Statutory Audit:

Determines whether an organisation is providing a fair and accurate representation of its financial position by examining information such as bank balances, bookkeeping records and financial transactions. The ultimate objective of this exercise is for us to issue an audit report within the statutory accounts noting the (hopefully favourable) results of our audit. These are obligatory for medium and large companies, although small companies may choose an audit to satisfy lenders, suppliers and customers or simply to give the business owners an annual financial health check.

Tax Audit:

This is an examination of an organisation's or individual's tax return to verify that financial information is being reported correctly. 

Our job as external auditors:

To conduct an independent examination and review of an entity’s accounting records as well as the physical inspection of its assets. To ensure the entity adheres to up to date compliance regulations as well as recommending necessary changes in controls, policies and procedures.

Routine internal audits ensure the company has the ability to survive in a competitive business environment and continue to prosper. Auditors do this by: monitoring, analysing and assessing the risks and controls of the organisation.

Audits are usually carried out on a quarterly or yearly basis and can add credibility to an organization’s financial position as well as give peace of mind to any investors or stakeholders connected to the company.

Does my company require an audit?

We aim to deliver hassle free audits and there are good reasons for having an audit even if you are not required by law to have one.

The main reasons are: 

  • You are a PLC company or a banking insurance or finance company (or a subsidiary of one of these)
  • You are required by your professional or trade company to have your accounts audited
  • Your shareholders do not agree to you opting out of an audit
  • If you decide to sell the company, a history of accounts with a clean audit report can be a deciding factor
  • The possibility of fraud can be reduced, and an audit can act as a deterrent to any potential fraudster

For accounting periods on or after 1 January 2016 audit thresholds are aligned with the new qualification as a small company, meaning companies (including LLP’S) are exempt from having a statutory audit if they meet 2 of the following conditions:

  • Turnover below £10.2 million
  • Balance sheet below £5.1 million
  • Less than 50 employees

Most subsidiary companies are exempt from having audits if their parent company guarantees their liabilities.

The Outcome

Once an audit has been completed, the entity is presented with a report which is the formal opinion of audit findings. The audit report is the end result of an audit and can be used by the recipient person or organisation as a tool for financial reporting, investing, altering operations, enforcing accountability, or making decisions.

An effective audit report is essential to making sure the results of your audit are presented in a way that is useful to the party receiving the audit.
