Audit & IFRS Conversion

The stakeholders and decision-makers in a business must have confidence in its financial systems. With a heightened focus on risk management and corporate governance, it is more important than ever for companies to obtain robust advice and assurance on financial controls and accounts; not just as part of the annual audit cycle, but on an ongoing basis, and particularly when undertaking transactions. Our emphasis is on the quality of our work and the quality of our advice, both of which we ensure through in-house technical updates, training, recruitment and quality control processes.

Financial Statements Audit – Our approach starts with a comprehensive understanding of the industry and business risks faced by our clients. We then deliver a seamless and efficient audit to ensure that financial statements are in line with the latest financial reporting standards. As part of our commitment that an audit should evolve past its traditional role, we also aim to provide value-added insights to our client’s business through our audit process.

IFRS Reporting – In cooperation with our global network firms, we have the expertise to provide reports in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Internal Audit - Operation & C

Internal audit is an important and integral tool for management, finance and operations functions in any company, and most successful businesses have internal audit functions. An effective internal audit requires planning, experience and sound methodology, all developed in concert with corporate finance, human resources and the current situation of the business.
