Some of our Services

Audits

Statutory audits are required under the Corporations Act 2001 and Co-operatives Act 1992 to name the two main reasons.

There are other relevant regulations which also require audits for varying reasons. Our experience with industries is very broad allowing us to identify our client's compliance needs.

Within our region our client's range from Clubs through to privately owned companies and not-for-profit entities.

Reviews

Generally reviews are for smaller companies including not-for-profits which enable less detailed lower level assurance for the entity.

Typically these smaller companies and not-for-profit entities come under the Corporations Act 2001 but do not have the turn over or technical needs of a larger entity in the same industry.

Acquittals

Some not-for-profit entities require an audit under funding agreements that would normally not require an audit.

As an example Trust Accounts (Solicitors and Real Estate Agents) and Indigenous Corporations and Funding.

This type of audit requires a very specific level of knowledge and it is important to choose an Audit Team with demonstrated experience in this area.

Internal Audits

These are one of additional services that support our clients to create sound strategies, increased capabilities and general improvements to their day to day operations. We are also able to provide services to non-audit clients.

These services can be provided as a one off or on a recurring basis.
