We see your annual audit as more than just compliance; it is an opportunity for us to enhance and develop your business, highlighting areas of opportunity and providing practical and pragmatic solutions to challenges you face and issues identified during the audit.
Our external audit approach
We understand that not every business is the same; therefore we tailor our approach to the external audit taking into account the size and nature of your business as well as investing the time of our partner-led team in you to understand and analyse risks before formulating and providing a written audit plan to you, highlighting the high risk areas we will focus on.
We will provide you with a well-planned, clearly structured, risk-based external audit process, delivered to a timeline, agreed with you, that incorporates proactive communication at all stages. Issues and general progress will be communicated to you during the audit process, avoiding any surprises at the conclusion of the process.
We will provide a written report summarising the conclusion of our risk-based approach, highlighting any opportunities and any issues identified along with our recommendations for rectifying these. The report will be discussed with you prior to finalising to ensure accuracy.
Our approach is summarised as:
