Financial Statement Audit

Grant Thornton professionals recognize that to deliver a quality financial statement audit, it's important to look beyond the accounting entries to the underlying activities and operations.

Public companies - For public companies, as required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, we conduct an integrated audit, which combines the financial statement audit with attestation of:

  • the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting
  • management's assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting.

Grant Thornton's integrated audit uses the same consistent approach and state-of-the art tools as our financial statement audit.

Privately owned companies - 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 build on the knowledge we gain through the audit process to advise you on how to grow and improve your business.

International audit - Although Grant Thornton International is a membership organization that does not practice accounting, its independent member firms share a commitment to common standards and methodologies, while providing the same high-quality service to clients.

Working across a wide range of industry sectors, partners and managers from Grant Thornton member firms bring sector-specific proficiency to every audit. Our professionals perform audits that stand up to the rigors of public scrutiny and are supported by state-of-the-art software and relevant technical input.

Grant Thornton's International Business Centers coordinate international assignments that draw on the local skills and knowledge of member firms.
