Audit and Accounting
The preparation of accounts coupled with a rigorous audit are at the core of services we provide.
We take a hands-on approach to helping directors or business owners fulfil their responsibilities to prepare and submit accounts to Companies House, HM Revenue & Customs and other regulatory bodies.
In addition, a set of professionally prepared accounts will often be required by creditors, banks and other financial institutions in support of applications for credit facilities.
Our technical expertise is complemented by commercial awareness and sector-specific knowledge that means we can present your accounts and annual report in a way that creates a positive image of your business.
The format of accounts and the interpretation of financial reporting standards are exacting and complex. Our partner-led teams will ensure that your accounts comply with all current requirements. Advanced software ensures that the process is highly efficient so that we spend more time interpreting the results and less on processing the numbers.
This enables us to identify potential problem areas and spot potential opportunities to improve your business performance.
For those businesses requiring an audit, the key to its effectiveness is:
- getting to understand your business at an early stage
- reviewing your business processes and financial and management systems
- testing the effectiveness of those systems
- discussing any problems and opportunities with you
- helping you to implement agreed solutions
The audit process often identifies areas where further detailed work may be required including tax planning and compliance in areas such as benefits in kind or VAT. We can bring in expert advisors from our specialist teams to review those areas and provide top quality advice accordingly.
