Audit and Assurance

In this constantly-changing business environment, it is vital for companies and organisations to have a reliable team of experts advising them on how to navigate business structures, the occasional transactional jigsaw, periodically changing legislation, and so on.

With joined-up thinking, we offer you the best financial solutions and advice to help strengthen your foundations; this gives you a solid base to go on and realise your full potential.

Technological advances mean goods and services are being created and exchanged in the most fascinating ways these days. But it’s important to note that, irrespective of the fast pace of change, businesses should never compromise on procedures and standards. This is where our audit and assurance team comes in - to bring you the peace of mind that you deserve through the expertise of our staff.

With the frequent changes to business legislation or the compliance landscape, as well as the increased scrutiny on businesses these days, you need a reliable team of audit and assurance providers that will take the time to understand your business and its specific needs.

We can help with multiple services, including:


Corporate governance

External audit

Financial reporting

Grant and royalty audits

Internal audits and risk assurance


Our audit and assurance team's experience is broad, ranging across owner-managed businesses, private companies with many shareholders, quoted companies and subsidiaries of international groups.
