Though business owners traditionally regard the annual audit and preparation of annual accounts as a cost - a necessary evil that adds no value to the business - Thomas Barrie & Co. strive to transform it into a profit centre.
Besides helping you meet the statutory requirements, being your auditors gives us the opportunity to conduct a review of your financial and management systems. This can often result in our identifying potential problem areas and recommending opportunities to improve your business performance. We discuss the problems and opportunities with you and help you implement any agreed solutions.
We see the preparation of your annual report as an opportunity to enhance your external image. A well-prepared report can have a considerable positive impact on the perceptions of investors, potential finance sources, customers, prospect, referral sources, and even your own staff - all of which greatly improves your business prospects for the future. We are one of the few firms outside the “big four” auditing companies within the top 50 in Scotland and are well placed to look at any audit irrespective of its size.
We are registered to carry on audit work in the UK by The Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland. Details about our audit registration can be viewed at www.auditregister.org.uk under reference number 0029.
