Under German law, statutory audits may only be carried out by auditors, certified public accountants and their relevant professional bodies.
Reserved duties in relation to statutory audits are carried out by Matthias Keil, who is a qualified auditor. The quality standards that apply to his work have been confirmed by external quality control processes, and following this examination, he has been certified by the Chamber of Auditors as a member of quality standards system. This certification is valid until June 2020.
In addition, Matthias Keil acts as an auditor, providing audit services in response to contractual requirements or for internal purposes, auditing the year-end financial statements of small and medium-sized partnerships and companies.
His audit activities also include carrying out specific audits in the form of:
- Company incorporation audits
- Audits of internal control systems
- Audits of management and organisational structures
- Audits for compliance with broker and building contractor regulations
- Subsidy invoice audits (e.g., ESF, SPI)

The range of services on offer is completed by internal audits. Internal audit is an important tool of management control, used to support the management team directly, and is based on a multi-year, rolling audit plan covering areas of the business that are particularly sensitive or significant.
If you prefer to do without company-wide internal audits, Mr. Keil will be happy to support you in relation to individual projects and through the provision of a multi-year audit plan featuring targeted recommendations to highlight areas of particular interest.
The nature and scope of the audits can be determined by mutual agreement.
