In each of the markets that you need to present and public reports, our focus is to be your partner in assuring those reports. Our focus is your success and success is defined as having an accurate and complete report filed on time and meeting all the legal requirements.
Assurance is the final layer in a reporting project. It is one thing to produce the report but another to add an assurance layer that provides additional independent analysis. Assurance offers a protective film that gives credibility and provides a level of protection to the company and those that rely on the report.
If you decide to get assurance for your reporting, there is no doubt that a focus on accuracy and completeness will help you improve and strive to achieve higher levels of reporting. Regulators are looking at your reports and the most comprehensive and accurate ones will pass quickly.
Part of our assurance is to validate your risk and to understand your tolerance for managing risk. It is only then that we can look at the due diligence and work out whether it is accurate and complete. While it is not a full risk assessment, the process may help you identify risk that you had not considered or even adjust areas where you might be overdoing it.
Your corporate due diligence efforts are all based on risk. Corporate due diligence costs money and it takes time. Having looked at hundreds of these programmes, we can quickly suggest where you might be able to cut back and readjust saving you precious time and money.
Some of the best advice you might receive is through the assurance process. While it is up to you whether you heed that advice and build it into your programme, the assurance process comes with some opportunities for improvement. You might find the assurance process is actually a valuable part of your process and cost effective.
