HOW WE WORK WITH YOU

Our Audit Approach

At Lowrys Audit we recognise the end product, the Audit Report is not exciting, and it is very consistent from firm to firm. Therefore, we prioritise the audit journey. Our aim is to reach the audit’s conclusion, ensuring a clean (unqualified) audit report while minimising disruption to your dedicated staff. We achieve this with following methods:

  • Using a consistent audit team, year on year
  • Encouraging year-round communication to ensure a timely resolution to any difficulties faced by you
  • Retaining quality audit staff, so that we can retain quality audit clients like yourself.
  • Building great relationships with the audit clients we work with.
  • Ensure that our audit clients understand that we are part of their team, we are in your corner and work with you to achieve your compliance requirements – we do not work for any of your regulatory bodies.

Navigate the Audit process with as little stress as possible.

Our experience has shown that many bookkeepers, financial controllers, business managers and accountants are apprehensive about their audit visit. Some because their own experiences have been difficult, with the audit firm sending out a new team every year and having to field the same questions year after year. Others feel that they are being targeted and can become defensive and uncooperative. We do our best to manage these common complaints and work with you to achieve your compliance requirements, improve your systems and controls and get to the end product of the Audit Report with as little stress as possible.
