Beyond reporting, conducting audits has a number of benefits. These include added credibility and valuable insights into your business’s or organisation’s financial situation.

If you’re looking for a quality auditor servicing the Canberra region, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we’ll share our top three picks. But first, let’s take a look at what makes an excellent auditor.

What makes a reliable auditor?

Financial auditing is highly specialised and requires a great deal of expertise. We suggest keeping an eye out for the following traits:

  • Experience. The best in the auditing business have years of experience. They’ve seen it all before and know exactly how to deliver comprehensive financial audits.
  • A great track record. Opt for an auditing company with a great reputation. Look at their track record and determine whether or not that’s the kind of company you’d like to work with.
  • Independence. Auditors should be truly independent. That way, you know you are getting a thorough and fair assessment.
  • Prompt. You’ll probably need your audit complete within a specific time frame. Work with an auditor that can commit to your schedule.
  • An eye for detail. When it comes to auditing, it’s all in the details. The leading financial auditors pick up on every little mistake and discrepancy.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to have my business audited?
This depends on the size and complexity of your business. As with anything, you get what you pay for. You'll want to make sure you budget enough to get the job done right, however. Check around to see what a fair market price is and ask potential auditors how they charge.
What do I need to consider when choosing an auditor?
Check formal qualifications, length of experience, how the auditor presents on their website, whether they’ve won accolades or awards, and if they work in your industry (or a similar one). Also check for online reviews.
Do I need an auditor who specialises in my industry?
If you work in a highly specialised industry, it’s wise to select an auditor who understands how your industry operates. This will save time and money in briefing the auditor. An auditor with experience in your industry has other benefits. It means they can potentially stop issues before they arise and better cater for your needs.
How do I know if an auditor has a good reputation?
You need to research, as you would when choosing any professional support. Check the auditor’s website for testimonials, how long they’ve been in business and if they’ve won awards or accolades. Also check online (LinkedIn) and Google reviews. You can also ask the auditor for the name of a client or two you can talk to for first-hand feedback.
How efficient are auditors?
Quality auditors have invested in technology to help them work quickly and accurately in producing quality audits. Technology also enables your auditor to capture important insights that can benefit your business.
