Audit & assurance

While many consider a business audit as a statutory requirement, they hold much more value. At McBrides, we believe in maximising the benefits of audits as powerful tools for growth.

Beyond fulfilling regulatory obligations, a well-executed audit, combined with a comprehensive business risk assessment, can reveal untapped opportunities to boost profitability and streamline administrative processes. Audits are an opportunity to gain valuable insights and ensure that your internal controls and procedures are operating effectively.

Our expert team is equipped with the highest quality training,  supported by cutting-edge IT systems to ensure full compliance with the latest audit regulations.

Statutory and regulatory audit

Audits deliver independent evidence of the integrity of your accounts, providing reassurance to your customers, suppliers, actual (or potential) investors, banks and other finance providers. Our experienced team will discuss the requirements with you to provide a tailored approach to help minimise disruption to your business.

Audits should go beyond compliance, which is why we provide comprehensive reports that highlight areas where your systems and procedures can be enhanced. We will also identify risks and deliver valuable insights tailored to your circumstances.

While our findings may identify taxation issues, fraud and errors, they will also address general compliance matters, empowering you to make informed decisions to help drive your business forward.

Non-statutory audit

Even when an audit is not legally required, you might want to identify and address financial and system issues, have access to reliable information for critical decision-making, facilitate effective governance, as well as provide assurance to your stakeholders. Our experienced team will collaborate closely with you, agreeing on objectives and conducting the audit with care and consideration.

Assurance services

Assurance should be a transformative experience, offering you valuable insights and peace of mind.

This reporting method provides assurance to company directors greater than the traditional accountants’ report, and without the rigour and planning of a full audit report.

Our approach is based on developing an understanding of your business or organisation and the financial, operational and governance risks that it faces.

  • Charities and not for profit sector – from local to national, trusts, community interest and charitable companies covering welfare, faith, education, conservation and generation
