More than an inspection.
Our audit services include all the steps needed to successfully verify financial statements prepared in accordance with the Slovak Accounting Standards (SAS) and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), from initial familiarization with the customer’s business to verification of their Annual Report.
Audits are usually carried out in several stages. Familiarization with the accounting entity, checking of internal processes, participation in physical stock taking and verification of fixed assets and accounting records are carried out during a preliminary audit within the customer’s premises. During the final audit stage, our work focuses on the re-verification of accounting records and the checking of financial statements, the annual report, reporting, etc. The scope of work to be carried out is subject to specific conditions or the requirements of the customer. The quality and scope of work is the same regardless of whether the customer is classified as a micro accounting entity, large entity, municipality or non-profit entity.
