Audit & Assurance

Before we tick the box, we think outside it.

Your audit should not be seen as a box-ticking exercise or a necessary evil. Your annual audit should be a process from which you should receive real, measurable added value.

By spending time with you and allowing us to understand your business at a strategic level and by giving our team of qualified professionals access to your business at an operational level, your annual audit should be an opportunity to align the operational with the strategic, creating within the business the conditions to facilitate profitable growth and increased business value.

With a track record of delivering large and complex audit assignments to tight timescales, you can trust us to meet your deadlines, through a combination of rigorous planning, focussed execution, and a collaborative, commercial approach.

Internal Audit

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.

Statutory Audit

Our highly trained, people-focused audit teams will not only complete an efficient and robust audit; they will also provide you with valuable feedback from the audit process, allowing you to drive value in the business and create the conditions for profitable growth.
