Audit & Assurance Reviews
Audit services for clarity, insight and direction
Our audit approach requires us to truly understand your business and identify the key areas of risk, both within your company and the market you operate in. Our audit team diligently review the underlying processes and controls that drive your financial reporting, using technical expertise to provide a robust audit within a set timetable we agree with you.
Highly respected and well connected
Our detailed audit planning processes include taking the time to understand how your systems work so that we can fully test them.
We also consider the threats and risks relevant to your industry.
Peace of mind for the future you’re working toward
We help you feel confident and secure about your company’s financial footing.
Our risked-based approach to auditing provides constructive feedback on your systems and controls. Our experience across a range of sectors, including those with specialist requirements, means that you receive appropriate guidance for your business.
Comprehensive services to support you
We spend time to really understand you, your business and your objectives. We undertake work to the highest standards while causing the least disruption to your day-to-day operations during the audit.
Our comprehensive audit approach will be tailored to consider whether your financial statements are reporting a true, fair view of your business, and provides scope for our specialists to suggest potential improvements to your systems and operations. We ensure all issues or concerns identified are handled sensitively and with a constructive, common sense approach.
Unlike an external audit, an internal systems audit is a service specifically tailored to your individual business requirements.
Our skilled team undertake a full in-depth review of the systems and processes within your organisation, together with any associated control procedures. From this we produce a report of our findings, highlighting any areas of strength and/or potential weakness, as well as our recommendations for improvement. This can cover a wide range of suggestions, from software alternatives to training opportunities for your team members.
Alternatively, we can concentrate on a particular area of concern and design appropriate testing in this area.
An assurance review provides readers of your financial statements with a certain level of comfort over the figures and information contained in these without requiring a full audit. Our team has a wealth of experience in conducting assurance reviews, giving your stakeholders the comfort of knowing your financial statements have been independently reviewed.
In addition to our corporate audit services, there are certain entities that have specialist audit or reporting requirements. Our team offer extensive experience and technical knowledge to support you if your organisation is one of the following:
· Travel agency or tour operator requiring ABTA & ATOL reporting
· Academy or school
· Charity and Not-for-Profit organisation
· Insurance broker or FCA regulated entities
· Pension schemes
· Construction, land or property business requiring service charge company accounts, ARLA or RICS reporting
· Law firms – requiring Solicitors Accounts Rules or Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) Accounts Code reporting
The friendliness and ease of interaction with all the employees of Rickard Luckin and the ability to accommodate our requirements within the tight deadlines set by our Japanese management makes the annual audit a seamless process , of which we are very thankful.
