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.
