Strategy & Value Added
Our approach in any assignment undertaken by the firm will be dependent upon the terms of reference and the general framework (legal, statutory or otherwise) in which we are required to report.
The method adopted by the firm is that combination that will lead to the most efficient and cost effective approach that obtains the desired objective using the available resources. We ensure that where our report or services are directed, there will always be value added to the base exercise and that we report, act and generally think within the profession’s code of ethics and guidelines.
The firm’s policy is to program a continuous endeavor to upgrade its system and approach by re-educating, re-tooling, use of approved standardized programs, software technologies (including applications and cloud based systems) and other computerized audit and analytical aids so as to meet our clients highest expectations.
For consultancy services, we work closely with management to build quality into the process and recommend activities, controls and/or improvements to existing applications in order to remedy and plan for future implications (whether known or unknown).

We have employed the use of software technologies in this regard and our team are continuously trained in accordance with our training and development policy.
