From voluntary audits of annual financial statements in accordance with HGB (German GAAP) to audits of IFRS consolidated financial statements of listed companies: We cover the entire spectrum of audit and assurance services.
Efficient audit approach
As auditors, we see our task not only in confirming the correctness of the accounting, but also in supporting our clients in the successful management of the company. Through our services we want to strengthen the trust of the shareholders, the employees and the public. In doing so, we gear our audit to the individual requirements of your company and are in constant dialogue with the management or the supervisory board.
Our audit approach begins with a comprehensive analysis of your company, which includes the goals and business processes. This allows the audit process to be organised effectively and efficiently. Critical issues are identified early on and surprises are avoided. The many years of expertise of our employees contribute to the timely completion of the audit.
We adapt the size and structure of our audit teams to the requirements of our clients. All audit teams are led by a partner who is in constant dialogue with the management and supervisory bodies. The partner coordinates the entire audit and identifies pragmatic and resilient solutions with you. We guarantee you decision-making competence on site and fast reaction times. Our audit teams are professionally qualified and carry out the audit with commitment. In addition to specialist knowledge and industry experience, our employees have specialist knowledge of complex accounting processes or IT solutions. We use digital methods for audit planning, audit execution and reporting. Via the international PKF network, we support you not only in Munich and throughout Germany, but also in international activities with competent experts on site.
Our partners and employees are involved in both German and international committees on audit topics that define accounting standards. We are actively involved in shaping developments and changes in the field of auditing.
Our basis for an effective and efficient audit
For us, partner management means personal responsibility. For the audit result as well as for the audit process. As auditors, we bear a great responsibility - and are aware of the expectations placed on us.
Independence and integrity
The PKF auditor’s report has a high acceptance. As a network of auditing companies, some of which are based on a tradition of over 80 years, we take care to guarantee independence and impartiality. This has made us and PKF large in Germany and strong internationally.
Our quality assurance comprises engagement-independent and engagement-related measures. In addition, we are regularly subject to the legally required external quality control by another auditing company. Independent of this, annual internal reviews are carried out to ensure compliance with the quality assurance system.
Qualification creates quality
We invest heavily in the training and further education of our employees. Our audit teams can use their comprehensive specialist and industry expertise to ensure that even complex issues are properly resolved and you receive valuable recommendations and advice for the future.
Stability in the audit team
The low fluctuation of our staff ensures a stable composition of the audit teams. Personnel continuity preserves the acquired "know-how" about your company and supports an efficient and effective audit process. This reduces the workload of your employees.
