At the heart of RSM is a passion for audit and assurance, providing our clients with valuable insights and information that can assist in key strategic operations. By getting to know your business, our enthusiastic audit specialists will be able to apply rigorous methodologies and gain a deep knowledge of your specific circumstances.
Committed to quality and value
Producing quality audits is of paramount importance to us. All our audit and assurance services follow these key tenets to guide our approach:
- Understanding your business;
- Our rigorous internal quality assurance procedures;
- Our outstanding technical and marketplace knowledge; and
- Making sure your audit is worth the money you pay for it.
Committed to clients
Although the professional auditing marketplace continues to change and shift, our stance remains that regulatory reform does not adversely affect you. We are committed to finding out what you think and surveying the business community at large to drive the best auditing services possible.
Tailored audit approach
Our professional auditing approach is founded on detailed risk assessments and corroborated analytical review, which involves understanding what makes each business tick. We put robust and considered planning at the center of our process and involve the client at all stages.
The value of professional auditing
Not all businesses require an audit but this doesn’t necessarily mean they wouldn’t benefit from the insight one could provide. If you are a growing business or are considering a sale, a reorganization, or flotation to the stock market, audit services could help ensure you have everything in order in good time and make you more appealing to investors.
Alternatively, you can ask us about the other assurance services we can provide, including a non-statutory audit. This can help reassure stakeholders that your business is performing, risks are being mitigated, and you’re complying with legislation. We are always happy to discuss how we can help and any bespoke audit and assurance services you may require.
Financial reporting advisory - IFRS
In our view, letting financial reporting lead the way increases your chance of achieving your objectives. That’s why we want to help you develop a reporting structure that suits your business and sets you on the way to successful transformation.
Bringing together a unique set of skills and expertise, RSM’s financial reporting advisory team can perform crucial financial auditing services that provide you with high-level advice on issues relating to:
- International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS); and
- Amendments to the local Companies Act.
Through our corporate auditing services, we can offer you a unique viewpoint. Our powerful tools can help you when you are:
- undergoing corporate restructuring.
- implementing complex accounting rules.
- preparing to list on the stock market.
- planning a demerger.
By working in partnership with us, you can create a template for change, moving to a new financial reporting structure that best fits your business.
Examples of the benefits of leading with financial reporting include:
- Sustainable growth.
- Achieving desired earnings objectives.
Group reorganization and restructuring
Rationalizing the assets, liabilities, and trading structures of different entities through corporate auditing services can create enormous commercial advantages. Taking a high-level approach with the Companies Act and financial reporting at heart ensures a pain-free transition and avoids auditing issues — not to mention higher costs — later on.
IFRS conversion and listing
Taking a strategic approach to IFRS conversion ensures the business will address the significant accounting issues early and avoid the shocks arising from a conversion project taking place prior to listing.
Acquisitions and disposals
Looking at acquisitions, demergers, disposals, and exits from a financial reporting perspective creates a much wider matrix of choices. It also provides a baseline from which directors and business owners can make informed decisions about which route to take.
All too often, financial reporting and company law issues are the last thing to be considered in a corporate transformation. When left to be one of the last areas of consideration, they may be difficult or impossible to resolve without unpicking earlier decisions.
Our financial auditing solutions will assist you in making the best decision for your business, providing a clear rationale with insights to back up our recommendation.
Forensic audit and investigation
In an increasingly complex business landscape, complicated questions can arise. There is, however, a big difference between suspicion and facts. Finding the truth quickly is imperative. Gathering evidence that withstands scrutiny is essential.
When issues arise, you need forensic accountants who can unravel the puzzle efficiently and document the evidence appropriately, so you can move forward with the necessary information.
