Auditing firm - Recognition

Description

The profession of auditor can also be practiced in a professional company. Such a company requires state recognition as an auditing company by the Chamber of Public Accountants. All European companies, companies under German law or companies under the law of another EU or EEA member state are permitted as legal forms. It should be noted that the majority of the legal representatives and shareholders must be auditors or auditors licensed in another EU or EEA member state.

Details of the recognition procedure can be found in the information sheets on the website of the Chamber of Public Accountants.

You will need the following documents:

  • A copy or a publicly certified copy of the articles of association or partnership agreement.
  • Proof of adequate professional indemnity insurance (provisional cover note from the professional indemnity insurer).
  • Proof of payment of the minimum capital. In the case of a cash foundation, proof of payment of the minimum capital must be provided by submitting an original bank confirmation; this will be returned on request.
  • A declaration by each partner that they do not hold the shares in the auditing company for the account of a third party.
  • Employment contracts of the partners working in the company (sworn auditors, tax consultants, lawyers, tax agents, etc.) who are not legal representatives.
    Auditors and EU auditors are not required to submit an employment contract.

Certificates from foreign professional organizations regarding the approval or recognition of EU statutory auditors and EU audit firms.

The processing time depends on the duration of the entry procedure in the commercial or partnership register. It is recommended to allow a total of two months.

Forms for download can be found on the website of the Chamber of Public Accountants.

Before you submit the application for recognition as an auditing company, it is recommended that you submit the draft articles of association to the Chamber of Public Accountants for review. Any necessary notarization can then be carried out. You then submit the application for recognition to the Chamber of Public Accountants and enclose the necessary evidence. You can use the form available on the website of the Chamber of Public Accountants for the application. As soon as the Chamber of Public Accountants has determined that all recognition requirements have been met, it will issue a certificate of non-objection. After entry in the commercial or partnership register, the Chamber of Public Accountants recognizes the company as an auditing company by issuing a certificate of recognition.
