We see the audit not merely as a number of projects leading to the submission of a report on past activities, but also as a management support process, that provides continued professional advice throughout the year, seeking to ensure the reliability of the internal control environment and the accounting systems, so as to permit an adequate business risk management.
We actively seek to develop the quality and scope of both our financial and information technology audit services so as to add value to our clients’ financial reports, using all our specialized resources.
We consider the audit to be an essential tool for corporate success and have adapted it to the new demands of the market.
In addition to full examinations, PwC provides auditing services of a more limited nature, namely the so-called limited reviews, reviews of interim financial information, amongst others.
These services are carried out with the objective of issuing an independent opinion as to the reasonableness of the information contained in the financial statements, in accordance with the valuation and accounting principles, rules, criteria and methods contained in the Accounting and Financial Reporting Normalization System (SNCRF).
We have developed specific procedures aimed at identifying the areas and risk factors inherent to the businesses of the entities we audit. For the purpose, we invest in obtaining knowledge of the client’s business and in understanding the main issues of the industry it integrates, including benchmarking and best practice recommendations, feedback and technical guidance on accounting and reporting.
