Audit & Assurance

Audit & Assurance, financial statements, audit, financial reporting,

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 engagement with directors, management and other stakeholders to tailor processes that address specific business risks.

At the same time, we aim to ensure a delivery of service that provides excellent value for money.
