, ABTA, ABTOT annual accountant's reports)
- Pension schemes
- Landlords and property management companies – service charge audits
Why should you use an external auditor?
We believe a full audit service can be a chance to add value to your business. A full audit service involves:
- A face-to-face meeting to gain an understanding of your business
- A detailed examination of your key records and controls
As a result we can give you valuable insight into your company, including:
Following the accounts audit we will discuss with you ways in which your business can grow and improve and will work with you to put recommendations in place.
Risk assurance reviews
For companies that don't require an audit there is an option of having an assurance review of their accounts. Some of the main benefits of an assurance review are:
- Increase credibility of your accounts
- Reduce risk of fraud
- Provide comfort for investors
- Cheaper than an audit
