Allocating time and/or appointing someone, like the chief financial officer or Manage employment relations personal, to ensure any documents that had a financial impact, good or bad, on your business in the last year, will come in handy in guiding your auditor.

As auditors, we’re trying to help your business do better, and make decisions that alleviate financial stress. Being patient and setting aside time to answer the auditor’s questions will keep you informed on the progress of the audit as well as keep it moving toward the finish line. It’s also important to know there will be follow up when we leave your office, so it could be a few weeks before the audit is completely done.

Although your audit requires some work, the paybacks are abundant. The audit not only assesses your overall financial condition, but can also identify complications with financial management and financial reporting, which can help to identify ways to reduce risk and strengthen internal controls.
