Audit & Assurance Services

Audit-N-Assurance-Services

The advances made in communications & technology has led to a more globalized market and companies today must embrace this rapid change. While globalization has increased opportunities for businesses, it has also exposed them to risk at every turn. The business environment today thus, requires a skill set that enables the companies to operate across cultures within India and abroad.

Owing to this, reactions to the lack of transparency in businesses have also grown significantly. This has compelled organisations to make a paradigm shift in their business structures as well as in the accuracy of the information gathered by them; moving from the Industrial Age towards a more Knowledge Age. The criticality and the relevance of information is impacted not only by its content, but also by the timeliness and efficiency with which it is used. Thus making it imperative for the audit and assurance model to keep pace with it.

Our high-powered team of more than 20 motivated professionals, with a combined experience of more than 150 man-years, has redefined the way our clients view audit and compliance. A more holistic approach to our model that fits the Knowledge Age compared to the traditional one-size- fits-all approach is the primary driver of our success.

We are sector-agnostic and strive to ensure consistent value addition for our clients. Besides ensuring statutory compliances and reporting on financial statements, we provide expert opinion and insights about areas such as internal controls, legal interpretations, processes and polices and risk management. This brings about a more realistic picture for clients to improve their business practices. Our audit practice has been subjected to peer review process of ICAI since inception i.e. since last 12 years.

Our systemic approach to reporting, and providing relevant and authentic solutions enables clients to make better decisions through up-to- date information on value drivers, business objectives and success factors. We go beyond the call of duty by converting audit and compliance services into a profit centre for clients. We achieve this through a continuous process of simplifying the complexities and providing authentic solutions to mitigate risks, which in many cases helps save money for clients.

Statutory Audit

Audit-N-Assurance-Services

Businesses have traditionally seen statutory audits as a burden. With rapid changes in the environment, skepticism is at an all-time high and so are stakeholder expectations. We go beyond mere statutory compliance. Our clients’ audited statements have not only withstood detailed and stringent scrutiny, but have also become pillars of transparency.

We pride ourselves in providing qualitative suggestions, inputs and insights based on our sound technical knowledge & experience.

We proactively keep clients abreast of the latest updates and trends to keep pace with their dynamic requirements. We have sound research capabilities for proper interpretation & application of various Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

Investigation Services

Globalisation has increased competition and this has given rise to a fierce market place where organizations are constantly fighting each other to gain the upper hand. And whilst organizations focus on winning the race over their competition, the situation has also given rise to fraud and misconduct which may not only drain out significant financial resources from an organization but also damage reputations and put the overall public trust in the marketplace at risk.

Our experienced team of professionals have helped organizations, where their critical fact finding suggests a need, to conduct internal investigations or to examine allegations of wrongdoing.

Our eye for detail investigation has helped various organizations identify critical indicators and red flag areas for evidence gathering. Our ability to understand the mindset, go beyond & behind the reason for the fraud and employ investigation methodologies that are in sync with the legal strategy has helped organizations reduce the damage caused.

Unfortunately, fraud and misconduct can seriously undermine such efforts, exposing an organisation to legal, regulatory, or reputational damage. Over the last 50 years, we have built a strong reputation of being able to successfully guide our clients out of various situations, particularly when the level of scrutiny is high and the margin for error is low.

Our focus has been to provide a strong safety net for preventing frauds by accurately mapping risk controls and gaps.
