IT Audit and IT Consulting

Information technology (IT) found its way into all spheres of life – including accounting, tax law and especially into our clients' companies. In all these areas process without IT involvement are no longer imaginable. Whether electronic Commercial Register, e-balance sheet, IT-based financial statement audits and tax audits – there are many points of contact. Processes in companies mainly are based on IT anyway or are even dominated by it in certain areas.

Our approach to consulting combines all these areas – we offer IT system audits, audits of internal controls and processes, migration testing, data analyses and IT-specific tax advice (for example audits according to the principles of data access and auditing of digital documents ('GDPdU'), e-balance sheet, electronic invoice). We will be pleased to support our clients or other auditors and tax consultants in all upcoming questions regarding IT.

Here public auditors, tax consultants, lawyers and IT specialists are working in teams across the disciplines to ensure that the problems are examined under all aspects to arrive at optimum results for the clients. We do not perform 'isolated' audits, but look at our client's issues from different perspectives, be it trade law, tax law, company law or IT-specific questions.
