Professional Audit Services
In Singapore, an audit is mandatory if your company:
- Has a turnover of more than S$5 million per financial year; or
- If less a turnover of less than S$5 million per year, but there is a corporate body in the shareholding structure
For mandatory policies such as these, you need to engage competent professionals who have nothing but the best intentions in mind. An audit report may still be required if your company does not satisfy the above conditions. Examples will be companies that have taken banking facilities to conduct international trade in import and export. For the purposes of extending the credit facilities, banks usually require an audit report. In a situation where there are investors who are interested in investing in your company, an audit of the company's financials by a provider of professional audit services will be required.

Are there Companies which are Exempt from Audit in Singapore?
If your company does not have more than 20 shareholders, or your shares are not held by another company, then you qualify as an Exempt Private Company (EPC).
Companies that are exempt from statutory audit requirements do not have to get their accounts audited. Instead, they will have to prepare unaudited accounts for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Annual Returns filing with ACRA.
