Our support includes providing any data we have processed in accordance with the applicable regulations for data access by tax authorities during audits (so-called GDPdU). If requested, we are the first point of contact for any of the auditor’s questions. During the audit we continuously clarify any questions that arise with the auditor and promptly provide further required documents to ensure that the audit runs smoothly.
Audits can be held in our offices, if the authorities approve and the necessary documents are provided.
Our audit support includes holding the closing meeting. In contentious matters we generally strive for a compromise with the auditor. If this is not possible or reasonable, we aim to ensure that your interests are enforced by objectionor legal proceedings.
