What is an audit and do I need one?

An audit is the external examination of a organisation's financial statements by someone independent, normally a Chartered or Certified Accountant and Registered Auditor.

By law, a company requires an audit when it has two of the following:

- Turnover in excess of £10.2m

- Gross assets in excess of £5.1m

- More than 50 employees

There may be other scenarios when a company requires an audit and transitional years are treated slightly differently.

Many organisations will opt for an audit even if they do not require one by law as a statutory audit provides a much higher level of scrutiny. If you would like to discuss your needs and our approach to audits please get in touch.
