Audit Assurance for CHARITIES

Rawlinson Pryde & Partners are qualified to undertake specialist audits required by The Charities’ Commission or professional bodies (including SAR and FCA).

Our staff are experienced in these specialised audit engagements, so you can be assured you will receive a quality service. Any charity that falls below a gross income of £1,000,000, unless both their gross assets exceed £3.26m and their gross income exceeds £250,000, can choose to opt out of a full audit.

Most are required to obtain an alternative assurance service known as an independent examination.

Most Charities often have to follow the Charities SORP FRS102.

Audit Assurance for COMPANIES

Companies that qualify as small companies under Companies Act 2006 are usually exempt from audit, unless they are members of a group or are charities and required to follow the charity audit thresholds.

The definition of a small company: a company is small if for both this year and last year it was not ineligible, and it met two out of three of the following criteria:

For periods beginning on or after 1 January 2016:

  • Turnover: £10.2m
  • Total assets: £5.1m
  • Number of employees: 50

In addition to the thresholds, an audit can be required because:

  • Members holding 10% in nominal value of the company’s issued share capital request an audit
  • The articles of association can also stipulate one must be undertaken

All Plc’s require an audit no matter if they meet the above thresholds or not.
