As a specialist audit, assurance, consulting and advisory firm you are dealing with experienced experts in our field.
As well as covering company audits we have developed niche specialisations in:
- Not-for-profit organisations (many of which are government funded)
- Local government
- Public sector
- Indigenous organisations
At Altius we understand the reporting requirements of the various Acts of State and Commonwealth Parliaments such as:
- Corporations Act
- Associations (Incorporation) Act
- Local Government Act
- Corporations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) Act – “the CATSI Act”
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 in engaging us as your auditors you can be sure all requirements of relevant legislation are addressed.
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.
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.
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. As well as understanding the statutory audit requirements indigenous organisations have to meet, 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 our audits.
