Many businesses must undergo an annual audit in order to fulfil statutory obligations. At George Hay, our experienced auditors can help you meet all your audit obligations and add real value to the process.
We go a step further when carrying out your audit, by turning what many businesses view as a regulatory burden into a useful review of your financial statements, helping to inform your decision-making and forward planning.
We will keep you informed throughout every stage of the audit process and we will deliver audit reports and management reports designed to help you improve your business, ensuring that your internal controls and systems run effectively and efficiently.
Businesses may also require an audit to ensure they satisfy the requirements of a grant they have received. Our specialist grant auditors can carry out the necessary audit of grant spending and provide all the appropriate documentation in a timely manner to meet each particular funding provider’s requirements.
Businesses that do not require a statutory audit or grant audit may also choose to undergo a voluntary audit, for example to satisfy lenders when sourcing funding, or to demonstrate credibility to shareholders and other stakeholders or to strengthen financial discipline within the business. A voluntary audit could also be useful to interested parties, such as potential purchasers, in the event of an exit from the business.
