Audit & Assurance
Today’s global business and financial marketplace is dynamic and evolving, with agile and responsive businesses constantly adapting to this everchanging environment. Akin to this, stakeholders require greater assurance and value from the audit process to help inform decision-making.
At PKF, we recognise that the nature of the audit and financial reporting services we provide to our clients must continue to evolve alongside this.
Our culture is built upon a genuine interest in our clients; We discover what is important to them and make it important to us – their challenges, growth, ambitions and the wider commercial context. Our clients get the attention they deserve from approachable, senior professionals who ask the right questions, listen, and provide real insight and a clear point of view. It is this approach that enables us to deliver a tailored, responsive audit process, specifically designed to address the unique challenges and risks of each client.
Our reputation is built on the quality of the work we perform and the quality of the service we deliver. Our approach to quality assurance is designed not only to ensure compliance with all relevant regulatory requirements, but more importantly to look behind the numbers to consider what they mean for the business as a whole. We like to bring ideas to the table going beyond the technical issues to offer new solutions to problems, to simply make our client’s businesses’ better.
We offer a genuinely collaborative approach that seeks to constantly build an ever-closer working relationship with our clients, ensuring a consistent service delivery, and creating the potential for long term continuity. Our commitment to the client experience is at the heart of everything we do to deliver a Best in Class service. Our people are open, accessible, and easy to work with, while at the same time accessible and very responsive. We work through the issues alongside you, always with an independent perspective and challenging where necessary.
We have made significant investments in digital technology and innovation to equip our audit teams with the appropriate tools to deliver an audit experience that adds further value to our clients. This use of technology combined with the experience and expertise of our people reshapes how we look at an organization’s risks and opportunities. It enables us to uncover potential issues and provide greater insights and perspectives, which can lead to new ways of doing business and managing risk.
Given the global reach of many of our clients, we utilise the strength and expertise of our PKF International network, one of the largest global networks of independent firms, to ensure that we can always meet the needs of our clients on a global scale.

“We have been very satisfied clients of PKF O’Connor, Leddy & Holmes for more than 30 years. Originally they were our auditors but became advisors, tax consultants and a sounding board for advice about expanding our business. We have always found them to be efficient, reliable, thorough and above all flexible. Having the same staff for years meant that our point of contact remained constant and they came to understand our problems – sometimes better than we did!”
