Champion Accountants has announced that it has been appointed auditor of a Welsh jewellery specialist, Clogau, replacing the services of a one of the “Big Four”.
Clogau revealed it had formerly used a top four auditor, but market conditions disrupted the relationship, so it approached the firm for its auditing and payroll services.
The firm will commence its audit of the jeweller in the upcoming months, whilst practicing its socially distanced site visits and various digital means to complete on time.
Danny Evans, finance director at Clogau, said: “We are delighted to appoint Champion Accountants as our new auditors. We were most impressed with their knowledge and understanding of the Clogau brand and attention to detail at every level.
“Having Champion on board as auditors will ensure that our small network can be better supported as we look forward to continued growth and success through 2021.”
Andrew Hopwood, director at Champion Accountants, added: “Stock takes and audits have proven particularly difficult in recent months; many auditors have flatly refused to visit sites leaving customers concerned about whether their audit can be completed.
“By taking a practical and pragmatic approach, we have been able to support our clients throughout this difficult period as well as relieving any concerns about compliance with regulatory obligations.”
