Auditing Services

Audit and Accounting Services Overview

AAB can deliver all your requirements in respect of audit and accounting services, but what sets us apart from our competitors is the added value that we bring to any assignment whether it be a regular compliance appointment or a piece of special work.

Audit & Assurance

Businesses require a great deal more from their auditors than the statutory audit and look for a value added service. We believe the ingredients of such a service will involve having an interest in your business and its success and this will be achieved by gaining a thorough understanding of your business; collecting input from partners and senior staff; a ‘team’ approach to the work and ensuring continuity of staffing and, above all, provision of a value for money service.

Accounting Services

All businesses at all stages of their development have differing requirements for advice and we have the commitment to work with you, as necessary, by becoming involved in early stages of a fledgling business, or understanding intrinsically how a long-standing and established business works.

We can give advice on the most suitable form of legal entity when your business is in the start up phase; offer a same day company incorporation service;  prepare and deliver accounts for sole traders, partnerships, trusts and limited companies including periodic management accounts; training your personnel to improve the production and delivery of important financial information; and ensure you have an integrated accountancy and tax service to guarantee the best possible advice to you, the client.
