We aim to deliver hassle free and efficient audit service to our clients and support clients who wish to have an audit even if they are not required to by law.

  • An audit involves a detailed review of the company’s accounting systems and systems of control and also requires a detailed understanding of the company’s business. Such a review and knowledge can provide increased opportunities to provide proactive business advice on many matters.
  • An unqualified audit report can improve the status of the accounts in the eyes of banks and commercial lenders, the Revenue, Customs & Excise and suppliers who may be seeking credit references, etc.
  • A history of accounts with clean audit reports can also be a factor if you ever wish to sell the company or, perhaps, take it to the market.
  • The possibility of fraud can be reduced and an audit can act as a deterrent to any potential fraudster.
