Communication and technology underpins our audit approach

Our audit approach and methodology is underpinned by technology, communication and collaboration to deliver an efficient and high-quality audit required.

With ongoing and increasing scrutiny of audit outcomes in Australia and globally, our experienced team bring value to you and your stakeholders by supporting your corporate governance frameworks, meeting your regulatory compliance reporting requirements and risk associated with this, while also not over-engineering compliance requirements for your size and structure.

We have a number of stringent quality and assurance policies in place that exceed both the legal regulatory standard, and the professional requirements outlined by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia. We enforce these rigorous measures to ensure that all work - irrespective of its nature - is consistently of the highest quality, reflective of our commitment to continually provide the highest standard of services to our clients.

Internal audit

Given the nature and volume of current and pending regulatory change, we apply a tailored approach to the needs and context in which our clients are operating in. In undertaking reviews, it is important to have an eye on current risks and strategic objectives in order to provide a forward looking focus. 

Our teams are able to provide a fully outsourced Internal Audit function for your business, or can work closely with an team member to support the delivery of an effective co-sourced Internal Audit program. This can be a very effective way to work with business owners and large private family groups to teach and embed best practice internal audit processes. We also work closely with organisations to establish a first-time internal audit function and successfully help their maturity during the time of our partnership; assisting to embed new practices, policies and frameworks.

Our experts have experience across all sectors, which assists with ongoing improvement, benchmarking and best practice ideas. Being able to add value and innovation comes through our approach with data analytics, understanding sector trends and emerging risks. With a longstanding reputation for delivering a partner-led team, we ensure that you receive the most efficient and cost-effective internal audit program.

Risk advisory services

Our specialised services are tailored to meet your specific strategic, operational, reputational, financial, regulatory and technology risk needs. Using international standards to ensure a risk-based methodology, we understand that better practices need to be practically applied and proportionate to the nature of the risk and your organisation’s risk appetite. We are highly experienced in engaging with stakeholders from the front line to the boardroom across all industry sectors.
