Special sector audit is the assurance that appropriate accounting policies and processes are being applied and irregularities in financial reporting are identified. It is also an opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of financial controls and management systems, to assist in identifying risks and how to minimise them.
With the right guidance, the auditing process can be invaluable to your organisation. Dains offer professional, personal, proactive audit and assurance services in the following sectors;
