External Audit

We believe the statutory audit should be viewed as an opportunity, not an overhead. This is your chance to take a look under the hood of your business and make sure everything is running as it should – and if it’s not, it’s your chance to identify the issues and take steps to fix them.

Whether you report under UK Generally Accepted Accounting Practice (UK GAAP) or International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), our assurance service is more than a formality – it’s a necessity to protect your business and encourage it to thrive. 

Early warnings, open communication and pragmatic resolution of issues are the essential features of the approach we take. We take the time to gain a thorough understanding of your business to enable a smooth and efficient audit. Our audit is a risk-focused service integrating rigorous risk assessments with diagnostic processes and audit testing procedures tailored to your specific needs. This quality-led approach means we provide an intelligent, constructive and challenging audit.

Mike Kay

Partner

Mike is a well known name amongst the professional community in Essex and beyond. Over 20 years’ experience has ranged from secondment to clients, dealing with day to day challenges, through to heading up our Corporate Finance team in London and the South East. He has been awarded the "CF" designation by the ICAEW recognising his M&A experience since 1995.

Mike’s reputation and client base extends beyond East Anglia to the South Coast and up to the Midlands. He is regularly recommended by other professionals and clients for his simple and straightforward advice led approach - which he believes greatly increases the ability to understand, deliver and succeed - and his extensive knowledge of many industry sectors including leisure and hospitality, manufacturing and logistics. He is frequently instructed by banks to act on their behalf when considering lending propositions.

Working with businesses of all sizes, Mike has a particular focus on entrepreneurial clients, with many planning for future acquisitions, exits, buy outs and finance raising, drawing on his extensive knowledge in this area. Mike is often asked to provide business valuations in connection with matrimonial disputes and corporate restructurings.

Away from the office Mike can usually be found watching a game of rugby, when not working on his house renovation project, or enjoying a few glasses of fine wine. Unfortunately all this has limited his ability to reduce his golfing handicap.
