Pension scheme audit

The modern pension environment is highly regulated and places significant regulatory and monitoring obligations on trustees. Trustees need to be able to rely absolutely on their auditors and advisors to ensure pension scheme compliance.

Our audit team works with pension trustees to assess the key pension risks associated with a scheme and tailors our audit approach to ensure we capture and scrutinise it. Our professionals are fully versed in pension legislation and ensure compliance with pension audit regulations.

Our pension scheme audit can tie in with our internal audit, and our systems and controls audit procedures, to ensure the most rigorous, efficient and cost effective pension audit or review process. It can also be accessed as a standalone service.
