We’re one of the top 30 auditors in the UK

Creating value that makes a real difference to a client’s business – year after year – is intrinsic to our audit approach. The service we deliver matches strict compliance requirements without interfering with clients’ need to run a successful charity. This means minimising any disruption caused by the audit process, and maximising the potential to bring you meaningful insights on activities and financial controls within the organisation.

We submit ourselves to regular third party reviews as well as regulatory visits by the Quality Assurance Directorate (QAD). A tightly controlled system of audit licensing within our firm means that your audit will be performed by fully qualified and appropriately experienced audit specialists.

Our audit service is individually tailored to our clients, and we adopt a risk based approach. This allows us to concentrate on key issues to make the audit as efficient as possible. We have invested in some of the most advanced audit software available, which provides an audit-integrated tool for producing financial statements for charities and for undertaking data analytics.
