Financial statement audit

The audit:
From compliance to insight
Beyond compliance.
 

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.

Quality, consistency, independence and insight

Not only does your audit help assure compliance with applicable reporting standards, there are important by-products of the audit process such as the identification of internal management issues and important insights that can help you address both present and future challenges. 

That’s because we approach your audit with a deep and broad understanding of your business, the industry in which you operate, and the latest regulatory standards. We consider the risks your company faces, the way management controls these risks and the transparency of your company's reporting to stakeholders.
