Statutory Auditing | McMillan Woods Audits Limited

Statutory Audit

Statutory audits are legally required to review the accuracy of a company's financial records. The purpose of a statutory audit is the same as the purpose of any other type of audit: to determine whether an organisation is providing a fair and accurate representation of its financial position by examining information such as bank balances, bookkeeping records, and financial transactions.

Who needs to complete a Statutory Audit?

Your company must have an audit if at any time in the financial year it's been:

  • A public company (unless it is dormant)
  • A subsidiary company (unless it qualifies for an exception)
  • An authorised insurance company or carrying out insurance market activity
  • Involved in banking or issuing e-money
  • A Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) investment firm or an Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) management company
  • A corporate body and its shares have been traded on a regulated market in a European state

As seen above, not all businesses need an audit, but that does not mean you should not get one done. If you are a growing business or considering a sale/merger, a voluntary audit could help identify areas of risk, highlight the potential improvement in your business, and make you more appealing to investors.

Internal Audit

If you want to improve your performance and ensure good corporate governance, you need an independent, objective and rigorous audit of your business. You also need one that is geared towards understanding your goals and ambitions, and that supports you to achieve them.

Our audit and assurance team offer a fresh approach to internal audit. Our risk-based approach positions the audit in the context of your own risk management framework, making it into a cornerstone of governance. We work with your Board to develop a deep understanding of your business's financial, operational and governance risks, and to deliver a clear, tailored and practical report, free from lengthy disclaimers.

We typically work with our clients to provide:
  • A fully outsourced internal audit service
    Where we will oversee all of your internal audit function and requirements, helping to identify and manage risks; or
  • A co-sourced internal audit service
    Where we bolster your existing internal audit function with experienced internal auditors, to help fill any resource and knowledge gaps.

Our team are here to help boost value, efficiencies, and strength of internal controls and help future proof any organisation against their most significant risks.
