Tailor-made annual financial statements
No matter whether IFRS, US-GAAP or HGB (German GAAP): Each annual financial statement and consolidated financial statement audit is individually tailored to the framework and requirements of the respective company. Careful planning and a systematic approach characterize our work. If necessary, we involve specialists for complex issues such as deferred taxes, IT, pension obligations or financial instruments in the audit process. Constant dialogue with the responsible partner ensures transparency, a smooth process and an audit without surprises.
The audit of your annual financial statements not only confirms the correctness of the figures for the past financial year. Past oriented financial information also flows into the planning and future development of the company. We also proactively provide our clients with important information and recommendations, for example with regard to process improvements.
Our audit approach
Our risk-oriented audit approach begins with a comprehensive analysis of the client's environment and business model. This enables us to tailor the audit approach to your individual requirements and to conduct the audit effectively and efficiently.
Digital audit methods
The use of modern auditing methods is a matter of course for us and an important basis for an efficient and cost-effective audit. We document our audit results completely electronically. Automated business processes and internal controls are efficiently audited on an IT basis. IT-supported analytical audit procedures enable us to obtain a quick overview of the figures in these financial statements. We use mathematical-statistical random sample selection to increase audit reliability while keeping the burden on your employees as low as possible. We take the results of data analyses into account in our audit procedures in order to identify conspicuous features and risks in a targeted manner. When obtaining balance confirmations, we achieve time and cost savings for ourselves and our clients by sending and returning them by e-mail. Of course you will receive an electronic copy of the audit report as a PDF document. We are one of the first auditing companies in Germany to deliver the audit report completely digitally with a qualified electronic signature upon request.
Audit of listed companies
The client structure of the PKF network in Germany includes owner-managed, medium-sized companies as well as listed entities. The audit of these companies is characterised by the fact that the consolidated financial statements must be prepared in accordance with IFRS. In addition, capital market and stock exchange-specific requirements lead to tight reporting deadlines. We can meet the high professional and personal requirements in particular by using experienced auditors. The audit teams deployed have extensive knowledge of IFRS, which is regularly updated. The responsible auditors have many years of experience in auditing and advising listed companies. By bringing audit procedures forward and systematically organising the audit, we ensure that the strict requirements of the capital market are fully met. Our focus is on the quality and exact timing of reporting.
