Auditing

It’s your time. You’re facing your annual audit, but feel like you need a new approach – maybe your current partner just isn’t working out. Or, maybe it’s your first audit, and you’re a bit nervous, unsure of what’s ahead. 

So what happens when you contact MHA MacIntyre Hudson for help with your auditing? 

We spend time getting to know you and your needs

When it comes to auditing, you can’t get good results by parachuting in once a year and hiding in an office. When you first contact us to work on your audits, we really get to know your business and your goals before we start. We ask questions, and we give you straight answers. After all, we can’t tell if things are right for you, if we don’t know what’s right for your business. 

We are proactive

One of the things that’s unique about MHA MacIntyre Hudson is our focus on sector expertise. And our sector experts are experts for a reason: they have their finger on the pulse. They know when new regulation is on the horizon that will affect your business, and they talk to you about it, educate you in terms you understand (no jargon here!), getting you ready to face the change with confidence. 

We communicate, and are transparent

Like we said, you can’t get good auditing by hiding in a cave once a year. When we’re onsite at your office, we’re part of your team. When we’re not there, we’re always available. We tell you what we’re up to, and give regular reports on progress in language you can understand, so there’s no nasty surprises.

We are your partner

We believe the statutory audit is an opportunity, not an overhead. It’s a great time to identify what’s working, and what’s not, so we can work together to fix things. We provide a quality-led approach and an intelligent, constructive and challenging audit for our clients. Think of us as the critical friend: we don’t just do your audits, but we audit with your business growth and objectives in mind. We don’t succeed unless you do.

So pick up the phone or get in touch, and let’s talk about how we can partner on your audit needs.
