We will assess whether your company requires an audit. There are several criteria a company must meet to qualify for audit exempt.
These criteria are:
- The company must be a company to which the Companies (Amendment) Act 1986 applies i.e. a Private Limited Company;
- The amount of turnover of the company must not exceed €8.8 million;
- The balance sheet total of the company is less than €4.4 million at the end of its financial year;
- The average number of employees must not exceed 50;
- The company must not be a parent company or a subsidiary company;
- The company must not come within one of 19 classes of companies listed in the Second Schedule to the 1999 Act;
- The company's annual return, to which the accounts for the financial year in question are attached, must be furnished to the CRO in compliance with section 127 Companies Act 1963;
- Furthermore, where an annual return to which accounts for the immediately preceding financial year was delivered to the CRO, that return must also have been filed on time. i.e. it must not be late in the previous year;
- the year in question must be the current year - section 32 provides that the directors must be of the opinion that the company "will satisfy" the conditions - use of the future tense precludes the decision being taken in respect of a year that has already ended.
- A company which satisfies the revised exemption threshold levels in a current financial year, the year in respect of which the audit exemption is being claimed, must also have satisfied those revised threshold levels in the preceding financial year.
