Internal audit

Internal audit - insightRobust businesses take calculated risks, minimising the chances of nasty surprises.  However it can be a challenge making sure that what’s happening at the ‘coal face’ is effectively supporting the business.  This is where internal audit can help!

Benefits of internal audit

Staff usually find it difficult to take time out and stand back to look at the way they do things, not least because of day to day pressures.  Having someone looking in from the outside helps them do this.  It also provides a fresh perspective with some constructive challenge.

I like the audit to be a positive experience, with helpful forward looking recommendations and insights.  Internal audit can result in better staff ‘buy in’ and accountability as well as improved processes and information – all of which should enhance performance.

Flexible

Small and medium sized businesses can’t justify having an in-house internal audit function – outsourcing provides a cost effective flexible solution.  One off assignments can be carried out if you feel that an ongoing service is not right for your business.
