A. Statutory Audit

Asel Al Maayer professionals recognize that, to deliver a truly quality financial audit report, it is important to look beyond the accounting entries and to focus more on the underlying activities and operations that give rise to them.

For public companies, we conduct an integrated audit, which combines the financial statement audit with an evaluation of:

The effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting

  • Management’s assessment of the effectiveness of internal controls over financial reporting
  • Internal controls include policies and procedures that are designed to ensure that a company’s financial statements are both reliable and prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

For privately owned companies, we view the audit as the first step in developing a long-term relationship built on trust and business insight. We leverage the knowledge we gain through the audit process to advise our clients on how they can grow and improve their business. We bring valuable ideas based on years of business experience
