Statutory Audit

How It Works!

Statutory Audit is a legally required external audit conducted annually to meet a specific set of requirements by the government. It relies on the internal audit reports, verification of financial information, documents and related stock validations. Scope and nature of audit programme are subject to the specifications of the governmental body and financial institutions. It involves scrutiny of all financial statements and accounts related to the organization to ensure their reliability and avoid any misrepresentation or discrepancies. The findings of a statutory audit are legal and binding and can lead to citation or fines or both. All registered business enterprises are mandated to undergo statutory audit for the preparation of accurate financial statements. Statutory audit plays a major role in efficiently managing the operations of the company.

Internal Audit

How It Works!

The role of the internal audit function is critical for the success of any risk management framework within an organization. The main obligation of internal auditors is to evaluate whether other risk systems and controls in place within the firm are operating effectively to manage and mitigate risks or not. Such an independent evaluation of the firm's control functions will go a long way in enriching the systems and procedures that are followed.

We believe in establishing a solid business relationship with our clients based on transparency and continuous communication so as to enhance the quality of the internal audit functions that we perform. We encourage our clients to participate in every step of the audit programme, to arrive at comprehensive solutions that are an advantage to every firm that we work with.

How It Works!

Compliance describes the ability to act according to an order, set of rules or request. In the context of financial services businesses compliance operates at two levels.

Level 1-compliance with the external rules that are imposed upon an organization as a whole.
Level 2-compliance with internal systems of control that are imposed to achieve compliance with the externally imposed rules.

In general, compliance means conforming to a rule, such as a specification, policy, standard or law. Regulatory compliance describes the goal that organizations aspire to achieve in their efforts to ensure that they are aware of and take steps to comply with relevant laws, polices, and regulations. Due to the increasing number of regulations and need for operational transparency, organizations are increasingly adopting the use of consolidated and harmonized sets of compliance controls. This approach is used to ensure that all necessary governance requirements can be met without the unnecessary duplication of effort and activity from resources.

We provide our services to review the compliance mechanism followed by our clients and provide guidance on how to ensure the effective compliance.

We at A. Arshad and Company offer following services with regards to compliance;

- Regulatory compliance
- Legislative compliance
- Agreement/Contract term compliance
- ISO compliance
