Audit and Assurance

Audit and Assurance

Providing assurance and certainty

Accurate and transparent financial information is essential in an ever-changing world of economic uncertainty.  Directors, boards and audit committees all have a responsibility to their stakeholders to provide financial information that is generated from a robust internal environment.

Evaluating and promoting a good control environment

A Bentleys audit will provide you and your stakeholders confidence in the numbers. Our experienced audit team will first discuss your needs and explain legislative requirements. We then deliver a well-planned, executed and communicated audit.

Using the latest risk-based audit methodology and software, we offer efficient and cost-effective audit and assurance services including:

  • preparing financial statement audits (positive opinion)
  • preparing financial statement reviews (negative opinion)
  • formulating agreed-upon procedures
  • providing compliance opinions
  • reviewing your internal control environment
  • reviewing your corporate governance
  • managing enterprise risk
  • investigating fraud (forensic accounting)
  • assessing due diligence
  • providing probity reviews.
For all your audit and assurance needs, contact a Bentleys Advisor today.
