BDO offers the following internal audit services:
Are you looking for an independent and objective internal audit, carried out by experts? Outsourcing your internal audit function enables you to focus on your core business. At the same time, you benefit from a neutral expert assessment, which supports your board of directors and executive committee in their decision-making processes.
Do you need flexible resources and extra support with certain tasks? By co-sourcing your existing internal audit capacity with our independent specialists, you get more objectivity and freedom in terms of how you structure the function. At the same time, you relieve pressure on your people while reducing fixed personnel expenses as well as training and recruitment costs.
External Quality Assessments (EQA) / Self Assessment with Independent Validation (SAIV)
How efficient and effective is your internal audit function? Does it meet your organisation’s needs? IIA Standard 1300 requires the chief audit executive to develop and maintain a quality assurance and improvement programme. Beyond assessing compliance with IIA standards or the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), we carry out an EQA of your internal audit to identify potential for improvement in areas such as effectiveness and efficiency.
Establishing an internal audit function
Has your company grown steadily in recent years? Has the number – and complexity – of your processes increased? Setting up an internal audit function is an effective way to address these challenges and ensure that you stay in control. Internal audit delivers valuable information to your stakeholders and makes a significant contribution to successful risk management and ongoing process optimisation. Our specialists can support you in designing and setting up an effective and efficient internal audit function.
Internal Audit ad interim
Is your internal audit department in a restructuring or transition phase? We can offer you the highest quality and security during this time. Our experts can take over the management of the internal audit on an interim basis or carry out individual audits for you.
