There is an increasing demand for all businesses to demonstrate that they have appropriate controls in place to manage potential risks. At Harold Sharp we have an experienced audit team who offer a range of services to help you manage the multitude of risks to your business. As well as ensuring you meet your statutory requirements, we use the audit process to review your financial and management systems, offering advice and solutions to help improve your business performance.
Our Audit and Assurance services include:
- External audit

Non statutory audit
Not all businesses are obliged by law to have an audit. Nonetheless, many choose to have an audit because of the commercial benefits. For example, should you wish to sell your business, a clear understanding of your financial position can help you get the best price. An audit can also help your case if you need to access finance and keep insurers happy. Plus, you will have the reassurance of knowing exactly how your business is performing.
If your business is required by law to have an audit, you will enjoy all the same commercial benefits detailed above. You can gain valuable insights from the detailed information produced, and use this to refine your business and maximise profits.
