Delivering high quality independent audits to build confidence in corporate reporting

Quality is the cornerstone of our approach; our deep technical expertise, the experience we draw upon across our global network, our technology focus and our commitment to continuously developing our auditors, support us in consistently executing high-quality independent audits.

Independent audit helps build trust and confidence. It should equip Those Charged With Governance, investors and other stakeholders to make better informed decisions based on meaningful information. The focus and expectations of the market on the provision of high-quality corporate reporting has never been greater; we take seriously our public interest role in supporting this.

Our team combine the latest audit tools, technologies and agile processes and procedures to deliver high quality audits. We are proud of our role performing work in the public interest and our audit team are dedicated to the highest standards of independence, professional objectivity and technical excellence.

We audit a broad range of listed organisations and their subsidiaries in the UK and internationally, as well as other public interest entities such as banks and insurers. We also have vast audit experience in the private sector, including entrepreneurial and high growth businesses. We have strong industry credentials across the financial services and corporate landscape and can draw on a wide range of specialists and experts across our extensive global network.

Building public trust

Regulatory and reporting landscapes are becoming more complex and societal pressures on businesses are rightly increasing; the pace of change is rapid. Clear, meaningful reporting is critical and independent audit should play a valuable role in providing challenge and assurance. At Deloitte, we are proactively engaging with a range of stakeholders – including policy makers, investors, company directors, audit committee chairs and industry bodies – to ensure audit and the corporate governance regime continues to evolve to meet the needs of society and to serve its purpose in promoting confidence and trust.

We continue to innovate and invest in our audit product to ensure it meets the needs of stakeholders - both today, and in future. We are focused on driving positive change to ensure that the audit product is valuable to business leaders, investors and broader society.

As the leading experts, we help build and enhance trust between businesses and the public, by responding to emerging issues and risks and driving clarity and reliability of information that companies report. Transparency is important to us: we are committed to being transparent about how we assess risk, the findings and observations from our testing and, where issues arise, giving early warning to support improvement and remediation in the public interest.
