Core services

  • Financial statement audit

    If your company does not qualify as ‘small’ then you will require an audit. Whether a statutory requirement or a desire to create confidence in your accounts, a financial statement audit enhances your company's financial credibility, providing reassurance to stakeholders.

    At Shaw Gibbs we tailor our audits, and the audit team, to the specific requirements of your business. We make sure we understand where you want your business to be in the future and the audit process is designed to be a driver of value and trust within your company. The best way to achieve this is through consistent communication and a great service.

  • Assurance services

    We offer a range of assurance services that can be tailored to suit your needs. We will work with you to determine the appropriate level of assurance on your financial statements that is required without putting an undue strain on your time and other resources.

    If shareholders, providers of finance or other users of the accounts require some additional level of assurance, an assurance review engagement is likely to be better suited to your needs.

  • Grant audit

    If your business has received funding from Innovate UK or other grant awarding bodies, you may need an audit to support your grant claims. Shaw Gibbs can deliver an efficient grant audit based on our experience of the process.

    We are familiar with the standardised paperwork and processes agreed between Innovate UK and accountants country-wide. This specifies the extent of the work required to support the claims as they are made. We can talk you through the process and help you avoid some of the common pitfalls. We'll advise on the relationship between grant funding and the research & development tax relief programmes, too.

Added value services

Corporate Governance & risk

Assessing the effectiveness of your current procedures, whilst helping you to plan for the future means acting against potential risks.

FCA regulated companies

It is important that you appoint a firm with sufficient expertise. Not only do we have a long history of working with UK FCA registered businesses, but we ourselves are FCA registered, so we understand the requirements from both sides of the fence.

Solicitors

Under the rules of the Solicitors Regulation Authority, all solicitors who deal with client money must submit an accounts report annually. This must be prepared and signed by a registered auditor.

We know there are risks that may occur when adhering to SRAs, that's why we work to actively alleviate them, whilst working to improve your internal processes.

To guarantee an audit truly tailored to your needs, we select our team based on their experience and understanding of your business and your industry.
