Assurance services

Many businesses need to provide comfort to investors and other stakeholders on their financial performance, even where a full audit is considered unnecessary or inappropriate - or is not required by law.

You may need to support key statements, assumptions and disclosures in your entity’s financial statements or consider the suitability of established accounting policies following a significant change in the business. You may also require a wider review of the operation of your finance function.

Commissioning cost-effective and focused assurance reviews on key areas of importance to your business, without the expense of a full audit, can be a major benefit in a variety of these situations, particularly for entrepreneurial businesses looking to scale up.

Meeting your needs

  • Cost effective

    Our assurance review service, ROBUST (Review of Balances, Underlying Statements and Transactions), allows tailored and cost-effective examination of critical or important areas of your financial reporting systems and processes, without the expense of a full audit.

  • Tailored

    ROBUST provides focused levels of enquiry, giving comfort to management, as well as investors and other stakeholders (if required) in relation to the entity’s financial information.

  • Objective

    ROBUST gives you the peace of mind that comes from having an external review. It can also help give you easier access to finance, or finance on better terms, by demonstrating accuracy of critical financial areas.
