Audit

People often think of an audit as just a legal requirement or necessary evil, but actually it can turn out to be a valuable tool. Beyond the need to meet statutory obligations or provide assurance to a third party, it can provide you – as a business owner – with a health check on the state of your company.

At Barlow Andrews, we provide a cost-effective service, but still ensure that a partner leads the audit team. Our staff are highly experienced and qualified. What’s more, they receive formal training from external experts, which helps them to conduct a robust business review and report on the effectiveness of your accounting systems and controls.
