Audit and assurance

While we recognise that your audit might be a necessary part of meeting compliance requirements, at JW Hinks, we also understand the benefits that a professional audit report can provide for your business; as unequivocal evidence of the integrity of your accounts. This can have a positive impact on enhancing the future prospects of your business to investors, banks and also your customers.

Our highly qualified and dedicated team of professionals work with you to thoroughly get to know your business and, through the process of the audit, can identify and implement opportunities for improvement that can enhance the running of your company through a range of cost saving and efficient solutions. This process could also be an opportunity for our experts to offer additional advice to help with comprehensive tax planning and wealth preservation in the future.

Where a statutory audit is not required, we provide an Assurance report which provides a lower level review but still satisfies the needs of your organisation.

In addition to our auditing services, we can also help with the accounting and regulatory aspects necessary to the lifecycle of a business. This includes the preparation of statutory accounts, group accounts and consolidated reporting packages, calculating corporate tax liabilities, providing company secretarial support, identifying tax planning opportunities and offering advice on future business structures.

Our range of core audit services comprise of the following areas:

  • Statutory audits – this a traditional audit carried out in accordance with International Auditing Standards for a variety of sectors and legislation
  • Voluntary audits and assurance work – this is a full audit carried out in accordance with International Auditing Standards enhancing the accountability and integrity of management
  • Due diligence – if you are intending to acquire a new business this serves to confirm all the material facts needed to secure an acquisition
  • Specialist audits – these are audits for specialist assignments which may include client money reports for financial services companies, or audit of UK subsidiaries of foreign controlled companies

We fully appreciate the importance of keeping up with the latest regulatory and technical changes and as part of our ongoing commitment to a high quality performance, we are committed to keeping our clients up to date too.
