Services to Audit Committees

Audit committees have been having a more than usually interesting time over the
last couple of years. Big changes in reporting and regulation have combined with
increased attention from investors, and both workload and exposure have gone up.

Independent Audit is best known as a leader in external reviews of boards. And, as
part of our work with boards, we also work with audit committees to help them be
more effective and efficient. We are known for our practical approach which looks
at how you achieve good outcomes rather than at your process compliance.

This booklet gives a high-level outline of what we do to help audit committees.


We’ve worked with more than 160 clients. They are mainly FTSE 350 comanies – including 20 from the FTSE 100.

Helping you get it right

For us, good governance is about good performance.

Yes, compliance matters.  But our work is about helping you make sure your organisation…is led effectively by a board that adds value…is kept under control through risk management and assurance frameworks that meet your needs…and is “doing the right thing”.
