Tax revision

The tax review service is carried out by an audit team working under the supervision of a Sworn Financial Advisor.

This team effects verifications and examinations of the firm on a quarterly basis, prepares a working file, and produces a report containing its observations and recommendations. Our team will conduct four reviews throughout the year and divide work in order to prepare the certification report. Each report will be sent to the manager of the accounting department in addition to senior management. Each report is preceded by a description of conclusions, and if required a meeting is arranged with the participation of executives.  The matters contained in these reports, as well as recommendations and/or risks, are discussed.
