Why audit?
  • Small companies may expand and will find themselves subject to a statutory audit requirement.
  • We provide advice as to whether their accounts are prepared in accordance with the latest accounting standards.
  • These companies are still require to prepare and lodge their accounts in a statutory financial statement format, including relevant notes disclosure. Many smaller companies may not have the resources and knowledge to prepare them.
  • There is still a requirement to maintain proper accounting records and prepare financial statements that show a "true and fair view" in accordance with Financial Reporting Standards.
  • Smaller companies who prepare their own accounts may need help in arriving at certain adjustments, such as those for impairment assessment and depreciation.
  • Requirements by bank to audit for loan and  banking facilities financing.
