Statutory Audit

As Registered Statutory Auditors, for entities that require an audit for statutory or regulatory reasons Friel Stafford can provide a high quality audit service.

The audit of the annual financial statements is a statutory requirement for all limited companies which cannot avail of audit exemption.

Our audit team will ensure that your business is compliant with all relevant regulations under current legislation.

Our audit programmes are designed to be client specific and are tailored accordingly.

Our approach consists of detailed audit planning followed by comprehensive audit fieldwork and two way communication with directors before audit sign off

What is Audit Exemption?

A claim for audit exemption does not arise when a new company is filing its first annual return (required to be made up to the six-month anniversary of the date of incorporation) as no accounts are required to be attached to the first annual return.

Audit exemption may be claimed however at the time of the company’s first annual return with accounts or when subsequent annual returns are being filed.

In respect of the financial year concerned:

  • The company must be a company to which the Companies (Amendment) Act 1986 applies i.e. a Private Limited Company;
  • The amount of turnover of the company must not exceed €8.8 million;
  • The balance sheet total of the company is less than €4.4 million at the end of its financial year;
  • The average number of employees must not exceed 50;
  • The company must not be a parent company or a subsidiary company;
