Benefits of using an external auditor:

Impartiality - External auditors are not involved in the day to day running of the business. Impartiality of auditors is a requirement of all management standards.

Time - Auditing is time consuming, take the pressure off internal staff and ensure your audit schedule is kept up to date so allowing focus to remain on key business activities.

Objective - Using an external auditor provides a fresh pair of eyes, more likely to identify weaknesses in your approach, enabling you to address these and build confidence in the effectiveness of the management system.

Cost Effective - A specialist management systems auditor will have gained high level qualifications and significant experience across a range of different businesses without you needing to employ a full time specialist.
