Auditing & Reporting

What does a financial auditor do?

The requirement for an audit is set out by The Companies Act 2006 and the scope of audit work undertaken is set out by the Auditing Standards Board, the purpose of which is to produce an Audit Report addressed to the shareholders that forms part of the statutory financial statements.  The Audit Report confirms that the financial statements give a true and fair view.  This gives confidence to the shareholders that the accounts presented by the Board of Directors are reliable.

If your:

  • Turnover is in excess of £10.2m
  • Assets exceed £5.1m
  • Have more than 50 employees on average
  • Articles or shareholders request an audit

Then you need an audit.  This can ONLY be conducted by a Statutory Registered Auditor.
