Our services in the field of audit and assurance
Audit of Financial Statements
In the accounting and auditing field, our activities focus on carrying out voluntary and legally required year-end audits of annual company accounts and group financial statements in accordance with HGB, IFRS or US-GAAP. We also review reporting packages in the course of a year-end audit, as well as carrying out various spot checks.
The first step of any year-end audit is to gain a thorough understanding of the client's business. We analyse and evaluate the economic and legal environment, the business risks, the internal control systems and the risk management system. On the basis of this information, we develop a company-specific, risk-oriented auditing strategy.
Highly motivated auditors, supported by experienced and reliable auditing teams, guarantee short communication and decision paths. We tend to address critical issues at an early stage in order to find solutions in good time.
Our internal quality assurance system and our staff's ongoing further professional development guarantee compliance with national and international auditing standards. We have not only successfully passed a quality control check as per § 57 a of the WPO German certified public accountants and auditors act, our quality assurance system is also ISO certified. As a Morison Global member, we are also able to support all international activities with the help of competent local experts.
The ultimate result of our efforts are informative audit reports which significantly increase closing figure reliability and recipient confidence. In addition, we advise our clients on internal control and risk warning system efficiency. So we provide additional support to those responsible for the management of the business, and ensure that they can rely on their corporate figures.
Apart from year-end audits, there are numerous other contractually or legally required audits that call for certification or confirmation by a professional third party.
