CONVENTIONAL AUDIT CONCERNS

External audit in a conventional environment is an activity that encompasses time-consuming and repetitive procedures. These procedures engross the best of the talents employed by audit firms and there is a little room or no room for more value-added activities. This has been an area of concern for most of the audit firms that clients complain of no value add from the audit. As such, the external audit is widely perceived as a non-value add compliance activity. Although, the problem has been mitigated to an extent by big4 consulting firms internally by setting up their shared services center but for the wider mid-sized audit firms it remains a big problem. The shared services center is not a solution for mid-sized firms due to the heavy set up and running costs involved.

THE SOLUTION

There are thousands of mid-size audit firms across the globe who have been seeking a solution for many years.  STAIRFIRST GLOBAL OFFSHORING CENTRE is a solution for these audit firms as it brings the leadership, quality, and substantial savings to these firms across the globe in line with big4 consulting firms. There are NO Overheads involved and the processes are refined and structured to fit all. The audit firms can save significantly in terms of hours or money and spend that time in adding more value for the clients.  It’s a WIN-WIN situation for audit firms.
