Special audit services and certifications

Special audit services and certifications are increasingly growing in significance as they provide confidence and trust. Based on our sector and trade expertise, our independent specialists evaluate and report on matters such as the correctness of information or the suitability and effectiveness of processes.

Irrespective of whether you are compiling information for recipients within or outside your company – special audit services provide increased credibility through our certifications. That boosts confidence and generates competitive advantages.

We tailor our special audit services to suit your needs – depending on the information concerned, the level of reliability required by you and the expectations of your recipients. We offer you a complete range of assurance engagements, expert reports and agreed-upon procedure reports.

An example is the certification type IDW PS 480/490 which allows the audit of a specifically defined financial component (e.g. a consolidated balance sheet). Investors and companies place a great deal of value on these certifications as the audited component can be restricted to the information which is of significance for the investors.

Further examples of our auditing services and certifications are:

  • Review of purchase price adjustments
  • Review of the IT and security concept
  • Review and analysis of the internal control system
  • Control reports (Type ISAE 3402 Type II Reports)
  • Impairment test certificates
  • IT security tests and consulting
  • Audit and advice of the risk management system
  • Detection and prevention of fraudulent (criminal) actions
  • Internal auditing
  • Audits pursuant to the German Broker and Property Developer Ordinance (MABV / Makler- und Bauträgerverordnung)
  • Review of compliance with key financial ratios
  • IFRS conversions (conversion of reporting from HGB to IFRS)
  • Assistance with initial public offerings
  • Issuance of comfort letters
