KPMG's audit is based on understanding a client's business drivers and risks. This approach delivers a robust and thorough audit that focuses on relevant areas. There are four key phases in the process:
- Planning - identifies and confirms the key risks
- Controls phase - we evaluate the design and implementation of selected controls, advise management of any issues and carry out the half year review
- Substantiation - we carry out tests of detail on areas that require particular focus.
- Completion - the submission of the audit opinion and the delivery of our view on key areas of your business
