Do I have to have my company's books audited each year?

In Canada, the United States and the UK, there are exemptions that exempt many private limited companies from having to have their annual financial statements audited. However, if the number of shareholders exceeds a certain number or if the company's revenues are above a certain threshold, the company may be required to produce audited financials. If the shares are traded publicly, an audit is required.
