As an auditor of companies of public interest (§ 319a HGB), we fulfil the requirements to provide the public with information about our company, by publishing the Transparency Report.
The Transparency Report was prepared according to Article 13 of the Regulation (EU) No 537/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on specific requirements regarding statutory audit of public-interest entities and repealing Commission Decision 2005/909/EC.
The Transparency Report has to contain certain information about the company structure and the integration in a professional network as well as our internal quality assurance system. This includes remarks on the fulfillment of the professional requirements with regard to auditor independence, the obligations to training activities, the basis of remuneration and the principles of rotation. Furthermore, this Transparency Report contains certain financial information.
With the Transparency Report we afford the public an insight into how we implement the professional quality requirements in practice.
