The market is changing rapidly. New earning models are constantly emerging. Companies are becoming increasingly dependent on ICT and cybercrime is nowadays a daily reality.

Just a bit different than the rest

These are risks. They are also opportunities if the company is fully “in control” of the business processes.

Where a visit from the accountant is sometimes perceived as difficult and an obligation, it is for us indeed the moment to create added value. More about that later.

When a personal touch has value for you

Compared to the large accounting firms, we are an excellent alternative for clients who value a personal touch.

Legal Audit

.

Legal audit may be statutory

Various stakeholders use your accountability when making decisions. Therefore, this information must be reliable. To protect your stakeholders, some companies require a statutory audit.

Companies that have this obligation, must have an external audit performed every year by an external accountant. Whether a company falls under the statutory audit obligation depends on the type or size thereof.

Be ahead of any problems and seize opportunities

During the external audit we investigate the reliability of your financial accountability and the risks related to that reliability (e.g. fraud risks).

Our approach focuses on the company, its objectives and the industry. This way we provide insight into the functioning of the company and we turn the audit into a valuable tool for our clients.

Thanks to our enthusiastic team and smart applications, we are regularly ahead of the problems – and this often saves a lot of time, money and headaches.

Legal audit (group accountant)

As group accountant we supervise the audit of the various parts of your organisation for your company. From the start of the audit we provide direct involvement with the management of your organisation and give the accountant of a group entity direct instructions regarding audit tasks. We use the following method for this:

  • Straightforward, clear instructions regarding the audit tasks to the accountant of the group entity.
  • Evaluation of the results of the audit tasks with the accountant of the group entity.
  • Preparation of the consolidated annual account of the group.
  • Evaluation of the results of the overall audit tasks regarding the group entities and consolidation.

This way we can establish that the financial accountability of the management of the organisation has been taken into account.

Be proud of a positive statement

Admittedly, the statutory audit is mandatory and you cannot get out of this, but our clients see it as an opportunity. And rightly so. This positive audit statement is a great selling point and a nice compliment to the management of the company!

  • Introduction with a cup of coffee

    First of all, during a personal introduction we will discuss the assignment. Among other things, we will go through the relevant developments, the ambitions of your organization, your personal ambitions, etc. This way, we will get a clear picture of the actual assignment and what you want to achieve.

  • Carrying out the assignment

    After you have agreed that we will carry out the assignment for you, we will need some documents from you. We will let you know what the items to be delivered are at this stage. If necessary, we will plan a (or another) visit to you.

  • Discussing the assignment

    After we have completed the assignment, we will personally take you through our findings. We will also evaluate the progress of the assignment itself and things like the lead time, delivery of documents and feedback with regard to the assignment.

  • Reporting

    For optimal insight, we report via a digital portal, among others. All findings and applicable documents can be found there. Of course we can also email you the documents or send them to you by post. The final step is to plan the next visit again for the upcoming period.

Voluntary Audit

.

Voluntary audit for maximum certainty

You can also have an external audit performed voluntarily. For example to give clarity to shareholders or finance providers.

Or when it is stipulated in the articles of association of the organisation, that this will be done. This is often the case with foundations, associations and cooperatives.

Improving processes based on knowledge

During the voluntary external audit we also investigate the reliability of your financial accountability and the risks regarding the reliability (e.g. fraud risks).

Just like a statutory audit, our approach focuses on the company, its objectives and the industry. This way we provide insight into the functioning of the company and we turn the audit into a valuable tool for our clients.

Thanks to our enthusiastic team and smart applications, we are regularly ahead of the problems – and this often saves a lot of time, money and headaches.

Be proud of a positive statement

With a voluntary audit, the positive audit statement is obviously also a great selling point and a nice compliment to the management of the company!

Review Assignment

.

Reassurance without an extensive audit

Certainty about your figures is very reassuring. However, an extensive external audit is not always required for this certainty. In some cases we can give our clients the same peace of mind with a review assignment. In addition, there are other reasons to carry out a review assignment.

Review of processes and figures

In certain cases and professional groups, a review assignment is mandatory based on legislation and regulations. Insurance companies or banks sometimes request additional security.

The review assignment is an intermediate form between the external audit and the preparation of the annual account. For a review assignment, the existence of the internal control system is established, but its operation is not tested.

Preparing for a future audit

When a statutory (or voluntary) audit is expected to become applicable to a company, the review assignment is often a good start for a smooth and efficient external audit.

Due Diligence

.

Know for sure what is going on

A company takeover is often a major decision that has a lot of impact on your future or that of your company. When making a decision with so much impact, you want to be sure that you have all the information, but that this is also reliable.

Our clients usually engage us for due diligence in situations where there is a form of company takeover. For example, changes in the control and ownership of the company, mergers and takeovers, the formation of joint ventures, or the introduction at a stock exchange.

Avoid nasty surprises afterwards

The objective of our due diligence investigation is to avoid surprises afterwards and to be able to estimate the true value of a company.

