We use an internationally recognised audit methodology and prepare paperless audit files. All Staples Rodway firms are registered under the Auditor Regulation Act 2011 to audit issuers.

Staples Rodway has a dedicated accounting technical team that is able to advise clients on complex financial reporting issues, such as those that arise when reporting under New Zealand equivalents to International Financial Reporting Standards. Our technical team also runs financial reporting update seminars for clients and publishes regular technical updates.

Staples Rodway utilises a risk based audit methodology that requires a thorough understanding of our client’s organisation, its goals and objectives, key business risks, operations and financial processes. This understanding not only provides the foundation for a highly effective audit, but also gives us insights which we use to provide further value to our clients.

Staples Rodway provides a range of audit, assurance and risk management services.

Statutory Audit

Our risk based audit methodology provides the foundation for a highly effective audit that provides assurance and gives insights into key areas of business risk. Whilst audits provide assurance to various stakeholders, other benefits from a Staples Rodway audit include:

  • Where required, an examination of compliance with regulatory obligations
  • Providing an independent and commercially based view of performance
  • Enhancing overall corporate governance processes
  • Opportunities for improved business performance through identification and effective communication of issues and other business insights arising from the audit

Trust account & other audit

Staples Rodway has extensive experience in undertaking the audit of solicitors’ and real estate agents’ trust accounts and providing advice on appropriate trust accounting policies. We also undertake other non-statutory audits, including audits for private equity investors and other financiers.

Prospectus audit

Staples Rodway undertakes the audit of debt, equity and participatory securities prospectuses. Our experience in assisting clients with IPOs enables us to provide detailed advice on stock exchange, securities legislation and Financial Markets Authority requirements.

Review engagements

If assurance is needed, but a full audit is not required, Staples Rodway’s expert team can assist by undertaking a review engagement.

Acquisition due diligence

Investigation before purchasing a business is critical to ensuring an understanding of the risks and benefits of purchase. We assist our clients who are seeking to expand through acquisition by providing rigorous pre-purchase due diligence investigations. We are also able to call on the experience of the business sales team at Baker Tilly Transaction Services, which gives us a solid understanding of the transactions market and a unique insight into the vendor’s perspective on a proposed transaction.

Enterprise risk management

Staples Rodway provides guidance to management on the execution of a cross functional approach to risk management that focuses on the identification and management of those key business risks that are most likely to impact on achievement of strategic objectives.

Internal audit

Staples Rodway provides outsourced and co-sourced internal audit services that focus on the development and execution of risk based audit plans that are designed to rigorously test existing control procedures and identify appropriate improvements.

Fraud prevention & investigation

We can assist with the development of systems designed to reduce the likelihood of fraud. Where a fraud is suspected or detected, we can conduct a thorough investigation and, if required, document findings for legal proceedings.
