Audit & corporate finance

Accurate and transparent financial information : insight into your figures

The availability of accurate and transparent financial information is of the utmost importance in today’s socio-economic context, in the broadest sense of the word.
Stakeholders such as shareholders, suppliers, banks and other creditors, staff and authorities all depend upon reliable financial reporting. In this respect the auditor’s responsibility has been defined by law.
In addition, thanks to his experience and specialization, the auditor can advise you, assist you and guide you as a client in complicated operations such as acquisitions.
Furthermore, we are well-placed to help you develop internal administrative corporate processes and internal auditing procedures within your organisation.
Thanks to the international ‘Baker Tilly’ network, to which we belong, country borders are no obstacle.
Also for any assistance in disputes, you can appeal to our services.
If you need expert advice on financing charts and budget preparation, our specialists will be glad to help.

How do we work?

Statutory auditor mandates and audit assignments

Auditing always starts with a risk analysis. That is why a good understanding of the company is of paramount importance.
Therefore our audit approach is always focused on the client’s specific needs and requirements. This is the case both for multinationals and for SMEs.
That is why a lot of attention is paid to the planning and preparation of each audit.
Furthermore we do not exclusively consider an audit to be just a “burdensome” control. When we identify weaknesses in the system of internal control, in the measures to prevent fraud, or in the processes of financial reporting, we will bring them to your attention with our recommendations on how these should be addressed. Of course this will always happen within the strict lines of independence.
Both at the beginning of the audit process and (certainly) at the end, the responsible and undersigning partner will evaluate the file together with the staff, and finally discuss it with the client in person.

Other audit assignments and activities

In collaboration with our other experienced professionals, we offer the necessary expertise for the requested services, tailored to the client’s specific needs.
For example, guidance in case of an acquisition will often be realized by a multidisciplinary team, comprising an auditor, a tax specialist, a legal expert and a VAT specialist. If the acquisition is realized in another country, also the knowledge and expertise of the internationally recognised experts within the global Baker Tilly International network may be of paramount importance.
