Grant Thornton Taiwan is committed to providing high quality assurance services to help clients navigate the prevailing climate of tightening regulatory and professional standards.

Our overall approach to auditing is a practical one, which emphasizes looking beyond the accounts and accounting entries to the underlying activities and operations that give rise to those transactions. In this way, our audits yield high levels of quality, relevance, and efficiency. Understanding these activities and operations provides insight into an organization's financial statements-and leads to a better audit. To work this way, we strive to truly understand your business, including the systems, procedures, internal controls, and people who drive the business. We are continually updating our audit approach in anticipation of our clients' changing businesses. We utilize a paperless, technology-based approach known as Voyager that, among other things, is designed to recognize the potential effects of changes in clients' businesses and the environment in which clients operate. The coordination of our risk-based “top down” approach and assessment of both quantitative and qualitative materiality factors helps us deliver work that is both innovative and efficient.

Grant Thornton Horizon audit methodology

Grant Thornton International's Horizon audit approach and Voyager software are designed to achieve a consistent standard in our audit service. We constantly review our audit methodology and software to make sure they are up-to-date with the latest audit standards and regulations.
