As there are different types of engagements your business needs to first determine what kind of
engagement it requires. Certain small and medium size companies, for example, might only need a
Compilation Engagement or an Independent Review rather than a full statutory audit.

The type of engagement required by each businessis prescribed by the Companies Act of 2008 and
depends on the result of the Public Interest Score (PIS) calculated.

We can calculate your PIS to determine what kind of engagement you need.

reconciliations, VAT reconciliations to Turnover, Payroll reconciliations. Preparing a fixed asset
register and depreciation calculations and year end journals.

streamlined not only for audit purposes but also for your own internal control benefits.
