The number of companies requiring an audit continues to decline, but for those businesses who still require it an audit is often looked on as a necessary evil. We approach audit assignments with this in mind, but our commercial background means that we are nevertheless looking to add value to your business whilst carrying out this process.
Our audits usually start with our client’s own data being transferred to our Iris system. This produces our audit working papers automatically, and so we can spend more of our time getting to grips with the business and in recommending changes to clients’ systems, if necessary.
We are happy to undertake specialist audit assignments of most types (including internal audit) and can operate on a one-off project basis where required.
More and more audit firms are offering not to attend at clients premises. You can send in your records over the Internet and they can send you a fee note the same way. We disapprove. To add value to a business you have to understand it. To fully understand a business you have to get a feel for it. There are soft management styles which mean as much, if not more, than the hard numbers can tell. If we can help you with your audit requirements, put the kettle on. We’re on the way.
First meetings are always free, and it is usually possible to agree fixed fees in advance of the work being carried out.
