Struggling Revolution Beauty will be investigated over its failure to complete its auditing quickly enough. 

Law firm Macfarlanes and consultants Forensic Risk Alliance will begin an investigation into the business after its auditor, BDO, raised ‘serious concerns’ over its inability to publish an audit report for the latest financial year.
