Audit and Assurance Services

Statutory audits

Our aim is to turn this statutory burden into a benefit for you by viewing it as an opportunity to identify and flag key areas of risk and to improve your internal systems where needed. We use the process to gain a thorough understanding of your business, enabling us to be even more effective in the other services we provide you.

Specialised audits

Alongside the corporate audits we also provide assurance services required in the following sectors:

  • Academy schools
  • Charities
  • Estate agents
  • FCA client asset and client money
  • LLPs
  • LPs
  • Pension schemes
  • Private schools
  • Solicitors

Bespoke Reviews

We can also undertake ad hoc review assignments for you over specific aspects of your business such as costing systems, revenue recognition, forecasting procedures and cashflow forecasts.

Due Diligence

Often forming part of an overall growth strategy, our due diligence services include:

  • Reports for banks
  • Reports for client acquisitions
  • Health checks for companies preparing for sale
  • Due diligence relating to specific project finance

Financial Reporting

  • Statutory Accounts Preparation
  • Management Information

Accurate financial reporting is critical to the success of your business and we provide you with financial information that is accurate, timely and relevant.

We help you to interpret this information correctly so that you can focus on the key issues for developing your business and identify potential areas of risk to prevent problems further down the line.

We also help you to put systems in place so that you have the ability and convenience of generating this information in-house.


Taxation Compliance

  • Corporation Tax Returns in full iXBRL compliance
  • Personal Tax Returns
  • Employee Returns

Essentially, compliance is the correct recording of your tax liabilities and we will help you to understand the different options and formats available to you according to your trading structure.

HMRC are increasingly moving filing requirements online so we will help you to keep track of these and to meet your specific deadlines throughout the year.

Our systems enable personal tax and employee returns to be automatically generated online and we can also reduce the potential of a rejection or enquiry by HMRC through our investment in iXBRL. This means the accounts and computations we generate automatically comply with HMRC’s new tagging system which came into force on 1st April 2011.
