FINANCIAL STATEMENT AUDITS
A financial statement audit not only provides credibility and confidence to the financial statements, but also the identification of internal control deficiencies and other management issues that can help our clients in understanding and addresses key risks and challenges facing the business.
An audit often yields valuable information and helps ensure:
- Independent opinion on financial reporting information;
- Compliance with rules and regulations relating to the financial reporting process;
- Identification of internal control material weakness and system deficiencies; and
- Increased awareness of changing regulatory rules and accounting treatments.
Our financial statements audits are performed using the highest level of ethics, professionalism, discretion, and competence. We are constantly updated on International Standards on Auditing (“ISA”) that we utilise in the performance of our financial statement audits.
ISA is issued by the International Federation of Accountants (“IFAC”) through the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (“IAASB”) which establishes the highest level of auditing standards and is the de facto standard for performing financial statement audits.
Automated Audit Software to Ensure Accuracy and Efficiency
In addition, all of our financial statement audits utilise the Caseware® assurance software (a comprehensive assurance software tool utilised by the top international accounting firms is used in over 130 countries around the world including the Big 4 accounting firms) as our working papers supporting our audit reports.
This allowed us to truly automate our audit engagements while increasing accuracy and transparency of our audited financial statements and working papers.
