Audit and Assurance

banner image

Some businesses need a statutory audit because of their size or industry, whereas others want the peace of mind that comes from outside assurance. We offer a full range of services to give you the right level of support.

Accountant's Report

This standard report gives the most basic level of assurance. It shows that the accounts are presented in accordance with relevant legislation and are prepared by an external firm. However, it gives no assurance over the figures in the financial statements.

Assurance Review

An Assurance Review sits between a full audit and an Accountant's Report. The scope of an Assurance Review does not include verification procedures as in a full audit, but does include:

  • discussions with management about the accounting treatment of key items
  • detailed analytical review of results and balance sheet
  • consideration of the appropriateness of the accounting policies and their application

The scope doesn't allow the reviewer to give an opinion on whether the accounts give a true and fair view. Instead, the report notes whether anything has come to the reviewer’s attention that suggests the accounts are not true and fair. This is known as “negative assurance”.

More details on limited assurance reviews can be found on the ICAEW’s website.
