OUR METHODOLOGY

We in Crowe believe that financial statements auditing is a value-add service to a company’s shareholders, management and overall stakeholders.

By leveraging our 60+ years of experience in assurance and audit services in Greece, we have developed and continuously implement not only a methodology relevant for Public Interest Entities (i.e. public companies, banking institutions and insurance companies) which is fully adapted to what IFRS dictate, but also to a methodology tailored to the audit needs of Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Our methodology rely on Crowe’s global methodology and fully comply with IFAC’s IFRS requirements. It spreads across three pillars:

  1. Understanding shareholders and management needs
  2. Consideration of related costs for entity to support the audit process
  3. Frequent and systematic communication with the management

We weigh carefully the size of each company during the planning and the implementation of each audit project. We leverage the expertise our assurance team has in the domestic financial, corporate and legal environment, while at the same time study carefully the nature and complexity of each company across all levels.

The planning process takes into account the financial statements audit needs, in combination with the tax certificate issuance needs. This way, duplication of audit processes is avoided, resulting in time and cost savings.

In Crowe, we continuously invest in tools and related methodology, aiming at constantly improving our assurance services. For this reason, we rely on dedicated expert teams and committees (i.e. Scientific Council, Technical Office, Tax Committee, Quality Control, Legal Department) targeting at unquestionably high quality services provision and performance maximization for our customers.
