Special Audits and Other Confirmation Services

As in the case of au­dits of an­nual fi­nan­cial state­ments, the law also re­qui­res a for­mal au­dit in many other si­tua­ti­ons so as to pro­tect the va­rious in­te­rests of the com­pany, share­hol­ders, in­ves­tors, the fi­nan­cial mar­ket and other sta­ke­hol­ders. Spe­ci­fic re­gu­la­ti­ons also come into play for va­rious in­dus­tries or oc­ca­si­ons, not to men­tion the need for in­de­pen­dent, ca­pable as­sess­ments or ad­vice from ex­perts.

Com­pa­nies, their in­ves­tors, share­hol­ders and sta­ke­hol­ders also have a gro­wing need for in­for­ma­tion. Our au­dits are tailo­red to your needs – for ex­am­ple, che­cking the ac­cu­racy of clo­sing ba­lance sheets, earnings pro­jec­tions, or cor­po­rate fi­nan­cial re­por­ting – and en­sure the ne­cessary re­lia­bi­lity for the par­ties in­vol­ved.

Are you plan­ning to re­struc­ture your com­pany or group? We can as­sist you as au­di­tors for the pro­cess, and pre­pare the ne­cessary con­fir­ma­ti­ons.
