We will explain our audit process at the outset so that you know what to expect and when to expect it, and we keep you informed throughout so that there are no surprises.

Importantly, we do everything we can to avoid frequent changes in staff on assignments. Our partners and staff therefore will become part of your team, retaining our objectivity and independence but able and available to identify opportunities to assist you to grow and develop.

We will also keep in touch with you throughout the year. In this way we can keep up to date on matters which impact upon your business and we can be kept abreast of your developments. Indeed we encourage you to send us your management accounts regularly. That way, most issues can be addressed as they arise and resolved in advance of the audit.
