BSR Bespoke performs rigorous audits of your company’s accounts

BSR Bespoke will ensure your business meets its auditing obligations. Audits may be legally required for your company - please see the criteria below. However, you may also volunteer to have your company audited.

What is an audit?

An audit is an independent examination to provide assurance on whether a company’s accounts show a true and fair view of its financial performance and position. Regular audits provide an invaluable external perspective and feedback. They can bring clarity and order to your business.

What are the benefits of an audit?

Audits can:

  • Give your accounts increased credibility and reliability for third parties such as lenders, credit ratings agencies and business partners (current and prospective).
  • Review your accounting systems and internal controls to identify any weaknesses.
  • Check and deter fraud.
  • Highlight key areas for improvement.
  • Inspire confidence in stakeholders, including employees and shareholders.

Do my company accounts need to be audited?

Your accounts will need to be audited if your company exceeds two of the following small company thresholds:

  • Annual turnover of £10.2 million.
  • Gross assets of £5.1 million.
  • 50 employees on average.

You may also require an audit if you are part of a large group.

I am a shareholder of a company. Can I request an audit?

Yes. Shareholders owning at least 10% of a company can request an audit - even if it's not required by law. As part of the audit process, we will help clients to fully understand the figures, identify any areas for concern and advise on any potential opportunities for improving the way the company is run.
