Assurance & business advisory
We act as auditors of historical financial statements, both under statutory and non-statutory appointments.
As our firm grew from an auditing background, we have a very strong audit division which provides efficient, cost effective and high quality services to all our clients, big and small. We perform our audits in accordance with international standards on auditing, which we ensure all our audit staff are adequately trained in.
To further enhance the level of compliance with international audit quality control standards, we have made a firm commitment to adopt AuditSoft, Mazars’ internally developed audit software, in our audit assignments in 2009.
In performing our audit services, we set out to understand all aspects of our client’s business so as to enable us to plan thoroughly the nature, extent and timing of our audit procedures. Our approach is to understand and evaluate our client’s business, including the environmental factors affecting the business and its accounting systems.
Our understanding of our client’s business enables us to advise clients on matters which we consider may increase profitability, or tax efficiency. On completion of our audit, it is our practice to write to clients to inform them of such matters, as well as any matters of governance interest, which include our recommendations for improving internal controls, systems and operating procedures.
Because of the close involvement of partners, directors and senior staff in all audit assignments, our audit becomes an important management tool which leads to greater efficiency and profitability.
Apart from audit, we also prepare Accountants' Reports for listings on local and overseas stock exchanges, as well as for issuance of bonds and private debt securities. Over the years, we have prepared numerous Accountants’ Reports for listings on Bursa Malaysia and, more recently, the AIM Market of the UK in collaboration with Mazars, UK.
