International Projects and Forensic Audits
In recent years, we have worked in a number of countries around the world, such as the Czech Republic, Italy, Belgium, Turkey, South Africa, Brasil and Hong Kong.
These contracts have mainly been audits of subsidiaries with a variety of different objectives:
- Company controls audits
- Compliance audits
- Management audits
- Forensic audits
We have also performed a background investigation as part of a forensic audit in the Middle East. And, of course, we have carried out a wide variety of projects in Germany.
Our international projects often involve so-called joint audits where one or several experts from the country concerned are brought in to help us ensure that local legal and cultural form is observed.
Due to our excellent connections with a range of other networks, we have access to many different experts who can be called in to assist on our international projects.
In our experience, this approach has proved to be more effective than when a project is controlled exclusively from the client’s country; in these cases it is often not possible to exert sufficient influence on the local auditor.
