Audit & Assurance
Our audit and assurance services go well beyond helping clients meet their financial reporting obligations.
The Boroughs audit method focuses on delivering a timely and efficient audit, with our Partners taking a hands-on approach with clients through all aspects of the engagement.
There is a strong emphasis on adding value through identifying and communicating opportunities for strengthening internal controls, information systems, accounting and financial reporting with a consideration to practical and commercial applications.
Our team discusses the performance of assurance engagements with directors, management and other stakeholders to tailor processes that address specific business risks. Our services act as a powerful tool to complement corporate governance structures, delivering robust assurance services that address clients’ regulatory and other compliance needs. At the same time, we aim to ensure a delivery of service that provides excellent value for money.
