Baker Tilly Staples Rodway can provide all types of assurance services to ensure that you are performing in compliance with regulations, and achieving the outcomes you are entitled to under all types of contracts 

Acquisition due diligence

Investigation before purchasing a business is critical to ensuring an understanding of the risks and benefits of purchase. We assist our clients who are seeking to expand through acquisition by providing rigorous pre-purchase due diligence investigations. We are also able to call on the experience of the business sales team at Baker Tilly Transaction Services, which gives us a solid understanding of the transactions market and a unique insight into the vendor’s perspective on a proposed transaction.

Compliance engagements

Compliance engagements can help you assess whether your business has met its obligations and provide assurance on whether specific requirements, such as those set out in legislation, agreements or contracts, have been achieved. This can include compliance with health and safety requirements or compliance with the conditions of a license, such as a gambling licence.

Review engagements

If assurance is needed, but a full audit is not required, Baker Tilly Staples Rodway’s expert team can assist by undertaking a review engagement. Reviews can be a good option for not-for-profit entities and other entities where a full audit is not required.

Wine verification

Baker Tilly Staples Rodway have a registered wine verifier who is able to carry out annual Wine Standards Management Plan verifications (including cider, fruit wine and mead) on behalf of MPI to enable wineries to obtain export certification. Baker Tilly Staples Rodway also have relationships with other verifiers through their collaboration with Water & Atmosphere Information Limited.
