External Audit

CA RA Mpako Audit services

An financial audit is an examination that must be conducted by an independent auditor.

This type of audit is most commonly intended to result in a certification of the financial statements of an entity. Importantly, this certification is required by certain investors and lenders, and for all publicly-held businesses.

The objectives of an external audit are to determine:

  • The accuracy and completeness of the client’s accounting records;
  • Whether the client’s accounting records have been prepared in accordance with the applicable accounting framework; and
  • Whether the client’s financial statements present fairly its results and financial position.
  • Independent Reviews

An independent review is the latest addition to the Companies Act that provides limited assurance. Therefore, this type of financial review requires less rigorous investigation, and the costs are inevitably less than for an audit.
