Audit

We help our clients navigate the ever-changing landscape of financial regulation and carry out independent evaluations to make sure their reporting is robust, enabling them to make confident decisions about the future. Our Audit and Assurance practice is comprised of over 10 different teams and over 50 partners and we audit over 8,000 entities annually.

We're the top public sector auditor in the UK, providing services to local authorities, government departments, and the NHS. When you’re part of this team, you’re not only making a difference to the running of these essential services, but to the millions of people who use them too.

We also audit thousands of commercial organisations every year, ranging from FTSE and AIM companies to small and medium sized enterprises. In fact, we're the fourth largest auditor of the UK's top 2,500 private companies.
