Financial Information Review

A financial information review is a service under which the practitioner obtains limited assurance about whether the financial statements as a whole are free from material misstatement, thereby enabling the practitioner to express a conclusion on whether anything has come to the practitioner’s attention that causes the practitioner to believe the financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IFRS.
Sounds less relieving than an audit, right? A financial information review, however, is the best option for you if you’re looking for a fast cost-efficient solution.

There is no law provision in UAE that enforces this type of assurance upon your financial statements. You might request a financial statement review based on your needs.

Sometimes, the management might want to ensure the interim financial statements are faithfully presented. Or, some parties you might contract with might request to review your financial statements. They will only depend on them if they were audited or at least reviewed by a public accountant. A financial statement review will be of a great value for interim reports as it will be cost-efficient.

According to the R601.5 paragraph of the International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants which also applies to review engagements, “A firm or a network firm shall not provide to an audit client that is not a public interest entity accounting and bookkeeping services including preparing financial statements on which the firm will express an opinion or financial information which forms the basis of such financial statements…” unless certain strict conditions are met. Also, the 601.5 A1 paragraph, includes some exceptions under which we might be able to provide you with a compilation service, this is however a matter of discussion. Give us a call so we can discuss your situation.
