OUR SERVICES

AUDIT & ASSURANCE

The current business environment emphasises good corporate governance, risk management and greater transparency. This has led to the requirement for additional disclosures and the implementation of internationally accepted financial reporting standards and statutory regulations.

At PCCO, we understand these issues. Our Audit & Assurance Services are specially designed for each individual client, focusing on the critical areas and risks particular to your business. We can help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses, which in turn will enable you to position your business for success.

Each and every assignment is led by a Partner, working with a personalised audit team consisting of well-trained and qualified auditors who are supervised by a manager in charge. Each assignment is carried out using time-tested risk-based methodologies which are tailored to fit each client.

Besides providing assurance of a true and fair view of financial information to the management, shareholders and regulatory authorities, our audit services also provide an insight to your accounting systems and internal controls that will then enable us to recommend improvements, if required.

In addition to statutory financial audits, we also undertake other Assurance Services such as financial due diligence reviews, profit forecast and projections reviews. Other Assurance assignments include the valuation of businesses and examination of their viability, evaluation of investment projects, preparation of financial data for submission to bankers, reviews and advice on profit and cash flow forecasts.

Our approach is not just confined to the traditional financial audit to assist you in meeting regulatory requirements. By understanding your business, we can assist you to meet challenges and manage the complexities of the business world. Our staff are trained to identify opportunities for clients to improve their overall business cost-effectiveness, efficiency and productivity. Our services include:
