Audit

Audit nowadays means a lot more than statutory or voluntary audits of financial statements and/or consolidated financial statements. The requirement for reliable financial information for corporate decision makers and stake holders has increased, and, as a consequence, the amount of special-purpose audits and reviews of financial statements and other assurance services has increased, too. Our assurance services and results of our engagements give certainty to the respective users of fundamental or specific information, for example in relation to their propriety, their adequacy or accuracy. This growing confidence provides a basis not only for making (quicker) decisions but creates more transparency for meeting the responsibilities of the supervisory boards or contributes to the improvement of the companies' risk management. An audit of compliance management systems in accordance with the client's needs would be an appropriate tool for this purpose.

Other core activities are the compilation of financial statements and/or consolidated financial statements in compliance with national and international accounting standards (German GAAP and IFRS). In this process, our clients are supported especially in complex accounting treatment situations or in questions of accounting according to international accounting standards (IFRS). Furthermore, we carry out all other activities associated with professional reporting, such as the installation of a powerful accounting system which meets the requirements of commercial and tax law. At the request of our clients we also keep their accounts.
