In both challenging and favourable economic conditions, organisations strive to be smart, nimble, creative and forward thinking. Our audit professionals strive to help our clients “get it right” in today’s complex world.
Deloitte brings a business mindset combined with deep technical knowledge and extensive industry experience to assist clients to address business issues across the broad spectrum of accounting, financial reporting, governance, compliance, and risk advisory disciplines. We also strive to provide timely communications regarding professional developments and insights regarding matters that may affect the organisation’s business.
Your Deloitte engagement team will approach your financial statement audit with an in-depth understanding of your business, its industry and the New Zealand regulatory and financial reporting environment. Our approach is to involve and exchange ideas with you with the objective of generating improvements in controls, procedures and ultimately your effectiveness. Our audit professionals are committed to the highest standards of professional integrity, objectivity, independence, and technical excellence.
Assurance over information enhances the credibility of that information. For this reasons many organisations and their stakeholders are seeking assurance for many forms of disclosure, including reports for regulatory authorities and financial institutions, completion balance sheets for sale and purchase agreements, other special purpose financial statements, and grant reports for funding organisations. Your Deloitte assurance team can work with you to provide the appropriate level of assurance for your reporting requirements. Our specialists also provide tailored solutions to meet your needs in the areas of internal audit and reports on your internal control environment and corporate responsibility and sustainability reporting.
In the complex world of financial reporting the pace of technical accounting change has become profound. At the same time the consequences for not “getting it right” can be significant. Our technical team provides leading edge technical accounting opinions, assistance in complex accounting areas, and up-to-date advice on the latest technical accounting issues that affect organisations.
Working closely with our corporate finance team, we provide an in-depth review of historical financial statements as part of the acquisition process, including analysis of the key drivers of an entity's operating and cash flow performance and any issues arising from these. Our specialists also assess the composition, appropriateness and completeness of the statement of financial position, work with the acquisition team to determine a negotiating strategy and provide input into the financial aspects of the sale and purchase process.
In partnership with our Enterprise Risk Services team, we advise directors on the latest trends, regulations, and leading practices relating to corporate governance and provide clients with effective tools for enhancing their strategic planning and financial reporting.
