Legal and contractual audit

Auditing is essential to improving your performance and risk management. It consists of a process of verification and evaluation of the accuracy and compliance of a company with certain required standards (accounts, processes, products, systems). The audit will identify deficiencies, inefficiencies, risks and opportunities for improvement, in order to provide recommendations to correct or improve them.

The accounts must reflect the economic situation of your company. The audit of the financial statements certifies their sincerity and allows the detection of possible errors or inconsistencies. The certification of the annual accounts by our independent auditors will then reinforce your confidence and credibility with your various stakeholders such as shareholders, partners, creditors and financiers for example. The results of the analysis provided by our auditors are important because they also allow these stakeholders, such as management or partners, to take appropriate decisions to improve the financial and operational management of the entity. It will also make it easier for you to understand and manage risks.


Contractual audit

The legal audit, framed by the law, has the particularity of being based on the application of national and international audit standards. The contractual audit is adapted to your more specific needs, for example

Inventory valuation
Risk prevention
Valuation in view of company restructuring operations
Evaluation of liabilities and assets…
The famous due diligences used within the framework of the operations of transmission concern the contractual audit.

As the audited company, you are able to freely determine the terms of our audit mission. We will determine together the scope, the object and the planning of the desired audit mission.


Obligation thresholds: Article 9 of the Loi Pacte Commissaires aux Comptes 2019

As a manager, you may be obliged to appoint an auditor who will have to check the regularity and sincerity of your company’s accounts.

The Loi Pacte commissaire aux comptes 2019 has raised the threshold for the obligation to identify an auditor. It distinguishes 3 criteria:

  • The balance sheet total
  • The turnover before tax
  • The number of employees during the financial year

The thresholds for the obligation to appoint a statutory auditor are now as follows

  • Balance sheet total: 4 million euros
  • Turnover: 8 million euros excluding tax
  • Workforce: 50 employees

This obligation affects all companies that exceed 2 out of 3 thresholds, regardless of their legal form. Nevertheless, you can voluntarily call upon the services of an auditor.
