Adding benefitAudit

grudgingly

If you are a limited company and your turnover is greater than £5.6 million, then, unfortunately, you need an
Audit. Doesn't seem very fair but, in theory, it is designed to protect company shareholders. It sounds like
"spin" but at Probitts & Co we try and turn the audit (and expense) into a beneficial experience for
our clients.

how do we achieve this

If we already look after your books and prepare your accounts, then the Audit is an integral part of the process and is, therefore,
included in the basic package at no extra cost. If we are purely Auditors, we turn the whole process into an opportunity to give
the business a health check, complete with a full written report if required.

Team Playersthe team

All members of the Audit Team have been put through internal and external training courses and are expected
to be professional, polite and punctual at all times during the audit. Where possible, the same Team are used
for subsequent audits giving our clients the opportunity to build a rapport and help reduce repetitive learning
cycles which can often aggravate the client. Well, that's the theory!

meaningful information

A full review is made of all controls, and advice given where they can be improved. Repetitive tasks are highlighted and current
working practices are looked at with a view to help streamline the flow of information. Schedules are prepared of all key
expenditure and common suppliers are revived to determine if they offer the best value. An evaluation is carried out on the
current business system (manual or computerized) to determine if it meets current and anticipated demand.

fees

Similar to our other services, our Audit process is entirely configurable to your own requirements. Apart from the basic legal
responsibilities of the Audit,  you determine the extent of the health check. For example, you may choose to focus our energies
on one particular area of the business each year and move on to the next once you are satisfied that part of the business is
sound.

the end result

At the end of the audit, you should feel as if it was a worthwhile exercise, and the legal requirements, gave you an ideal
opportunity to expand the scope of the audit in the form of an annual health check. The whole process has been much
cheaper and less disruptive than if the health- check was carried out separately. If the process has given the business the
"thumbs up", then all well and good. Keep on doing the right things! However, if areas of the business are under performing,
then at least you will be in the position and armed with the best advice to do something about it! Either way, we hope you
come to view the Audit more as an opportunity than an unnecessary expense to the business.
