How can our advisers help the Professional Services industry?

From SRA Audits to shareholder agreements, we're here to help ensure your professional services business thrives.


SRA Audit

If you are a solicitor who is obliged to record the money that moves through their client accounts, you will need an SRA Audit (Solicitors Regulation Authority). For example, any conveyancing and probate activity where the solicitor keeps the money of their client while the customer is purchasing or selling a home.

Business Audit

A business audit is an in-depth investigation of a company’s operations in order to comprehend the company’s overall status, which is then recorded. As a result, you will be able to verify that the financial accounts of the organisation are accurate. Accounting audits, operational audits, and human resource audits are the three kinds of audits.

Pension or Grant Audit

A pension audit is when a pension scheme’s financial accounts and contributions are audited by an independent auditor who is selected by the scheme’s trustees.

Financial Conduct Authority

For the UK financial services sector, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) acts as a watchdog to ensure that all businesses adhere to the appropriate regulations. To remain FCA-registered firms, companies must adhere to stringent guidelines set out by the FCA itself.

We have specialists that can assist you in understanding all of the criteria so that your company can comprehend and follow the guidelines given.
