Statutory Audits

A statutory audit is an objective examination and evaluation of financial records. All information provided during an audit undergoes a verification process to confirm the financial statements are fairly stated and free of material misstatements. Audits provide the highest level of assurance.


A review is a limited analysis of any material modifications that should be made in order for financial statements to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. A review is less comprehensive than an audit; therefore, it is an expression of “limited assurance.”


A compilation is the preparation of a report in the form of a financial statement based upon information provided by the business or client. The information being compiled and reported does not go through a verification process and no assurance is expressed that the statements are in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

Michael O’Grady & Co undertakes statutory audits in the following business sectors;

  • Manufacturing & Service Companies
  • Companies Limited by Guarantee (property management companies, Child Care Facilities etc)
  • Charities
  • Co operatives (Group Water Schemes etc)
  • Credit Unions
