MGA Approved Audit Service Provider

Since the inception of the gaming industry in the Maltese jurisdiction, Capstone Assurance Ltd has been at the forefront on developing a dedicated and highly experienced team to manage audit and assurance engagements for the remote gaming sector. This initiative has been led by our audit partner, Mr. Kris Baron who has extensive knowledge and experience in the gaming industry.

Following changes to Approved Audit Service Provider Policy, Capstone Assurance Ltd officially attained recognition as an approved ‘Statutory Auditor’ by the Malta Gaming Authority. This approval by the MGA represents a significant milestone for our team, and we are proud to be recognised by the MGA, a testament to our commitment to excellence and adherence to industry standards.

MGA Approved System and Compliance Audit Service Providers

Being an approved System and Compliance Auditor by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Capstone Group, can audit and review your systems in line with the MGA’s requirements and industry best practice.

A preparatory or quality-improvement ‘mock’ engagement can also take place which would serve as a general review, with a set action plan that will prepare and assist any operator to undertake and conclude successfully the actual Compliance and Audit Review performed by the MGA.

Mr. Kris Baron, Compliance Partner at Capstone Assurance, was formerly a Systems and Financial Auditor within the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), managing Malta Licensed Gaming Operators and their respective Systems and Compliance Audit Reviews. Mr. Baron is also CISA qualified and leads the firm’s Compliance & System Audit as well as the IS & IT Assurance units of the firm.

What our clients say

“The services of Capstone Assurance have been invaluable to our group of companies. They have provided us with Tax and Audit services since the very beginning. Although Capstone Assurance Ltd primarily handles our audit work, they have assisted us with several other specific projects and are fully committed to keeping us moving in the right direction. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable about our business and industry, their client service is exceptional.”

“Cannot speak highly enough of the professional service given by Capstone. Equipped with knowledgeable, professional, down to earth staff which are always available with any financial query put forth. The audit for both our companies has been a smooth process which saved us valuable time in order for us to focus on our core business objectives.”

Joseph Rizzo, Concorde International Freight Forwarders Ltd

“Working with Capstone as auditors has been a pleasant professional experience for us. Their industry knowledge and expertise, and their attention to detail in critical areas, saved us invaluable time and made the audit process exceptionally smooth. It is thanks to Capstone’s commitment that we managed to meet our deadlines and that quality financial statements were prepared. It is a pleasure working with a team that combines industry expertise with the highest standards of professionalism.”

Darryl Cassar, Finance Manager at Hero Gaming

“Having worked as an auditor and also being on the other side, to be audited, you have a set conception of what you expect from the auditor. I must say, in my 37 years of corporate dealings, meeting with investment bankers, external auditors, Internal auditors, and tax accountants, it has been a very humbling experience working with the team from Capstone. Their dedication to the work, and the methods in which they work together with our team to maintain the necessary quality standards to meet statutory regulatory requirements, and also their recommendations in making the accounting process more efficient and easier for audit has been great. Capstone’s provision of services has been second to none and their insight has made the regulatory audit work an interesting one.”
