External Audit

External Business Audits

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.

Get in touch to discuss how we can turn your statutory audit into an opportunity for growth.

Yogan A. Patel

Partner

Yogan qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1983 and is a Partner here at MHA MacIntyre Hudson.

Yogan is very much a key part of his clients' teams. As well as having an advisory role he acts as a facilitator, enabling clients to clearly see through the obstacles that face them and find the solutions, rather than the more traditional provision of straightforward business advice. To give you time to answer the big questions, your business must be running smoothly, but for it to run smoothly time must be given to important issues. Yogan works with clients through the planning process and helps to turn ideas into actions.

In addition to advising owner-managed businesses on strategic matters and tax planning, he is fully involved in all aspects of a client's business which includes audit, accounts, tax compliance, recruitment etc.

Yogan has a wide range of clients, particularly in the Technology, Manufacturing and Property sectors, as well as in Fashion and Healthcare. His portfolio includes individual personal high net-worth tax clients, limited companies, limited liability partnerships and unincorporated businesses. He acts for both UK and international clients - notable territories include India, South East Asia, Middle East, USA and Cyprus. 

Yogan is a Fellow of the ICAEW and a member of the ICAEW tax faculty and audit and assurance faculty. As one of the senior members of our International team Yogan travels widely meeting the needs of our clients wishing to do business overseas or set-up in the UK. He represents the firm in Middle East and Asia Pacific regions within Baker Tilly International and is responsible for the firm’s India desk.

Yogan also heads up Asia Pacific within MHA MacIntyre Husdon and travels to the Far East regularly and acts for clients from those areas establishing in UK giving them all support from advisory, tax structuring to compliance.
