Audit and Assurance

Put your business in safe hands.

With an ever more complex legislative framework to operate in, compliance has become more and more important for businesses today. We can give you peace of mind and tailor assurance services for your needs relying on our specialist experience in your industry.

Statutory Audits and Annual Accounts

Annual Accounts and Statutory Audits are the most obvious of your compliance requirements. All businesses are required to prepare annual financial statements to comply with taxation and/or corporate legislation, or to meet the requirements of financial institutions.
We can prepare the annual financial statements and advise you on the most appropriate accounting systems to satisfy your annual reporting requirements.

When planning the preparation of the financial statements we work closely with our clients to ensure that their requirements for appropriate management information are also satisfied.

We are also registered by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland to carry out statutory audits in Ireland and in the U.K. in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Acts and Auditing Standards in force.

Our audit is designed to enable us to express an audit opinion in accordance with the governing legislation and the auditing standards. Our audits are planned in conjunction with our clients to ensure that our staff have a thorough understanding of the client’s needs prior to commencement of the audit.

We seek to minimise the disruption to the client in the carrying out of the statutory audit and we do this by ensuring that suitably qualified staff are assigned to the client.
At the completion of the audit, we report to clients with suggested improvements to their internal control procedures.

Company Secretarial

The role of a company secretary is essential – but it eats into management time that could be more profitably used in growing your business. By availing of our full company secretarial compliance services, you can enjoy the best of both worlds – the knowledge that you have met your statutory obligations, plus the freedom to spend the time you save on more profitable activities.
