Advisory Services

As a specialist audit, assurance, consulting and advisory firm you are dealing with experienced experts in our field. Our niche specialisations include:

  • Not-for-profit organisations (many of which are government funded)
  • Local government
  • Public sector
  • Indigenous organisations

We advise on compliance with accounting standards, funding body accountability requirements and how best to prepare for your annual external audit.

Not-for-profit sector

The not-for-profit sector is experiencing considerable change in accountability requirements with the introduction of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (“ACNC”). At Altius we are across these changes, so we can advise you on the specific requirements that apply to your organisation and how you can comply cost-effectively and efficiently.

Local government

The expertise of our people at Altius has been recognised for many years by successive Auditors-General. We have been appointed to audit the majority of the Councils in the Far North, Cape York and Torres Strait regions as well as many in the Gulf of Carpentaria. We have a depth of knowledge of the local government sector matched by few other firms in the region. This allows us to provide many non-statutory audit services to local government via our assurance, advisory and consulting services.

Altius’ services include advice on compliance with accounting standards, local government finance standards and how best to prepare for your annual external audit.

Public sector

In the wider public sector Altius people have worked with other statutory bodies such as Government Owned Corporations in sectors as diverse as transport, water, retail and tourism. We understand the accountability and audit requirements from our contract audit appointments by successive Auditors-General. Our deep understanding of these allows us to provide many non-statutory audit services to statutory public sector bodies via our assurance, advisory and consulting services.

We advise on compliance with accounting standards, local government finance standards and how best to prepare for your annual external audit.

Indigenous organisations

The region Altius calls home has one of the highest indigenous populations in Australia. We are proud to service many prominent indigenous organisations in the region and to have done so for many years. We have built many enduring relationships with our indigenous clients. We work sensitively and in harmony with our clients with an acute awareness of cultural sensitivities in performing each engagement.
