Mandatory audit of the annual financial statements – initial audit

Medium-sized and large corporations in the meaning of the “Handelsgesetzbuch” (abbreviated as HGB, the German commercial code) are obliged to have an annual audit done by an auditor. A corporation is medium-sized respectively large in the meaning of section 267 of the German commercial code if it exceeds two of the following three criteria in two consecutive years:

balance sheet totalsales revenuesemployees
6 million €12 million €50

“Try to clarify whether or not an audit of your company is required before the end of the fiscal year. Therefore, your auditor can attend the stocktaking and the audit can be planned better in terms of time and personnel.”

Mandatory audit of the annual financial statements – change of the auditor

Even in times of digitalization, we think that a personal meeting is essential to get to know each other. Particularly the work of an auditor is based on interpersonal trust. A personal meeting is a good foundation for building a long-term auditor-client-relationship.

Voluntary audit of the annual financial statements

The raising amount of commissions with voluntary annual audits shows, that our annual audits create additional value. We increase the trust in the numbers and are able to structure both the process of preparing the annual financial statements and the internal control system. Therefore, the annual financial statements are a reliable basis for future business decisions and plans.

If the statutes of your foundation or association dictate an annual audit of the financial statements, according to the HGB a voluntary annual audit is required. The WSB Treuhand is experienced in auditing the annual financial statements of foundations and associations and is pleased to assist you in these matters.

We offer you:

  • long-term business relationship
  • digital and paperless
  • audit according to HGB (the German commercial code) and the International Financial Reporting Standards (abbreviated as IFRS)
  • experienced employees
  • cost- and time-oriented auditing
  • close cooperation

We are looking forward to support you in issues such as audit requirements. Please contact us to arrange an appointment, call us at 0621/1234848-0 or e-mail us at wp@wsb-berater.de.

Evaluation of potentials

The reason why a company valuation is necessary as well for company acquisitions, sales and mergers, borrows as for corporate dissolutions is that the price of unlisted companies can’t be calculated through the market.

Due to the high complexity of the various recognized valuation methods, comprehensibility and plausibility of our valuation is important to us. We work closely with you and are pleased to take our time to explain in detail.

We offer you:

Optimization from the inside

The role of the internal revision has changed a lot in recent years. In the past its task was a solely control function, whereas nowadays it developed into the internal staff of the company management. The internal revision provides independent and objective auditing and consulting services as well as improves processes and systems. It allows optimizations of the internal control system and the risk management system.

Our team of qualified employees will advise you on the development and testing of an internal revision and will elaborate a custom-made concept together with you – individually adjusted to the structures of your corporation.

We offer you:

  • development and implementation of an internal revision
  • outsourcing of your internal revision
  • close cooperation
  • testing of your internal revision
  • long-term business relationship

We are looking forward to support you in all matters regarding the internal revision of your company. Please contact us to arrange an appointment, call us at 0621/1234848-0 or e-mail us at wp@wsb-berater.de

Creating transparency

During a merger or an acquisition of a company, there is usually a strong asymmetry of information between buyer and seller, which can generally only be overcome through mutual trust. By reviewing and validating of information or documents, either the asymmetry of information can be continuously reduced and trust built up or the conclusion can be drawn that an end with terror is better than terror without an end.

“Risk is what’s left when you think you’ve thought of everything.”

Carl Richards
