THROUGH OUR “RELATIONSHIP FIRST” APPROACH, WE SET OUT TO ESTABLISH EXACTLY HOW BEST TO HELP YOU BUILD FOR THE FUTURE, INTEGRATING OUR SERVICE OFFERING WHERE AND WHEN REQUIRED...
Nolands’ approach to auditing is unique in that we build direct, long term relationships with our clients. These relationships are established for reasons that go well beyond the technical disciplines and requirements of an accurately executed, compliant audit. It is based not on facts and figures alone but also on an understanding of the various aspects of clients’ businesses that are not always reflected on the face of a balance sheet or in a set of accounts.
NOLANDS VALUES CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS ABOVE ALL ELSE!
It is for this reason that Nolands promotes a culture of client/partner interaction. We are passionate about ensuring that these relationships are mutually beneficial and that there is a real fit, both human and by category or type of business. At the same time, independence of judgement and objectivity remain key.
We believe the benefits of building direct long term relationships is that they create a foundation for our partners to ensure that intellectual capital accumulated and personal experience and judgement, will always be readily available to our clients’ advantage. An advantage of having developed long term relationships and having gained an indepth knowledge of clients’ businesses also affords us the opportunity to solve problems and react more timeously to unforeseen challenges that they may face.
A current challenge facing those who meet the requirements of the Public Interest Scorecard (the compliance scorecard, as set out in the new Companies Act) is the decision whether or not to continue with an annual audit.
We believe that although the Public Interest Scorecard may appear to be a simple and practical approach to determining whether a business should or shouldn’t have an audit, it does not necessarily take into account many crucial and complex criteria that are not measurable by pure numerics.
Being able to provide guidance in making the appropriate decisions requires our insight and understanding of our clients’ business, its structure, directorship and vision.
Auditing is really about peace of mind; the “assurance” aspect is always uppermost in all that we do. In having a detailed understanding of our clients and their businesses and working in a professional and compliant manner, we believe we are able to offer that peace of mind.
