Managing your business risk.

We have a strong track record of helping clients to manage their risks, and improve their business processes and financial reporting. Our specialists will provide you the full breadth of audit and assurance services, going beyond compliance.

Internal Audit

Crowe Australasia’s Internal Audit approach is clear, concise, and easily understood. It is designed to be free from unnecessary complexities. Our approach has been shaped by experience over time and takes into account international standards.

We offer clients a pragmatic and comprehensive approach to Internal Audit – one that will ensure you can extract the maximum benefit from your service provider. This is not just about performing compliance reviews, but also about supporting you to create a strong culture of ethics, good governance, and high performance. 

External Audit

Our External Audit team focusses its attention to areas that are higher risk in terms of impact to the operation of your business and its financial statements. We work closely with you to understand how systems and controls can manage and mitigate those risks.

If significant matters do arise, we will work with you before the core field work begins, to immediately identify these matters and ensure a prompt resolution. Before we do anything, we ensure we have a thorough understanding of the entity by meeting with the key personnel. Our audit methodology is top-down, risk-based, and most importantly, tailored precisely to each entity.
