AUDIT IN MÜNSTER

All areas of auditing are one of our core competencies. As independent, conscientious, discreet and self-reliant auditors, we have the claim to always perform our activities responsibly and carefully.

Since we perceive our mandate as a holistic consulting and auditing assignment, we see it as our task and primary target to create more value in addition to the independent audit. This is regularly expressed by the fact that we generate further consulting recommendations from the knowledge gained during the audit.

Statutory audits of financial statements

Due to our extensive experience in the preparation and auditing of annual, group and consolidated financial statements under commercial law, we´re able to guarantee a smooth execution of our audits. During the audit process, we accompany our clients with respect for normal day-to-day business and thus work as independently, effectively and resource-efficiently as possible.

The use of the latest auditing software and data analysis tools as well as the targeted, company-specific risk analysis, taking into account the complexity of the company or group to be audited, are the decisive factors for an efficient audit.

Furthermore, we set a high value on the compilation of our highly qualified audit teams, which convince with their performance and personalities.
