It is easy to think of audit fees as an unwanted cost that offers little or no value. And it's true that many people take this view. But an internal audit can be of huge benefit, providing valuable insights into the efficiency and effectiveness of internal processes.
Internal auditing for every business
An internal audit will provide independent assurance that your business or organisation is operating to the best of its ability. An internal audit report format includes a number of processes, from risk management and governance to internal control processes. Because of this, it can benefit businesses of all sizes, whether you are a growing start-up looking to develop or a large enterprise seeking to improve its effectiveness.
Our internal auditing process
We think of an audit as a chance to add value to your business. An audit involves a face-to-face meeting to gain an understanding of your business and a detailed examination of your key records and controls. Based on this examination, we can give you valuable insight into your company in the following areas:
Its operations and finances
Financial and management systems
Any problem areas
Our fees are transparent so that you know they are competitive and that you are getting value for money.
Adding real value to your business
Following the audit we will have a much clearer understanding of your business processes and how you operate. This enables us to discuss with you ways in which your business can grow and improve. We will work with you to put our recommendations in place, setting you up for future business growth and development.
