Professional Audits

Gain the reassurance of an expert independent view of your financial situation


Fast, efficient auditing

Our friendly and expert Hertfordshire team makes audits fast, easy and beneficial to your business.

We deliver audits on time, on budget, with team continuity and providing minimal disruption to your business.  We explain what to expect, and then we carry out the audit as planned.

We have a well-established and experienced team, backed by robust internal processes.  Our accounting software, and understanding of accounting systems, is excellent.

We offer specialist audits for charities and solicitors which meet the requirements of management, regulators and stakeholders.

Business benefits

The audit report adds credibility to the company accounts with third parties such as lenders, customers, suppliers and potential shareholders.

Businesses and charities of a certain size and specific legal and financial concerns are obliged to audit their accounts.  Many smaller organisations which are exempt from the legal obligation to conduct an audit choose to do so due to the benefits they bring.


We review your financial controls and management systems to help you identify risks and how best to minimise them. We help you recognise potential risks to your business and put preventative measures in place.

Audit services for charities

We provide audit services and independent examinations to charities. This type of independent assessment is important to demonstrate to donors that their money is used well. Audit services are provided in line with legal requirements. 

These services are also provided to charities which do not have a legal obligation but do choose to provide added reassurance and transparency to stakeholders with an objective, independent assessment of their financial situation.
