Singapore-incorporated companies are required to conduct statutory audits in accordance with the Companies Act, unless they are exempted from doing so. Under our statutory audit services, we will review of your financial records to determine whether they represent a true, accurate and fair view of your financial affairs. For every engagement, we use dynamic tools and rely on our deep technical skill sets to test the reliability of your financial statements. We adopt a risk-based approach by understanding your business environment, evaluating items that have the highest risks and assessing the impact of those risks.
A non-statutory audit is not compulsory by law. However, entities such as charitable organisations, sole proprietors, partnerships, clubs and associations can carry out a non-statutory audit to establish credibility amongst their stakeholders or clients. Under our non-statutory audit services, we will conduct an objective assessment of your business affairs. Besides financial reporting, non-statutory audits can also cover other areas of your business such as your IT system, accounting system and management structure. They are useful in identifying whether your business is running efficiently. In our review, we will also help you to identify weaknesses and gaps that arise and provide recommendations to address areas of concern.
We conduct due diligence for companies planning to embark on an M&A exercise. We can work for buyers, lenders or sellers to evaluate all aspects of the transaction including risks, opportunities, financial metrics, earnings projections, strategic fit and legal issues. By assessing the financial realities and potential synergies of the deal, our clients will be better able to make more informed investment decisions.
Companies need to maintain effective internal controls to mitigate risks such as fraud and error. You need to constantly review your systems of internal control to adapt to changing trends, goals, priorities and threats. We can help to evaluate whether you have adequate and appropriate internal controls in place to manage your risks. If we identify weaknesses in your systems, we will make practical recommendations to address those gaps so that you can operate more efficiently.