Do you have a clear and full view of the situation in legal, economic, fiscal and commercial terms? Are you aware of any obligations and everything that is going on? What risks does your decision entail?

Our clients gain insight into the opportunities and risks that their final decision entails. We communicate the findings of our investigation to our clients accompanied by a due diligence report.

Having a strong position when negotiating

With our due diligence investigation we both ensure that you are in a strong position when negotiating, so you can make a well-considered decision and you avoid costly surprises afterwards.

Grant and Other Statements

.

Certainty about grants

Companies can request and receive grants. These grants are often provided under certain conditions. These conditions ensure that the grants are used lawfully.

In addition, conditions may be imposed on the method of accountability and the audit thereof by an external auditor.

Retain entitlement to grants

Thanks to the experience we have gained in this area, we can efficiently audit the grant accountability of our clients. Together we ensure that our clients retain their entitlement to the applicable grant(s).

Other Statements

Ambitions of organisations can constantly come together or diverge with those of other organisations. Ambitions are often accompanied by growth. At a certain moment, growing companies are often faced by three choices – merger, demerger or takeover.

The conditions under which this is done are mutually determined by the parties involved. These conditions must be established and checked for their reality and justice. For this, you can rely on us as an accountant. We support clients with regard to:

  • Merger statements
  • Takeover statements
  • Assurance reports
  • Introduction with a cup of coffee

Assignment-oriented Quality Assessment and Dossier Inspections

.

Laws and regulations

According to the WTA, an audit firm is obliged to have a mission-oriented quality assessment carried out during the annual accounts audits of public-interest entities (PIE). In addition, a PIE may be carried out voluntarily in the case of a non-PIE audit engagement. This depends on the requirements of the quality system of your office.

Due to the change in the European and therefore also Dutch regulations for accountants, the rules for Assignment-oriented Quality Assessments (AQA) have been amended. In the case of a statutory audit, an AQA must now be carried out by an external auditor who is registered in the AFM register. For many accountancy firms, which have their AQA carried out by an external quality assurance agency, this can lead to problems because the external auditor is not an external accountant.

What can we do for you?

Taxture Audit is licensed by the AFM to carry out statutory audits (non-PIE). Our responsible accountants are therefore also registered as external auditors. Thanks to our expertise in carrying out audits in (large) SMEs, healthcare and at foundations and associations, you can call on us to carry out an AQA or a file inspection.

The difference between an AQA and a file inspection lies mainly in the timing of the quality assessment. An AQA must be completed before the audit report can be issued and a file inspection can be carried out after the audit report has been issued. Both quality assessments contribute to increasing the quality of the audit engagement.

Our external auditors have experience in carrying out quality assessment and also deal with AQAs and file inspections in daily practice. In addition, the SRA conducts periodic file reviews of our own files. The assessment of the recent reviews by the SRA was positive.

For the performance of the AQAs and file inspections, we make use of renowned assessment work programmes.

Common goal

Just like you, we have the same goal in mind when carrying out an AQA or file inspection. Increasing the quality of the control and the control file. We do not want to undermine your audit file, but we strive to improve your file.

Pre-audit Services

.

Pre-audit services

Medium and large companies are required by law and regulations to have their annual accounts audited by an auditor. Foundations and associations may also be required to carry out audits on the basis of the articles of association and require an auditor’s report.

The preparations for this audit often take a lot of time for your employees.

What are pre-audit services?

With pre-audit services, your financial administration is made ‘audit-ready’, before the auditing accountant starts auditing the annual accounts. This ensures a high quality delivery of documents and reduces the burden on your employees. In addition, and based on our findings, we can help the company to improve its internal control.

  • Our pre-audit services consist of:
  • Drawing up the annual accounts in accordance with legislation and regulations
  • Offer assistance in the preparation of the management report
  • Drawing up the tax position(s)
  • Drawing up and submitting the annual accounts specifications on the basis of the ‘list of documents to be submitted’ of the auditor
  • Drawing up a manual or process descriptions
  • Communication with the auditor

Once the audit has been completed by the auditor, we can help you to improve internal control and management reporting. We can also help you to follow up on the points for improvement following the management letter of the accountant.

Benefits for you

  • We take a large part of the communication with the auditing accountant off your hands. We deliver documents the way the accountant wants them and inform the accountant of any particularities in the annual accounts
  • This reduces the burden on your employees
  • A draft annual accounts in accordance with the applicable legislation and regulations
  • Shorter turnaround time for the audit
  • The tax position of your company is coordinated with a tax specialist
  • Reducing additional work discussions
  • The internal control and the depth of your management reports improves

Extensive experience

Our pre-audit services are carried out by experienced professionals. Our employees have extensive experience in compilation and auditing practice and therefore have sufficient knowledge of auditing, external reporting and tax matters.

Our employees have experience in auditing the (large) SME and healthcare sector and in auditing foundations and associations.
