Independent audits, health checks and assurance
Would you like an independent assurance of the effectiveness of your controls to manage fraud, money laundering and bribery and corruption risks?
We enable you to take action for improvement by asking you the awkward questions before a regulator or auditor does. We identify efficiency gains and process improvements that bring sustainable benefits to your business.
Organisations subject to Money Laundering Regulations are required to have an independent audit or review of their Anti Money Laundering Program. We can provide you with that review.
Monitoring and review of procedures and controls is also a key requirement of published regulatory guidance and an essential element of ‘adequate procedures’ under the UK Bribery Act and corporate offences of Facilitation of Tax Evasion.
We have experience across a number of regulated sectors including the Solicitors Regulatory Authority, Financial Conduct Authority, Gambling Commission, Charity Commission and the regulator of Social Housing.
We can review end to end processes, products, services, business areas, supply chains or provide an overview at organisation level.
We can also add value to ongoing or planned programmes of work by conducting in-flight reviews looking at: scope; governance; risk management; resources and reporting; at key gateways in the lifecycle of the project.
Our evaluation reports provide clear guidance regarding the effectiveness of controls, identify strengths, analyse gaps and provide detailed recommendations and action plans for process and control improvements for you to consider and take ownership of implementation. If required we can provide ongoing support with that implementation.
