Assurance

Putting confidence at your fingertips

While many of the rules of business have changed, the fundamentals haven’t. Meeting investor expectations begins with the completeness, accuracy and fair presentation of information in your financial statements and disclosures.

The audit is key to sustaining confidence in both your company and the financial system at large. It must keep pace with a fast-evolving corporate reporting environment – one characterised by investor scepticism and the 24/7 scrutiny of corporate information, including non-financial information.

In addition to the audit of financial statements, our risk assurance practice helps management make well-informed decisions. The insight and independent assurance we bring provides an invaluable safeguard in today’s complex operating environment. We work with you in your boardrooms and back offices, helping you protect and strengthen every aspect of your business, from people to performance, systems to strategy, business plans to business resilience.

How we can work with you

Our assurance practitioners provide an extensive range of audit and assurance related services. We will determine the type and extent of the audit procedures required, depending on the risks and controls that have been identified. These procedures may include:

- Examining financial and accounting records, other documents, and tangible items such as plant and equipment

- Watching certain processes or procedures being performed

- Asking a range of questions - from formal, written questions to informal, oral questions - of a range of individuals in the organisation

- Obtaining written confirmations of certain matters - for example, asking a debtor to confirm the amount of their debt with the organisation

- Testing some of the organisation's internal controls

- Making judgement on significant estimates or assumptions that management made when they prepared the financial report
