Audit and assurance

I wanted to thank you ... for the manner in which our 2012 audit was undertaken. Your staff ...were a pleasure to work with [and] your final recommendations were helpful and assisted the school in understanding areas where improvements to systems could be made. It is good to know that we have auditors who not only carry out their statutory duties, but also wish to work with the school, as partners, in improving our systems and controls.

Today, UK Charities operate in a highly regulated environment, having to comply with the Charities Act, Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) and other more general requirements. When it comes to auditing, at Ensors we understand these particular challenges and issues facing charities.

We believe that there is more to good auditing than just checking figures. All our audits are partner led and the teams include at least one qualified accountant. Our teams will take the time to form close working relationships with clients and consistently meet our high service standards and critical deadlines on every audit we undertake.

Whilst your final audit report will be shaped by statutory requirements, we will go that that bit further. For example, on every Charity audit we provide a final management report, giving detailed commentary on the accounts, analysis of the controls inherent in the charity and recommendations for the future.
