Whilst audits are a statutory requirement in many of the jurisdictions in which we operate, in others, they are not. We find many clients still request audits in those locations for a variety of reasons, such as to ensure that their affairs are correctly managed. Those clients often find that the local management’s knowledge of and involvement in the audit process often engenders stronger corporate governance and re-emphasises the importance of the entity’s controls.
Where the expense of a full financial statement or systems audit cannot be readily justified, we also regularly undertake limited scope procedures focused on those areas of higher risk which we and our clients identify as benefiting from enhanced external scrutiny.
At Rawlinson & Hunter, we do not treat the audit merely as a statutory obligation. We try to involve our client in the audit process and, like all of our services, our audits are partner-led, ensuring our clients benefit from our extensive business advisory experience.
If you require an audit or other assurance support for statutory or other reasons whether for a listed company, an entrepreneurial start-up or a trust structure, we believe that the Rawlinson & Hunter personal approach to delivering these services can bring value to your business.
Audit work in most jurisdictions is a regulated activity and can only be carried out by certain firms within the Rawlinson & Hunter International grouping of firms. Refer to Legal for further information regarding Rawlinson & Hunter International.
