It is about more than transparency and security. Increasingly complex corporate processes and business fields as well as greater internationalisation, combined with higher and ever stricter statutory and professional standards, are making these needs even more urgent. This is continuously increasing the requirements on the auditing of (consolidated) financial statements as well as on risk management - we face up to this challenge.

To satisfy these requirements, we at Stümpges Brune GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft have specialised in auditing and audit-aligned consulting. Absolute reliability of financial reporting must be guaranteed at all times for all recipients; after all, this forms the basis for business decisions.

Our clients include mainly national as well as internationally operating SMEs and family companies as well as subsidiaries of international groups. Our local contact persons as well as the Auditors handling your assignment ensure short communication and decision-making procedures.

The focus of our auditing work is always on understanding your individual business processes as well as on the soundness of your reporting. Over and above the pure auditing function, we see ourselves as sparring partner and source of ideas for management and supervisory board - as confident of your company. A focal point of our work is the statutorily prescribed auditing of financial statements and special audits under commercial-law requirements and international standards. Our independent assessment strengthens the trust of employees, banks, business partners and the public in the company audited by us - your company. We are also pleased to advise you concerning the changeover of your reporting to IFRS or US GAAP, should you wish to consider this.

In addition to the audits prescribed by law, voluntary audits and external factual appraisals improve the prospects of success for your company. Our experienced staff will support you with independent and expert appraisals. They advise and assist you concerning internal audit matters within your company, and help with early detection of potential or existing corporate risks as well as structural weaknesses in your organisation. This enables you to take timely countermeasures.

It goes without saying that our firm of auditors has undergone the statutorily prescribed quality control procedure, and has received the corresponding certificate under Section 57a WPO (German Code for Public Auditors). As such we are licensed by the Chamber of Public Accountants (WPK) to conduct audits prescribed by law.

On an international level, we work with DFK International - a globally organised referral association of independent firms of auditors and consultants. This enables us to handle your cross-border assignments offering the highest quality levels.

We want you to regard the auditing of your financial statements as a service with ideas and structuring suggestions that contribute towards the success of your business.

Naturally, we adopt this approach not only during audits of (consolidated) financial statements,  but also during all special audits as well as consulting services.

Auditing with depth to ensure greater security and transparency.
