External Audit

External Business Audits

The audit profession is subject to strict oversight, which has been continuously reinforced over the last few years to preserve financial security and improve the quality of financial reporting.

We understand that the most important decisions are the ones that our clients have yet to make. Our clients require the satisfaction of a robust challenge, at the right time, properly planned and executed with the highest level of quality in work supporting our audit opinion, and also expect the audit to add increasing value to their business. As such, we believe the statutory audit should be viewed as an opportunity, not an overhead.

Whether you report under the 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. Our audit approach, methodology, and supporting technologies are considered benchmarks within our profession. In addition, our talent strategy sets high standards of behaviour and gears people toward delivering quality results.

Early warnings, open communication, and pragmatic resolution of issues are the essential features of our approach. 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 industry and circumstances. Our risk-based, quality-led approach means we provide an intelligent, constructive and challenging audit.
