PCP Global Audit

The number of financial reporting and auditing standards along with the expected level of compliance are constantly increasing.

“The introduction of ISQM 1 has raised the bar even further and created additional difficulties for many small firms.”

This imposes a greater burden on accountancy practices that are competing to provide cost-effective audits while maintaining full compliance with audit regulation and standards.

We can assist accountancy practices to ensure that compliance issues are dealt with, while at the same time providing a cost-effective audit for clients.

We can conduct your annual audit compliance review or ISQM 1 review on your behalf. The review will consider the adequacy of your firm’s System of Quality Management whole firm procedures, and the quality and cost-effectiveness of audit files. During the course of the review, we will de-brief partners and staff as necessary. We will then follow-up with a detailed report.

Areas of particular concern will be highlighted to you by way of specific recommendations on key areas where improvement is necessary.

PCP Action Plan Drafting

The report will include comments and suggestions on the following areas:

• Weaknesses in System of Quality Management
• Adequacy of the firm’s risk assessment process
• Root cause analysis
• Adequacy of the firm’s monitoring and remediation process
• Adaptation of the audit approach under differing circumstances
• Quality of audit planning and independence considerations
• Effective use of analytical review
• Quantity and quality of CPD
• Techniques to ensure that sufficient audit evidence can be found on the files
• Other improvements to audit files and procedures

A comprehensive set of notes on each audit file reviewed will be included as an appendix to the report.

We can follow up our visit with a specific training session for the partners and staff on any areas of weakness, if required.

The price is on application. Please contact Michael at Michael@pcplimited.com or Margaret at Margaret@pcplimited.com to discuss your requirements.
