Our audit approached is governed by policies that ensure compliance with the International Standards on Auditing, International Standards on Quality Control and the IFAC Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants.
One of the key elements that contribute to the high quality of services that we offer is the development of innovative technology and software programs. We believe that superior technology creates efficient service and lower fees. We have incorporated innovative computer applications into our audit procedures (Voyager, TBeam, IDEA, Pentana) that can be tailored to the specific needs and characteristics of each organization. More specifically, our services relate to:
- Statutory audit of annual financial statements (IFRS, Greek GAAP, US GAAP)
- Audit of consolidated financial statements
- Audit of interim financial statements
- ATHEX listing financial audit
Our audit methodology and our software are constantly evaluated to ensure adherence to International Standards on Auditing, whilst updated versions are released on an annual basis.
In addition to our own quality control procedures and in line with GTIL, every member firm is subject to Audit Review at regular intervals –following the relative selection– conducted by GTIL. This review is a systematic check of the quality of member firms’ audit procedures carried out at least once every three years by independent and suitably qualified partners and managers from other member firms under the overall direction of GTIL.
