Statutory Audit

Your business may be legally required to have a statutory audit of its’ financial statements.

The statutory audit threshold from 1 January 2017 applies if your business exceeds two out of the three of the criteria below:

  • Turnover more than £10.2 million
  • Gross assets greater than £5.1 million
  • More than 50 employees

If it does then an audit is mandatory.

In addition to this there are more complex rules surrounding companies that are members of a larger group or for businesses with a period that is not exactly 12 months.

Specialist audits are also subject to different rules such as charities, academies, FCA regulated businesses, pension schemes and solicitors.

Even if your business is exempt from audit you may choose to have an audit voluntarily if you or your shareholders want the benefits of an audit.

Why have an audit?

  • Added credibility if you are looking to sell your business
  • Lenders take comfort from seeing a clean audit report from a reputable firm
  • Provides an independent review of your systems and controls
