Whilst undertaking a robust and technically advanced audit, James Cowper Kreston will take the time to form a deep understanding of your business, looking way beyond the numbers to see what really makes the business tick. We will use the audit process as a platform to provide real business advice, helping you to grow and develop your business.
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.
- An audit will provide the stakeholders not directly involved in the day to day accounting function of the businesses the peace of mind that the numbers are accurate and processes and procedures are in place to minimise the potential for inaccurate accounting and in the worst case scenario, fraud.
