Our assurance and internal audit services add credibility to your financial information and give you the added value of experienced observations and advice. We view the audit process as a vehicle for continuous improvement, offering you true security at the core of your organization.
A quality audit reveals crucial information that your business can benefit from in the future. Our methodology blends our technical competencies with a detailed knowledge of our clients, their markets and industry sectors. We meet with our clients regularly and know the industries in which they operate. Our assurance advisory team identify problems and opportunities and recommend both proactive and reactive ways to respond.
Our audit approach is determined by our assessment of the client’s systems and controls and our assessment of risk. Generally speaking, we seek to place reliance on management controls for all high-risk material account balances. Our policy looks to understand the controls operating on all high risk balances or assertions and identify the key issues to report to management.
Our services include:
An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statements presentation. Internal audit services and statutory pensions audit are both included within our audit advisory.
A review is limited primarily to inquiries of company personnel and analytical procedures applied to financial data, and thus provides less assurance than an audit.
A compilation engagement would ordinarily include the preparation of financial statements (which may or may not be a complete set of financial statements) but may also include the collection, classification and summarization of other financial information.
