We can give you advice about how to configure your systems to make it easy to prepare regular interim reports. Sometimes external parties, such as banks or regulatory authorities, ask for an interim report to be accompanied by an auditor’s report. We will be glad to discuss your specific situation with you, and help you find the right solution for your needs.
Compilation of annual accounts
The purpose of annual accounts is to inform shareholders and other financial stakeholders about the financial performance of a business. If you give us an assignment to compile your annual accounts, you can be assured that your annual accounts will satisfy all the statutory requirements. Our compilation report will moreover confirm that the information presented in the annual accounts has been drawn up in the proper way. For the accountants and advisers of Verstegen, the compilation of the annual accounts is not the end, but just the beginning. The annual accounts will help us to give you practical tips and advice to help guarantee your financial security and your future business success.
Auditing and assessment of annual accounts
Most legal entities have a legal obligation to have their annual accounts audited by an accountant. Verstegen accountants and advisers has been licensed by the Financial Markets Authority (AFM) to carry out audits that meet all the statutory requirements. Even if a legal entity does not have a legal obligation to have an audit carried out, they can have the annual accounts audited voluntarily. Is also possible for an in-depth audit to be carried out which gives an even greater level of certainty about the accuracy of your annual accounts. We will be glad to help you choose the right type of audit to suit your specific needs.
Special accountant’s reports
Sometimes an external party can ask for a special report from your accountant. For example, if you want to take out cover for consequential losses with an insurance company or apply to join a sector association. Or if an organisation wants to hire you or your employees. Special accountant’s report can be requested and issued in all types of situations. Do you need a special accountant’s report? Then feel free to contact us now, and we will explain all the possibilities.

Then contact one of our IT auditors to discuss your specific situation. They will help you identify all the weaknesses in your system and come up with practical solutions to fix any problems you might have.
