What is the difference between a good and a very good auditor?
In our opinion, a very good auditor does not only accomplish his or her task of a voluntary or legal audit, but also creates an additional benefit for the company which is to be audited.
Here, the personal relationship between the responsible auditor and the management or the supervisory board of the company which is to be audited, plays an important role. We place great demands on being a competent contact partner for the company!
Due to our extensive experience in the field of auditing, we are able to guarantee a minimization of everyday work interferences which are caused by the audit. Thus, we believe in a personnel consistency within the auditing team so that the company’s business concept and processes do not have to be explained every year.
We listen to our clients and also address questions and needs within the scope of an audit of annual accounts. This also includes that a trusted contact partner is on site and that we can assure short decision making processes. By using the newest EDP-supported audit approaches, we do not only ensure a qualitatively advanced, but also an efficient audit.
To us, the audit of annual accounts is not a solely orientated realization of a legal requirement. We align our audit approach with purposefully pointing out weak spots within the company and supporting it in order to strive for a better organization in the future. We place importance on a transparent communication so that the management is informed about audit findings at any time and knows the latest status of the audit.
Our reports are orientated towards the legal requirements, but complemented by meaningful, company-specific information. Therefore, the so-called management-letter after the completion of an audit of annual accounts belongs to a standard-“by”-product of our work.
