Statutory Audit

Our primary goal as statutory auditors is to render an opinion on the financial statements in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards.

In addition, we seek to add value to our attest services by effectively communicating the business implications of our audit results. For example, we may issue recommendation for areas of improvement for any deficiencies that we may discover in the audit process. We would also highlight areas of non-compliance to the management.

Benefits of Auditing

While not designed specifically for such, the auditing process may uncover significant fraud or errors. The audit of financial statement acts as a deterrent. Potential losses due to fraud usually far surpass the cost of an audit. We also highlight to the management significant weaknesses noted in existing systems of internal control. Such reporting to management facilitates continuous cost-effective improvements in internal controls which protects value and enhances the quality of accounting and financial reporting of the entity. Many companies including Small Medium Enterprise would want to have their financial statements audited; even they have the option not to have their accounts audited.

Internal Audit
