Audits and Keeping Accounts
01 August 2016
Read our guide to keeping accounts and how an audit can benefit your business.
An audit is an official inspection of a company or organisation’s accounts by an independent body.
A company can choose to be audited in order to prove to its investors or shareholders that its accounts are sound.
An external audit should also determine whether all financial reporting is in accordance with current accounting standards and legislation.
If a company ensures that its accounts, reporting and record keeping are in accordance with legal requirements, an audit should not be too taxing a process.
