We understand the complex areas of accounting and have the expertise and tools to audit these. A client in a high growth phase completed an acquisition on the last day of their financial year from which significant amounts of intangible assets and goodwill arose.
On short notice we were able to quickly develop an understanding of the transaction and develop an audit strategy to ensure the business combination was recorded correctly and provide support for application of accounting standards and the appropriate recognition of intangible assets and goodwill from the acquisition
We reviewed and assessed goodwill and intangibles for impairment to ensure that treatment is in accordance with Australian Accounting Standards. As part of this requirement we reviewed the assessment prepared by management for impairment indicators, analyse inputs in the calculation and stress tested to ensure conclusions on the appropriate valuation of recognised goodwill are supported by these calculations. We also reviewed to ensure correct disclosure in the financial statement.
