Our specialist teams’ aim is to enhance your audit experience through gaining a detailed knowledge and understanding of your business. Unlike other firms we do not see the audit as a compliance exercise required by law; we go beyond this, exploring opportunities to benefit your business. Utilising our expertise in conjunction with our knowledge of your business enables us to offer relevant feedback or ideas, identify potential weaknesses or risks, and advise on remedial action.
Our specialist audit teams will not only complete an efficient and effective audit; they will also provide valuable feedback from the audit process.
We can work with you to develop a programme of internal audit to meet your requirements. Whether the aim is to strengthen internal controls, manage risk or simply review for best practice, we can help.
We undertake grant and contract audits on behalf of grant providers, especially European funding.
Where there is no requirement for a full audit, but there is still a need for some form of assurance on the company’s financial statements we can provide an Assurance Report. This can give stakeholders confidence in financial statements and adds credibility without the extent of a full audit.
Our personal approach means that we work closely with you and get to know your business. Based on continuous communication and maintaining continuity of staff, we can build an accurate picture of the business and really get to grips with the way you operate.
We agree timescales in advance and adhere to these, our process is very efficient and we will have agreed dates for sign off before the audit has even started. We respond promptly to all calls and emails, and are proactive in our client relationships.
Our comprehensive reporting style provides detailed constructive feedback. An audit is often completed due to legal requirements, our final reports are considered to add real value to the process.
As a member of the MSI Global Network, we have exclusive access to professional advice and services of a high quality around the globe. This network means that we can deliver services of the best standard world wide.
