What is audit and assurance?

Assurance services are independent professional services that focus on reviewing a business financial situation, and presenting that information in a way that will help key company stakeholders make more informed decisions. The goal is to help reduce risk and provide professional opinions on how to optimise your systems.  Audits are a type of assurance service. They are retrospective, independent reports on the validity of the assertions in your financial statements, that are usually carried out by a team of auditors at a client’s premises. Auditors will assess the client’s systems and financial records for accuracy, honesty and risk. All audits conducted by J.

Benefits of Audit and Assurance

Regularly reviewing your financial systems is vital to ensure the ongoing success of your business. Assurance and audit services helps to identify weaknesses in your accounting systems, and allows us to provide suggestions for improvements, specific to your organisation.

Our professional accounting advice can add real financial benefits to your business. We can let you know how efficiently your business is running, what margins can be expected, and how these can be achieved. We can make suggestions on everything from how you can tighten internal controls to how to improved your tax planning. This in turn helps to reduce the risk of fraud and errors caused by poor accounting.

An audit also has the benefit of providing assurance to company directors and stakeholders, who are not usually involved in the accounting function, that your business is running smoothly and in accordance with the reports they are receiving. Furthermore, our assurance services can enhance the credibility and reliability of the figures being submitted to prospective investors. If you are planning on attracting investment or selling shares in the next three years, carrying out regular audits is highly beneficial.
