Professional Audits

Gain the reassurance of an expert independent view


Fast, efficient auditing

Our friendly and expert team make audits easy and beneficial to your business.

We deliver audits on time, on budget, with team continuity and providing minimal disruption to your business.  We explain what to expect, and then we carry out the audit as planned.

We have an experienced and well-trained team, robust internal processes, and excellent accounting software.  

We offer specialist audits for charities and solicitors which meet the requirements of management, regulators and stakeholders.


Business benefits

The audit report adds credibility to the accounts in the eyes of third parties whether they are lenders, customers, suppliers or potential shareholders.

Businesses and charities of a certain size and specific legal and financial concerns are obliged to audit their accounts. Many smaller, private businesses are exempt from audit requirements yet choose to undertake audits due to the benefits they bring.

We review your financial controls and management systems to help you identify risks and how best to minimise them. We help you recognise potential risks to your business and put preventative measures in place.

Audit services for charities

We provide audit services and independent examinations to charities. This type of independent assessment is important to demonstrate to donors that their money is used well. Audit services are provided in line with legal requirements. 

These services are also provided to charities which do not have a legal obligation but do choose to provide added reassurance and transparency to stakeholders with an objective, independent assessment of their financial situation.
