As many private companies expand they utilise audit services to ensure
sufficient safeguards exist within their organisation and that their
financial reports are correctly and transparently prepared.
This helps build confidence within the board as well as with financial institutions.
In the post-GFC business world many banks and lending institutions are
reluctant to lend money to small or medium enterprises.
Indeed, the majority of lenders want a combination of hard security
(balance sheet strength) and most importantly consistent income
and profit figures (profit and loss).
Having your financial reports audited by an independent audit firm can
improve your ability to obtain and utilise debt finance.
In situations where several directors or board members have specialties in
different areas of the business it is imperative that all Directors are able to trust
that the financials being provided represent a complete view of the business.
An independent audit report showing the strengths and weaknesses of the
processes and procedures behind the preparation of the financial statements
increases the trustworthiness and usefulness of the financial reports.
