Audit & Assurance

 

An effective audit is a fundamental component in the future success of any business by contributing directly to the management team’s decision making and minimising risks. We understand our role in helping governance bodies to implement audit findings in order to effect positive decisions for the organisation.

Looking beyond statutory compliance requirements and verification of financial statements is at the heart of what BDO do.  We add value through offering practical recommendations on how to make your internal controls more robust and effective as well as recommending solutions that strengthen your financial systems and procedures.

Our global audit methodology and software programs are based on the International Standards on Auditing which enables the implementation and conduct of an effective and efficient audit process. Ongoing Communication With Those Charged with Governance is a key part of any audit and we respond and address your issues immediately by communicating with you through the most experienced and senior members of our organisation.

BDO is one of Samoa's largest audit firms and has access to a network of international experts from around the globe in over 100 countries.  If understanding the business environment in the Pacific is what is required, we can call on professionals from our region through BDO New Zealand and BDO Fiji which together have over 800 staff and 93 partners.  With member firms also in French Polynesia and Papua New Guinea, BDO is the only international network accounting firm that has extensive coverage in the Pacific region.

Our audit team is comprised of professionals who are at the forefront of legislative, compliance and financial reporting requirements.  Our teams have access to the relevant technical knowledge on auditing and accounting as well as continual professional training.  This technical capability drives the specialisations that they have gained from working across various industries and sectors.
