External Audit

Our external audit team is here to help your business stay compliant, including making sure that your financial statements comply with current accounting standards.

However businesses expect more from their auditors than the statutory audit and look for a value added service. We believe the ingredients of such a service will involve having an interest in your business and its success and this will be achieved by gaining a thorough understanding of your business; collecting input from partners and senior staff; a ‘team’ approach to the work and ensuring continuity of staffing and, above all, provision of a value for money service.

As well as delivering audit services to owner managed businesses, we act as the lead auditor for several international clients, managing the global audit process. Through our affiliation to Crowe Global (through Accelerate) and TIAG (The International Accounting Group) we are ideally placed to offer a truly global audit service. We also work with UK entities within international groups, working with overseas auditors to ensure compliance with UK statutory requirements and also adherence to the group auditor's work scope, instructions and all reporting deadlines.

Our public sector and not for profit audit team is experienced in audits for social housing providers, higher education institutions and charities. The team has a thorough understanding of the SORPs for each sector, providing support, advice and training on technical accounting matters.
