In the interest of thoroughness we describe the usual audit process, in detail, as follows:
A pre-audit planning meeting
To detail the objectives of work required and draw up a mutually agreed timetable. We aim to involve you in the planning process and make sure you clearly understand our approach to your business. This ensures we cover any commercial areas that may be giving you cause for concern.
Including stock count and systems and management controls review. We regard the audit as an integral part of our ongoing relationship and not an isolated assignment.
The production of a post-audit, accounts and business review
Which details systems’ strengths and weaknesses and suggests new ways to develop your business and make savings. We help you to interpret the results and to understand any variations.
Production of Statutory Accounts
Within six weeks of starting the year end audit, ensuring that you receive meaningful information at the earliest opportunity. We ensure the audit is completed professionally, efficiently and accurately, leaving you to get on with running your business.
