Audit & Assurance
Grubers Beckett uses only experienced relevant staff to undertake a cost-effective audit which brings additional benefits to your business.
AUDITs – “are designed to test the validity of the financial statements and can be considered as a type of assurance service. Under an assurance engagement, accountants can provide a variety of services ranging from information systems security reviews to customer satisfaction surveys.”
Our specialist audit team has had both national and international experience in senior positions in the larger accountancy practices. Members of the team have worked in Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Asia on multinational public listed companies, private companies, co-operatives, licensed clubs, superannuation funds, trust entities and other audit assignments.
In planning our audit assignment, we take great care to gain an intimate understanding of the operation of your business, the industry and the environment in which it operates. Based on this understanding, we assess controls and the risks of material misstatement of the financial reports, including those caused by fraud. We then design and perform our audit procedures to address those risks as they specifically relate to your business.
We also endeavour to match the needs of the assignment with personnel with the relevant audit experience. This causes minimal disruption to client’s staff as the audit personnel have a good working knowledge of the industry prior to the commencement of the audit.
The audit team, comprising of principals and managers who are directly and actively involved in the carrying out of the audit assignment, also have a good working knowledge of the tax system. This knowledge of the tax system allows them to appreciate any tax problem or tax planning opportunities that may arise during the audit.
