What we do

Many organisations today need additional resources for responsibilities that only grow with your success. A clear perspective or an informed opinion can help business establish robust internal controls, use information technology effectively, and manage regulatory compliance. Our expertise will also strengthen your governance processes, implement sound organisational strategies, increase your technological capabilities and drive greater operational efficiency.

The following areas are just some of the strategic and operational issues we provide advice and assistance on.

Internal audit

Critical to good governance and business performance, our internal audits provide rigorous and independent support that’s fully compliant with International Standards. We also offer outsourced internal audit and co-sourced internal audit services, and peer reviews of internal audit functions.

Legislative and regulatory compliance

We deliver relevant, timely and practical advice. Fully cognisant of all relevant legislative and regulatory requirements, including the Corporations Act, the Privacy Act, the WHS Act and APRA’s Prudential Standards, we’ll ensure your obligations are met, every time.

Risk management

Effective risk management gives companies the confidence to act on future business decisions. With a comprehensive review of all relevant policies and procedures, our business risk specialists can help develop or enhance your organisation's risk management procedures.

Internal controls & process risk

As your business grows it’s vital to ensure your control environment does also, to support continuing success. We’ll ensure your processes, systems and controls enhance your business value, rather than dilute it.


Your governance structures underpin optimum corporate performance. Whether fully listed or private and looking to adopt best practice, we’ll work with you to ensure rigorous compliance.

Data analytics

Our specialists understand how to extract information from multiple sources to create context, connections and meaning. From this we’ll draw out actionable insights, verify outcomes and draw conclusions to protect your business IP.
