The need for audit and accounting services
For companies incorporated in jurisdictions like the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Cyprus and Switzerland, it is compulsory to maintain books of accounts which give a fair view of the company’s financial position. At the end of its financial year, the company is obliged to prepare full annual accounts.
An audit is an independent examination of the financial accounts and procedures of a company or organization by a qualified accountant. This is essential to determine whether the company’s financial statements present a true and fair view at a particular point in time.
Auditing is particularly important for Hong Kong companies, unless the company concerned is a dormant company. The Inland Revenue Department in Hong Kong requires a limited company to submit a set of audited accounts together with its Profits Tax Return.
