Audits can often be stressful and time consuming. In order to help minimise the disruption to your business you will need to ensure that you are prepared for the audit – this means having the relevant documentation available for the auditor to consider.
Non-compliance typically occurs when businesses fail to register for all relevant taxes, fail to keep proper records and fail to lodge forms on time or report correct information.
You should implement an appropriate document retention policy and administrative filing to enable you to retrieve records efficiently during an audit.
The information you are required to provide to the auditor will depend on the reason for the audit.
