Audit & Assurance

Audit & Assurance services

Audit is a detailed examination of Financial Statements with an eventual objective to provide an opinion, whether it represents a true and fair picture of the company/entity.

As a leading audit firm in India we maintain the records of the specific company and act as a safeguard for them, building the trust of all the stakeholders in the management. These days, many companies  are adopting the auditing services and due diligence services as an annual activity without any legal compliance. The aim is to  reveal a clear picture of the company’s finances and help the management take important steps to improve the growth potential.

How is Forensic audit different from Audit?

Forensic Audit and Audit are different procedures as their objectives and approaches are different. Audit is conducted as an audit is conducted with an objective to detect material misstatement in the financial statement s if any and not any immaterial fraud. Financial Statement audit is approached with the objective to obtain reasonable assurance that the financial statement is free from material misstatements and involves sample-based investigation which sometimes might not be able to detect frauds.  However, Forensic audit is conducted as a response to the event of suspicion of fraud in a company. The approach followed in Forensic audit is an investigative and in-depth approach to collect the evidence for the determination of fraud and its impact and perpetrators responsible for such fraud. Financial Statement audit also has time and scope limitations attached to it, whereas there are no such limitations in the forensic audit because it is driven with an objective to investigate the records for suspected fraud.
