Auditing and accounting

In this area, we audit mandatory or voluntary annual financial statements as well as pro forma financial statements of companies, public corporations and non-profit organizations. We specialize in auditing in accordance with national and international accounting standards, the International Accounting Standards (IFRS/IAS).

We also offer due diligence services for both transactions and organizational issues.

To ensure the highest quality in accounting, we use the latest electronic data processing technologies for our clients. The client sends us all receipts, invoices and regular documents, and we take care of all the bookkeeping, including keeping the sub-ledgers, VAT returns and payroll accounting. Our flexible and dynamic approach allows us to apply accounting measures that are tailored to the specific needs of each client.

Our experience (know-how) extends to the following sectors and areas:

  • Support in relations with various authorities
  • Access to a network of external, coordinated experts
  • Establishment of the tax domicile of companies
  • Acceptance of Supervisory Board mandates

Internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises

More and more small and medium-sized companies are interested in becoming internationally active.

From VAT registration to the preparation of reports in accordance with IAS / IFRS, we help you to plan and advance your business activities. Such an approach is underpinned by the importance we place on working directly with our clients.

This special feature distinguishes us from most other offices, where the practice of constantly “handing over” clients to different advisors prevails.

Alongside language barriers, this is one of the biggest problems.

Our services include:

  • VAT registration (personal appearance and tax representation)
  • Advice on double taxation agreements
  • Advice on investments in Switzerland and Italy
  • Establishment of branches of foreign companies and services aimed at their continued existence
  • Support in applying for VAT relief for companies not based in the country
  • Calculation of group transfer prices (transfer prices)
  • Advice on international projects and business development.
