Peer Review

Quality has to be up to snuff – and that goes for an auditor’s services too. That’s why accountants and auditors, together with their companies, must undergo external quality control, also known as “peer review.”

Acco­un­t­ants, audi­tors and their com­pa­nies are allo­wed to per­form legally man­da­ted audits of finan­cial sta­te­ments only if they regu­larly undergo this qua­lity con­trol them­sel­ves and can pre­sent cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of their parti­ci­pa­tion no later than the time when they accept an audit enga­ge­ment. The Cham­ber of Acco­un­t­ants and Audi­tors (Wirt­schafts­prü­fer­kam­mer) can allow excep­ti­ons only in spe­cial cases.

We are regis­te­red as a qua­lity con­trol audi­tor with the Ber­lin Cham­ber of Acco­un­t­ants and Audi­tors, and can per­form a peer review of your practice. Whe­ther your ope­ra­tion is big or small, our exper­tise and our under­stan­ding of eco­no­mic sec­tors enable us to cover the full range of com­pa­nies and per­form exter­nal qua­lity con­trol with the skills you need. Besi­des our spe­cia­li­zed know­ledge, you can also count on our fri­endly, pro­fes­sio­nal coope­ra­tion, adhe­rence to dead­li­nes, and of course, con­fi­den­tia­lity. Peer review is per­for­med by expe­ri­en­ced col­lea­gues and prac­ti­tio­ners in qua­lity assurance for acco­un­ting and audi­ting. In spe­cial cases, such as audits of cli­ents in spe­cia­li­zed fields, we bring in experts with spe­cia­li­zed abi­li­ties.
