Audit & Independent Examinations

We have vast experience in providing audit and independent examinations services to a whole range of commercial and not-for-profit organisations.


Shires will perform your audit or independent examination with maximum efficiency and accuracy and a minimum disruption to your operation.

Our audit and independent examination services provide all the financial assurances you require to comply with the Financial Reporting Standards FRS, Audit regulations and surpass all UK statutory obligations.

Throughout the process we are 100 percent on your side and should we ascertain any potential areas of concerns we will work with you offering advice and guidance to help you resolve the matter with minimal fuss.

Clients that utilise this service may be required to do so under statutory criteria however, many clients that instruct us to conclude an audit or an independent examination do so for many reasons - for example, they may want to add credibility to their published financial statements which may help to secure larger contracts or add greater due diligence when selling a business. In addition some businesses or charities conclude an audit to offer peace of mind to external stake holders such as investors or trustees.

Whether you require an audit, an independent examination or fully outsourced Financial Director services we are able to offer a comprehensive and flexible solution to suit your needs.

We offer a free no obligation meeting and would welcome the opportunity to discuss any requirements you may have. So why not call us on 01270 820273 or complete the form below and we will get back to you.
