Audit and Advisory

Some limited companies and other entities are required to have their financial statements audited by law. If your business or organisation falls into this category, Brown Butler is the smart choice.

When you choose Brown Butler to complete your audit, you will gain a comprehensive review of your business with recommendations to take forward into the new year. It’s all part of our commitment to improve your business again and again.

Are you legally required to undergo an audit?

For financial years that begin on or after 1 January, as a limited company you may qualify for an audit exemption if your company has at least two of the following:

  • an annual turnover of no more than £10.2 million
  • total assets worth no more than £5.1 million
  • 50 or fewer employees on average

For registered charities and other specialist organisations we would be pleased to discuss the detailed audit exemptions with you.

If you do not meet the exemption thresholds, or decide you would prefer an audit, Brown Butler is able to provide a full range of audit & assurance services to businesses and organisations of all sizes and structures within a wide range of industries and sectors.
