How we can help you

A lot of what we do in Assurance is about inspiring confidence and building trust – giving that added credibility to information exchanged in an increasingly transparent market.

You may be thinking of ways to improve the quality of your external financial reports, or working hard to adapt to new reporting requirements. What we try to do, beyond our reporting responsibility, is to share with you our insights and experience to ease you through the process. Whoever you may be, we make it a point to get to know you and your business, so that we can help you to better prepare for the future.

Our services go beyond statutory and compliance matters. The call for greater transparency, improved corporate governance and better business agility and resilience, has allowed us to foster new, rewarding relationships with our clients.

We currently serve many leading companies listed on Bursa Malaysia and emerging Malaysian multinational and growing businesses. Explore further to learn about what we can do to help you.

Audits

One of the foundations in building trust in our capital markets is for businesses to present complete, accurate and fairly presented financial information of their performance. This need is even more imperative today with the onslaught of corporate scandals.

Our audit helps assure that you’ve at least met the reporting expectations of your stakeholders. What’s more is the value that comes with our audit process: advice on controls and processing system weaknesses, and confirmation of accounting treatments on complex transactions, for example.

Find out how we blend compliance and value.

Reviews

The market’s expectations for reliable information go beyond the annual financial statements. Your interim financial results matter too.

We maintain the same level of professional scepticism as during an audit, and we ask management the right questions and perform analytics on their financial information. What you’ll get out of the review is the comfort that you’ve presented your results fairly. More importantly, the review highlights issues that concern you at an early stage, so that they don’t impede your year end financial reporting.

Attestation

We act as your independent accountants to report factual findings on specific matters that concern you. What we do really depends on your needs. And it is often based upon procedures that we’ve agreed with you before we start our work.

Examples of when you’d need our service:

  • You’re asked by the regulator to submit your licence fee payable, certified by an independent party
  • Your banker needs third party assurance on certain financial statement line items as collateral for a loan that you’re looking to get
  • You want to be sure that your KPI is reported and compiled properly
  • You have concerns about your payroll operations, and want to make sure that your HR people have complied with the standard procedures

Talk to us. Chances are we’re able to help you on more occasions than these.

Systems & Process Assurance (SPA)

Today’s businesses rely heavily on financial information systems for external and management reporting. You may have thought about some of these questions when you’re using the information:

  • Has the financial data been tampered with?
  • Is the system generating numbers that are complete and accurate?
  • Is the company’s data well-managed?
  • Are the IT controls in compliance with good practices? If they’re not, how can we improve?
