Our Auditing Branch is there to meet your every need in terms of a statutory audit, a contractual audit and even in terms of an internal audit or risk management.
A financial audit is the guarantee of a reliable and relevant corpus of financial information. Companies subjected to a mandatory control might be made liable to it either due to their company status or their size.
The following types of companies are obliged to have their accounts certified:
- The SAs [‘SociétésAnonymes’ (‘Joint Stock Companies’)] and SCA [‘SociétésenCommandite par Actions’( ‘French limited partnerships with share capital )
- The SAS [‘Sociétés par Actions Simplifiées’(‘Simplified Joint Stock Companies)] which control or are controlled by one or more companies, without threshold levels applying or where two or three of the following thresholds have been exceeded at the closing of the business year:
-Balance: 1 Million Euros
-Pre-tax turnover: 2 Million Euros
-Workforce: 20 employees.
- Other commercial business’s that meet two of the following criteria:
-3.1 Million Euros turnover pre-tax
-1.55 Million Euros total on the balance sheet.

In the context of a liberal economy, the strengthening of external controls becomes a veritable asset, all the more relevant for it being carried out by an independent profession that is able to elucidate matters to heads of business through advice and recommendations.

We can target and audit a company, validate the durability or the recovery of a company or group of companies, perform missions in auditing assets transfers and mergers, or any other mission where the basis of a reasoned and knowledgeable approach consists in identifying strengths and weaknesses and the ability to take a critical look at past or forecasted accounts.
