Audit and assurance

For many businesses a financial audit is a legal requirement. Debates about transparency, independence and better corporate governance are likely to influence the provision of audit services in many countries over the coming years.

RSM’s member firms’ approach to audit is clear and consistent. It requires the rigorous standards of professional competence, independence and objectivity that clients rightly demand, yet still recognises that the auditor is uniquely placed to give constructive advice to the client regarding its business.

By applying a risk based audit methodology (that is in compliance with International Standards on Auditing (ISA’s) and is regularly updated for new technical pronouncements and guidance on best practices), RSM member firms offer a tailored audit approach with an emphasis on early planning and understanding how your business operates. This enables them to identify key audit risks and tailor their audit response to the unique aspects, size and nature of your business.

The benefit to the client is an effective, cost efficient, value-added independent audit, performed in a timely manner by experienced professionals.

As well as financial audit services, RSM member firms also provide the following services: 

  • Financial reporting
  • Information systems and controls assurance
  • Regulatory technical advice
  • Forensic audit and investigation
