Having independent and unbiased confirmation of the businesses financial position and processes are useful for a variety of reasons:

  • An audit adds to the reliability and credibility to the published financial statements. This may be particularly useful to potential purchasers if the business owner(s) are planning to sell the business in the next few years.
  • Undertaking an audit will enable your advisors to measure and offer advice on the businesses Key Performance Indicators which will have real benefit to the running, and profitability, of the business going forward.
