Audits that provide assurance and add value

Identify weaknesses, pin-point cost-saving opportunities, make valuable improvements to your business and provide comfort to stakeholders.

Specialist audit knowledge, specific to you

Conducting an audit allows you to comprehensively assess the financial health of your business and gain a clearer understanding of your position within your industry.

Today’s global marketplace is ever-changing and evolving, but with our guidance, you can adapt effectively and respond to any situation that arises.

We offer a straightforward process that won’t get in the way of your day-to-day. With clear communication and realistic timetables, we’ll ensure you get the right strategy in place for your business.

When is an audit required?

A statutory audit is legally required when two of the following three criteria occur over successive years:

  • Your turnover exceeds £10.2m
  • Total assets in excess of £5.1m
  • Your average number of employees is greater than 50

These same limits also apply to groups as a whole, so an individual company would still require an audit if they didn’t themselves breach the thresholds but the group that they were part of did.

There are numerous reasons why even when these thresholds are not breached, an audit would still be required. For example, lenders can often want the extra assurance an audit provides before committing to proving funds and external investors/business angels often seek the extra comfort that their investment is being spent wisely and systems are robust for the company to grow.

Part of a global group?

Given audit requirements apply to a group as a whole and not just individual companies, you may find that although you are not required to have an audit, your parent company that’s based overseas requires you to have one.

We work closely with group auditors from across the globe, as well as being the group auditor for international groups and having to satisfy ourselves to the work of component auditors.
