What is Assurance?
Assurance services are there to help decision makers navigate business complexities, risk and opportunities so as to be able to make informed choices.
Trust is a rare commodity in today’s complex world.
With all the information on hand, it’s hard to know whom and what to trust. Deloitte Audit & Assurance is uniquely positioned to help provide comfort and confidence amidst complexity and change.
That is why we have enhanced our Assurance services by drawing on complementary strengths from across Deloitte – to deliver comfort and confidence, and drive additional value, across a broader range of areas.
But what is assurance?
Simply put, assurance services are defined as 'independent professional services, typically provided by Chartered or Certified Public Accountants or Chartered Certified Accountants, that improve the quality or context of information for decision makers.'
For example, assurance services can include a review of any financial document or transaction, such as a loan, contract, or financial website. This review certifies the correctness and validity of the item being reviewed by the CPA.
Assurance services help clients navigate the complexities, risks and opportunities in their partner networks by proactively managing and monitoring risks presented by third-party relationships. Businesses use assurance services to increase the transparency, relevance and value of information they disclose to the market and their investors. Many find by sharing business performance better; it becomes a sustainable growth and competitive differentiation strategy.
