At Pierce we perceive an audit as an opportunity, rather than a necessity or a threat to your business.
We have a dedicated audit team with wide-ranging experience in statutory audit work with an emphasis on a "value-added" approach.
We will make the audit process a positive one for your business in addition to ensuring that you meet the required regulatory requirements.

From providing expert corporate audit services, to meeting small business audit requirements, our audit and assurance service is second to none.
We work with you to set an audit timetable for an efficient audit, minimising the impact on your business and your team. We recognise that the continuity of audit teams is important for an efficient audit also.
Our staff undergo continuous training and development to remain fully up to date with the regulations.
We will review your financial controls and systems to help you identify and minimise risk, and will endeavour to add value to audit and assurance processes.
Our experience of various sectors and industries enables us to assess your business and its performance in a wider context.
“We take a proactive stance to audit whilst ensuring that your financial information is reliable”.
If you are not required by law to have an audit, do not rule it out without first considering the benefits that it brings.
It is a myth that there are no commercial benefits to an audit of your accounts. The commercial benefits are numerous and can make a difference in the continued growth and existence of the business.
This is all about the planning and is a common problem that we hear about when talking to an audit prospective client. At Pierce, we work with our audit clients to set out a pre-determined realistic audit timetable to meet clients needs and to ensure an efficient audit. We also find that continuity of audit team personnel helps, and we endeavour to provide this continuity wherever possible.
We understand that an audit can appear daunting, but they bring big advantages to a business including identifying business risks, recommendations for improving internal systems and controls, they add credibility to the company accounts for stakeholders, and they can improve a company’s credit rating to name just a few.
Our skilled and experienced audit team will work with you closely through the audit process with an emphasis on an efficient value-added audit with minimal disruption to your business and team.
