The consistent raising of audit threshold requirements in the UK has positioned Cheshire Audit Accountants Afford Bond, in a niche market as an independent practice with a strong and varied audit expertise.

Many businesses shy away from their annual audit.  But an audit can provide a crucial opportunity.  Especially as the new audit exemption rules which were introduced in 2012 gave hundreds of smaller businesses the freedom to choose whether or not to submit their company to an annual audit.  But look at it as an opportunty and all of a sudden your annual audit becomes a great tool for a comprehensive business health check.  

An annual business audit can highlight where processes, costs and internal systems would benefit from a closer review.  And a professional and detailed business audit can often reveal where profitable changes can be made. Cheshire Audit accountants Afford Bond, one of the leading audit accountancy firms in the north west, are ideally placed to help you. In addition to audit compliance requirements, we will deliver a business audit conclusion which includes a focus on valuable commercial recommendations along with sound direction for internal systems and controls. Our auditing will equip you with the tools to take your business forward again.

This information can be an essential annual appraisal of the overall efficiency and robust nature of your structure and one which may be missed altogether without this annual requirement. The extensive skills we have in-house at each of our Afford Bond offices (in Nantwich, Wilmslow and Chester), can also be utilised for non-audit assignments in terms of appropriate controls and internal practices for both new and established businesses.

And even if you work with us on a statutory audit, we can offer professional audit support and advice to help you and your business take the next steps - often providing reassurance for shareholders, stakeholders and lenders.

As chartered audit accountants we have extensive experience with  audits for commercial entities, academies audits, solicitors audits, international and UK groups, not-for-profit organisations and charities audits. We understand how important it is to build strong professional relationships, which is why we try to ensure that the same team are used for subsequent audits giving you the opportunity to build a rapport whilst enabling our teams to increase their knowledge and understanding of your business and help reduce the need to ask the same questions year after year.  Why not contact our expert audit accountants in Nantwich, Wilmslow or Chester for a free and informal chat with one of our audit experts to see how we might work together?

Afford Bond Chartered Accountants have offices in Nantwich, Wilmslow and Chester.  Our key competences are accounts, audit, taxation, payroll and corporate finance and we see constant overlap in the delivery of these services demonstrating the need for qualified and experienced advisors.
