Your company auditor looks at more than just your figuresThinking about an acquisition, restructuring or merger? Do the bank, government, other partners and/or your investors want to be reassured first with up-to-date figures or certified annual accounts before they will grant you financing or be willing to work with your company? Having an audit conducted by an accredited company auditor gives you a crystal-clear picture of your company's current financial position and its future potential.
In particular, a company auditor will provide official certification that your annual financial statements are a faithful reflection of the figures for your company, as well as its results for the financial year. An audit also gives you a firm base for your business plans or, looked at another way, a clear picture of the financial health of your future business partners.
What the Vandelanotte company audit practice can mean for youAt Vandelanotte, we have eight accredited company auditors standing by to conduct this type of audit for you. And with us, you will always be able to count on having a permanent contact person. This makes communication easier and also ensures that your sensitive company information is dealt with in total confidence.
What's more, your company auditor will not just check your figures, but also give you strategic advice for making well-grounded choices and optimising your financial situation. With more than 20 years of auditing experience, we are also able to benchmark your company accurately, allowing you to compare your figures with similar companies in your sector.
We also make sure that any reporting required by law, such as in the event of restructuring, contributions in kind, mergers, splits or liquidations, is submitted accurately and on time to the relevant authorities, as it should. And if the auditor comes across any irregularities, we will then work with you to find an appropriate solution.
Smooth handling of statutory obligationsYou can also rely on the services of your Vandelanotte company auditor for statutory accounting inspections. For example to check the business and financial information to be issued to the company works council and for audits on pharmaceutical laboratories, hospitals and medical teaching institutions, etc. We also have the expertise and experience required to assess damage to stocks and loss of profit after a fire.
ERDF auditsVandelanotte Company Auditors is also an accredited auditor for the ERDF. We can attribute this accreditation by the European Regional Development Fund mainly to our extensive experience in the area of ERDF audits, as well as to our clear vision where, in addition to auditing pure figures, close attention is also paid to the content-related monitoring of projects.
Our task as an ERDF auditor will consist of certifying the expenditure of Flemish project partners (towns, universities, non-profit organisations, etc.) for the European Commission for programmes running from 2014 to 2020.
