Audit and assurance services are often seen as a necessary evil rather than a valuable opportunity to benefit the business. We see things differently.

The analysis work involved in an audit is a great springboard to consider wider business risks and benefits and there’s no doubt that the rigours of an audit process will encourage your team to make sure that everything is recorded and kept up to date.

We perform around 200 annual audits. Our experience and expertise mean your business will be in safe hands.

Our service is bespoke to each client and their specific needs and requirements.

We’ve got all our technical ducks in a row

  • We’re registered with the ICAEW to carry out audit work

  • We use the latest auditing tools and systems

  • Our team have specialist training (updated each year)

Audit & Assurance service - Sagars Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers

Alongside regular company and LLP audits, we’ve also got the expertise to do specialist audits, such as:

  • Solicitors’ Accounts Rules
  • Charities and non-profit organisations
  • Pension schemes
  • Insurance brokers
  • ATOL holders

Whilst Audit and assurance involves a lot of historical checks, we believe supporting a business’s future success is important too.

We’ll let you know how the company’s systems and control environment is looking, provide invaluable insights to business owners and make suggestions for improvements where appropriate.

At Sagars, we listen to your plans and help you to consider:

  • What “the numbers” actually mean; what’s important to you and your business
  • What else you should be thinking about beyond the numbers
  • What the possibilities for the future might be

Over recent years the audit exemption criteria have been increasing. The latest increase to the audit exemption criteria has been in place for years that begin on or after 1 January 2016. Other changes announced in September 2012 had an impact on subsidiary companies.

We’ve produced a handy download to highlight the thresholds and provide some further points for consideration to enable you to understand if you meet the exemption criteria and help you to decide how to react.
