Audit and assurance

Auditing and Assurance Services in Lancashire
Whitehead & Howarth Chartered Accountants undertake statutory audit services for individual companies and groups of companies as well as both incorporated and unincorporated charities.

We also carry out non statutory audits. Whilst the majority of businesses aren’t required to have an audit by law, many of our clients do still choose to have one. Internal audits invariably add value to your management, planning and engagement with stakeholders as well as being a positive indicator of your company’s credibility.

We can provide assurance reports, where stakeholders require more comfort than a mere accountant’s report, to full audit engagements under the Companies Act or Charities Act regulations.

Carefully organised audit services
Our well planned and performed audit services can be a positive experience for both you and your business.  We will organise your audit carefully to ensure that we focus on the issues which are significant to your individual business. This enables us to provide you with constructive recommendations to improve your business’ efficiency and productivity.

Whitehead & Howarth Chartered Accountants are fully registered by the ICAEW to carry out audit work in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Details about our audit registration can be viewed at for the United Kingdom under reference number C005779741 and for Ireland under reference number EWC005779741.

We will explain our internal audit service process at the very beginning of our relationship so you know what to expect. We will also ensure that you are kept up to date throughout.

As we allocate each client to one of Whitehead & Howarth’s four partners, you can be sure of a personal and consistent service right the way through the auditing process.
