Chartered accountants audit services, Chatswood. Sydney

Confidence and compliance, your Audit's efficient conclusion

As a Director, CFO or management accountant, your governance responsibilities will be far less time-consuming when you have an LBW auditing specialist on your team. Your LBW auditor can efficiently offset much of the inevitable impact of the ever increasing audit burden on your directors and responsible staff.

It is obligatory that your chosen accountants and auditors establish and maintain a comprehensive and current understanding of your enterprise, the objectives of its stakeholders and the statutory reporting requirements particular to your current circumstances. The professional audit advice and auditing services provided by John Watson, Rupa Dharmasiri and your LBW team of auditors will ensure that your enterprise's or organisation's stakeholders and senior management can remain confident that you are fully aware of the continuing alterations to the audit process, and remain compliant with the Australian Auditing Standards (AAS).

To ensure full and timely compliance with your statutory responsibilities and in accordance with the Corporations Act, make contact with your LBW audit team via e-mail, phone (+61 2) 9411 4866 today or complete an on-line enquiry without delay to secure an obligation-free consultation with an LBW partner to review your auditing needs and to give you the accounting and tax advice that only an AAS compliant accountancy practice is qualified to provide.

Your auditing and statutory compliance requirements may vary dependent upon the size of enterprise you manage and the type of industry you operate in. Foreign ownership, external funding facilities and whether you trade as a non-profit entity, among other factors will also have an influence. More than 20 years exposure to a range of differing commercial and non-profit requirements has equipped LBW's auditing team with a sound understanding of the evolving auditing issues faced by a broad cross section of business owners. The experience LBW has gained in achieving their corporate governance responsibilities in these industry specialities will be invaluable to your enterprise too. They include:

  • Direct sales businesses
  • Commercial Real Estate
  • Medical & Aged Care
  • Property development
  • Automotive aftermarket
  • Manufacturing sector
  • Wholesale & distribution

The Australian Auditing Standards (AAS) are applicable to all audits conducted under the Corporations Act as well as audits undertaken by members of Australian-based organisations such as sports groups, local schools and not-for-profit organisations. Organisations that confidently rely on LBW & Partners for advice on the unique auditing and governance responsibilities faced by not for profit entities include:

  • Reporting to funding agencies
  • Fund raising issues including internal controls, financial statement reporting and GST implications
  • Fringe Benefits Tax rules and their impact on Rebatable employers

  • GST concessions
  • Annual paperwork to comply with self assessment for income tax exemption
  • Trust structures within non profit entities
