Financial Statement audit

There is no doubt that corporate failure in the past few years have stimulated debate about what went wrong and who was to blame. What is not up for debate is that there is more scrutiny and scepticism of a company’s financial statements than ever before.

Investors expect greater reliability, more oversight and clear evidence of internal controls. Corporate management, boards and audit committees, internal and external auditors, analysts and other investment professionals all have important roles to play in rebuilding investor trust.

Meeting investor expectations begins with the completeness and accuracy of information contained in a company’s financial statements.
