What is the purpose of auditing and consulting?
At its core, our business is about testing, validating and certifying business management information. Our reports have the quality of a seal of approval that is trusted by decision-makers in companies as well as external stakeholders. Industry knowledge and insights from auditing enable us to offer multidisciplinary advisory services.
Our mandate is:
- Satisfaction of public information needs
In auditing, we fulfil a public mandate by carrying out statutory audits in our capacity as statutory auditors. We do this with the aim of providing external third parties with access to financial information and certainty about such information.
As statutory auditors, we also perform other tasks: for instance, we examine proposals for the appropriation of profit from the board of directors to the general meeting of shareholders as well as the interim financial statements of companies experiencing difficulties. The latter is done with the aim of assessing petitions for bankruptcy. Therefore, as statutory auditors, we also make an important contribution to creditor protection.
- Fact-based future decisions
The validation, testing and certification of information, figures and processes naturally involves a retrospective view. But it creates a valid basis for decision-makers to set the course for the future. In this way, we support and help our clients to confidently navigate dynamic markets, not only now but also in the future, and to operate appropriately in a constantly changing regulatory environment.
- Creating prospects for top performers
We invest a great deal in training and further education. With learning cases and dedicated training modules on-the-job, we challenge and encourage the talented people in our industry.
