Audit Services – External & Internal Audit
One of the Firm’s core activities relates to auditing, in particular external auditing. An audit enables a
client to rest assured that its financial reporting system is reliable. Financial statements are the main source of accountability of management performance by the company’s shareholders. As management is reponsible for the accounting function and ultimately the preparation of financial statements, the shareholders then have to rely on external audit verification in order to obtain reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatements and can therefore be relied upon. Apart from being a statutory requirement, an audit also assists clients in ensuring that proper controls are in place and assists the procedure to obtain external finance amongst others. Our audit team is made of highly qualified and experienced individuals, which guarantees a professional service, in a timely manner suiting all client requirements. In addition to external audit, our team can also assist in internal audit assignments.
