CASE STUDIES

Nothing excites us more than getting to know a new client and conducting an audit that’s of genuine use to them. Here are some of the people we’ve helped.

RIGOUR WITHOUT DISRUPTION

Problem: How to save a client in the engineering sector time and money while delivering a rigorous, challenging audit.

Solution: Clear guidance on what we expected from the client, a proforma explaining the audit schedule, taking time to document their processes and organisation structure, and audit visits timed to avoid disruption to day-to-day business.

“We spent less time on site than their previous auditors, causing less interruption. Crucially, all of this meant lower audit fees.”

AUDIT WITH ADDED VALUE

Problem: Providing assurance to shareholders in a food distribution business made wary by previous off-the-peg audits.

Solution: A tailored audit focused on the highest-risk areas of the business, based on an analysis of the size of the audit area, systems and internal controls and the overall performance and financial position of the client.

“At the AGM, we answered questions from shareholders alongside the FD. They found our report more reliable and, ultimately, better value.”
