A well-conducted audit can generate ideas for reducing waste, tightening controls and spotting financial trouble before it occurs. GCI Advisors are Licensed Public Accountants and will conduct the audit of your financial statements as independent auditors in accordance with Canadian Auditing Standards.
When is an Audit engagement required?
Depending on the type of industry your business operates in, an audit may be mandated by regulators. In other instances an audit can be useful in providing assurance to the board or shareholders that are not involved in the day-to-day operations of a company.
In some cases, businesses may require additional assurance relating to their business operations. A special purpose report can assist you in delivering tailored information for specific audiences, for instance to demonstrate compliance with regulations or agreements.
If you are considering a future sale of your company, having audited financial statements of your business for past years are a source of assurance to future potential buyers.
