Without the necessary assurances, businesses cannot be confident that they have the right level of governance and risk management.
Accurate information is crucial for making business decisions and business leaders need assurances beyond those provided by financial statement audits. Deciding which risks to take can be a challenging task. It can be even more difficult if there are concerns about systems or processes that are inaccurate, ambiguous or even unknown. Without the necessary assurances, businesses cannot be confident that they have the right level of governance and risk management.
We follow detailed risk management procedures designed to safeguard the professionalism and independence of our internal and external Audit teams, a matter which we take very seriously.
