Providers of Funds

A further point to note is that modern companies can be very large with multinational activities. Preparing accounts for such a group becomes a very complex operation that could involve bringing together and summarizing the accounts of subsidiaries with differing accounting systems. All accounts are required to conform to very detailed and complex requirements of the Companies Act (CAP 486) and also to the requirements of the many International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs). Taking these points into consideration therefore, it becomes necessary that to give credibility to the accounts an independent qualified expert be appointed to objectively investigate the accounts and then report his findings to all interested parties, primarily the shareholders as required by the Companies Act, but also to other providers of funds and relevant regulatory authorities.
