Audit & Accountancy

With financial reporting standards continuously being introduced, keeping up with the production of accurate and timely year end accounts can be a burden. Whether you're a private company, partnership, sole trader or charity our focus is more than simply accounts preparation; we put the figures into perspective so you can make informed decisions and get the best out of your business.

Our specialist advisers can help with:

  • Year end accounts planning, preparation, compliance and reporting
  • Audit planning, review and reporting
  • Regulatory audits
  • Specialist audits
  • Cash flow projections
  • Payroll
  • Bookkeeping
  • Internal control reviews
  • Due diligence
  • Charity SORP compliance


We view each audit as a chance to give meaningful insights into your business while ensuring that strict compliance requirements are met so you can obtain maximum benefit from your accounts. Once complete, you'll receive a Key Issues Memorandum report containing key findings of the audit, an analysis of your current accountancy systems and recommendations for improvements or changes where appropriate.

With over 40 qualified advisers throughout the firm we have the resources to tailor our approach to your way of working and place particular importance on continuity of staff from one assignment to the next so you are dealing with people familiar to you and your organisation.

Grant Audits

The UK Government and EU continue to provide grant funding of both technology and research projects. These vary from single company awards to multi participant transnational collaborative consortia.

Typically you will find strict reporting deadlines and a requirement for interim and final audits of claims submitted. Rules differ between funding bodies and so it is important that you understand the reporting requirements. PEM have specialist expertise in establishing cost methodologies, reporting systems and in auditing grant claims satisfying EU Framework 7 and Horizon 2020, Technology Strategy Board and specific funder requirements.
