Well, we’ve worked with quite a few auditors here at Rea, and we’re happy to report that (most of them) aren’t nearly as bad as they’re made out to be. Our guest is James Moore, a supervisor on Rea’s audit team here in Dublin, who will treat you to some behind-the-scenes tips that will help make your next audit a little more enjoyable. (And if that doesn’t change your mind about the role of an auditor, he’s gonna attempt to win you over with song.) You’re on the same team. The auditor and the client are united by a common goal – issuance of a report on the client’s financial statements. If you work as a team, you can arrive there in a smooth, efficient, quick (and painless) manner. If you want a painless audit this year, you will want to listen to this episode to learn these simple tips: How to prepare yourself, your team, and your financial statements for an audit. How to set the right expectations (and understand what is expected of you). Why you should hold your auditor accountable by setting reasonable and realistic deadlines (and how to do so).
