Audit

Lee Oosthuizen and Smith Inc. is committed to providing a high level of service and expertise at a competitive price. Our risk based methodology and approach is based on applicable national and international standards and aims to add the maximum value possible while remaining efficient with respect to both time and cost. Our partners take a hands-on approach to the services offered and are involved in all phases of our audits. For companies which do not require a statutory audit in terms of the Companies Act, the decision between a voluntary audit and independent review is an important one with many far-reaching consequences. Our partners are available to discuss the decision with you in detail and provide you with information regarding the costs versus the benefits of each. Our audit and independent review services are carefully monitored to ensure cost effectiveness without sacrificing the attention to detail which is crucial in identifying areas where value can be added. The high level of partner and manager involvement in our services results in building relationships which you can depend on for your audit and business needs. Lee Oosthuizen and Smith Inc. offers a range of audit and assurance services including, but not limited to:

  • Statutory and voluntary audits
  • Independent reviews
  • Special investigations and forensic services
  • Due diligence audits and factual findings reports
  • Internal audit services
  • Reviews of accounting systems and internal controls

Our audits comply with the professional standards of the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants and Independent Regulatory Board of Auditors.
