Financial statements and audit

The profits and losses, and assets of your company are detailed in the financial statements, which are produced for each accounting period. The statements are based on your company’s accounting during the financial year. Different size companies have different rules governing the financial statements.

An audit means the examination of your company’s accounting, financial statements, other documents and administration. Separate audits are carried out for each financial year.
