Trust is an important basic element for your entrepreneurial success. On an operational level, mutually successful business transactions over a longer period of time strengthen the trust between your company and your business partners. The quality assurance of your financial information by an independent auditor gives shareholders, investors and other stakeholders (e.g. credit institutions or suppliers) a higher degree of security and thus strengthens the trust in your reporting.
As auditors in Berlin and Leipzig, we are your contact for the design of the type and scope of purpose-oriented auditing services. As auditors, we focus on the essentials and have your back free so that you can concentrate on your core business.
An audit of the consolidated financial statements or annual financial statements by an independent auditor increases the confidence in your financial reporting, regardless of whether you are required to do so by law or contract or have such an audit carried out voluntarily. The addressees of the financial statements (e.g. investors or credit institutions) can thus access reliable figures and make their further decisions without having to carry out extensive plausibility assessments themselves.
With a risk-oriented audit approach combined with a focus on your company's internal processes and controls, our auditors from Berlin Adlershof and Leipzig concentrate on the essentials and can thus ensure efficient audit execution.
As a subsidiary of an international group, you are obliged to send reporting packages to the parent company in accordance with group-wide accounting standards. The figures contained therein are usually checked by a local auditor or quality assured in some other way. The type and scope of the audit procedures depend on the materiality of the company involved.
In addition to carrying out (voluntary) annual audits as part of the audit, the audit of individual parts of the financial statements, an auditor's review or other agreed audit procedures (agreed-upon-procedures) can also be used.
An auditor's review (IDW PS 900, ISRE 2400 and ISRE 2410) is a cost-effective alternative to an annual audit by auditors with the aim of increasing confidence in financial reporting.
In addition, the ongoing financial accounting can also be subjected to a review during the year and, if necessary, a consolidated financial statement can be prepared. In a previously determined cycle (e.g. monthly or quarterly), the financial accounting is reviewed by an auditor according to different criteria with the aim of pointing out potential compliance risks in good time and reducing them as well as making tax optimizations. Our auditors will also support you with the audit review.
In addition to auditing brokers and property developers (Section 16 MaBV), our auditors also carry out audits in accordance with Section 53 HGrG and other transaction-related special audits (including foundation audits, audits of contributions in kind and capital increases, merger audits).
Audit subjects can be designed very differently and agreed individually (e.g. the internal control system at the level of service providers, financial covenants, audits within the meaning of Section 4h (2) EStG on the interest barrier, and much more).
