Financial statement audit and review


Rödl & Partner offers audit services for financial statements prepared around the world in line with both local accounting principles and those in force where the holding company resides.

We are equally comfortable working with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), German GAAP or US GAAP anywhere in the world, guided by international experts from our global project management team.

The unique structure of Rödl & Partner ensures that we can carry out audits worldwide to a uniformly high standard. Because we deal with colleagues within our own firm, our methods and understanding are shared, ensuring accuracy, consistency and speed.

We believe strongly in an audit approach geared towards understanding the risks of a business. We strive to give parent companies and their shareholders a full appreciation of the financial state of their business, as well as the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

Recent discussions and new regulatory measures around the world have proved us right. More than any software tool, our approach demands highly-qualified and experienced people – in this respect we feel richly endowed.

Many years ago we addressed the issues that accompany our structure as a multi-disciplinary practice. Recent regulatory changes in many countries have rightly focused on separating audit and advisory services to public companies. But from our earliest days Rödl & Partner has adopted risk-management processes that prevent conflicts of interests.

Most of our clients, however, are private companies whose management and owners often value an integrated approach across professions. So we provide multi-disciplinary services to private companies, but in strict compliance to regulations in every country. Where the situation demands, we make sure a client has access to the best external advisors from independent partners.

Financial statement auditing is a complex process. But when it’s performed to our rigorous standards, it enhances the value of a client’s business.

If you are

  • exploring the possibility of changing audit firms
  • in need of an independent audit from a firm with a presence in many of the world's major business locations
  • looking for an audit firm of a size and structure which makes you feel a highly valued client with all your subsidiaries around the world, even if you are not a blue chip, multi-billion corporation
  • uncertain whether the audit firms appointed for your foreign subsidiaries see your group and its shareholders as their ultimate client
  • concerned that your current auditor does not sufficiently understand the international aspect of your company to perform an effective audit

Rödl & Partner can help you

We provide audit services for foreign-invested companies, but not by foreign investment desks. All Rödl & Partner all audit teams around the world specialise in audit services for local companies with foreign shareholders. Put simply, Rödl & Partner in audit does nothing else. Every audit professional working with Rödl & Partner is permanently exposed to the controls, reporting and communication expectations of a foreign shareholder.

We value the trust of our clients when they retain us to audit many or all their overseas subsidiaries – no matter how big these entities are.

Anywhere in the world, Rödl & Partner follows the strict requirements of locally applicable auditing standards and international standards on auditing (ISA). We take into account all current auditing, accounting, and reporting regulations and guidance.

Our audit clients include many medium-sized, often family-owned companies, as well as some major multinational corporations. We offer:

  • compliance with regulations
  • advice on controls and processing system weaknesses
  • confirmation of accounting treatments with respect to complex transactions
  • independent review of externally reported information
  • accountants' reports
