Review Engagements

 

Many not-for-profit organisations have a requirement in legislation, or their foundation documents, to have their financial statements reviewed by a suitably qualified professional.

A review is a type of assurance engagement to check there is nothing in the financial statements that causes the reviewer to believe they do not fairly present the results of the organisation.

At ICL Chartered Accountants we have a team of qualified people to undertake the engagement, but more importantly, to work with you to ensure the process is efficient and provides value to your organisation.



Human Resources

Your most valuable business asset is your staff. In recognition of this, and in line with our aim to help you make the most of your business, we provide an HR consulting service and can guide you into getting the best from your team.
