Audit, assurance & risk management

Our dedicated team of auditors are committed to maintaining the highest levels of quality and professional standards in the provision of audit, assurance and risk management services.

We use an internationally recognised audit methodology and prepare paperless audit files. All Baker Tilly Staples Rodway firms are registered under the Auditor Regulation Act 2011 to audit issuers.

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway has a dedicated accounting technical team that is able to advise clients on complex financial reporting issues, such as those that arise when reporting under New Zealand equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards. Our technical team also runs financial reporting update seminars for clients and publishes regular technical updates.

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway utilises a risk based audit methodology that requires a thorough understanding of our client’s organisation, its goals and objectives, key business risks, operations and financial processes. This understanding not only provides the foundation for a highly effective audit, but also gives us insights which we use to provide further value to our clients.
