Service Charge Audits
The audit is an independent external review process that adds to the credibility of an entity’s disclosures, be it their annual financial statements, systems of internal control, or compliance with contractual or legislative obligations.
Service Charge Audit involves performing procedures to obtain evidence that a specified process is being followed to give occupiers sufficient comfort that there is no material misstatement within the information subject to the audit, in this case, the service charge accounts.
Accounting for service charges and service charge accounts in the property industry is a specialist area that requires expertise and an understanding of the sector.
Our specialist Audit team understands that a Property Service Charge Audit is a key procedure for landlords and tenants, and one where independence, timeliness, and transparency are of the utmost importance.
