Focusing On Key Issues
We believe that an audit should not be considered worthless, burdensome, or something a business owner dreads. We want you to expect more than just a signature on an auditors report. At Garratts we treat every audit as an opportunity to help.
We pride ourselves on establishing and maintaining effective working relationships, based on mutual trust and respect, with key players within a business. Our aim is to gain a real understanding of your business so that we can give you valuable, worthwhile and relevant financial advice.
As part of our audit approach we focus on the key issues and vulnerabilities, whilst complying with the applicable regulations, to keep audit costs to a minimum and to add value to your business. We identify risk and problem areas but also suggest improvements to your financial systems and opportunities that may serve to enhance the operation of your business.
All of our staff are friendly, courteous and professional who have worked in a number of specialist and varied audit areas. We offer the expertise of larger firms and have experience in the audit of:
✔ Friendly Societies
✔ Subsidiaries of overseas companies
✔ Pension Funds

What Our Clients Say
“ We have used Garratts for Tax Advice and the submitting of our returns to the I.R. for many years now. Apart from the efficient way in which the returns have been done it has been re-assuring to have always dealt with one accountant and to be easily able to reach her for advice when necessary. ”
Chris & Annette - Flints Partnership
“ Starting my own business was a very exciting time for me until I encountered book keeping and VAT etc., it then became very daunting but, big thanks to Garratts who explained every aspect to me in plain English so much so that I am now more than confident to keep my own accounts for my business. Not only do I consider Garratts part of my company I consider them as friends. ”
Joseph Farrow - JF Tiling Ltd.
“ After a number of years using ‘One of the Big Four’ Accountancy firms, we moved to Garratts more than a decade ago and we have been delighted with the service we’ve received. Our Company has seen a good deal of change – we’ve been through the highs and lows of the economic cycle, we’ve sold trading divisions, we’ve moved into new areas of business and we’ve expanded significantly.
Keeping control, keeping an understanding of our financial situation and keeping on top of our statutory obligations has certainly not become any easier over that time. Our relationship with Garratts has been very important to us. We get a highly professional service from faces we know well and well informed opinion and all for a very competitive price. I’m very pleased to recommend the firm to others. ”
Tim Edwards, Chariman - Boningale Ltd.
“ Since our introduction to Garratts back in 2002 when we formed the company, they have provided the tailored level of service that we needed throughout out our period of growth over the next few years. This led to the formation of another business which again Garratts formed for us and have continued to look after as we have grown in the ever difficult market sector in which we exist.
Through Garratts total understanding of the different businesses they are best placed to provide us with efficient and tax optimising solutions as we concentrate on the main activities of the businesses while always providing the day to day advice and input as and when required. ”
