Financial reporting and accounting
Very few cases concerning financial reporting and accounting requirements are actually taken to the Enterprise Chamber nowadays, although that route is still sometimes chosen. Nevertheless, we are frequently involved in court cases in the domain of financial reporting. Cases brought against company officers, accountants and tax consultants often revolve around reporting and accounting.
We support company officers who are alleged to have produced misleading interim figures or annual reports. We support accountants who have compiled financial statements or issued audit opinions about them. We support tax consultants who have been involved in the compilation of financial information or who have given advice about such information.
The scope of our work also extends to internal reporting, the timeliness and accuracy of such reports, and the design and functioning of the administrative systems and internal control mechanisms.
