Your added value with auditing from RLT

Our experience in advising mid-sized, family owned companies, coupled with our identity as entrepreneurs, makes us a partner you can work with as equals.

Ongoing collaboration and long-term advising relationships with the same professionals ensure we have a detailed understanding of your company and its constantly changing legal and business environment. This makes us a suitable sparring partner, and lets us help you implement business decisions sustainably in the long-term – even across generations. In doing so, we look for solutions that are pragmatic for you, and take a holistic approach.

You receive an independent assessment of the situation from us, with the courage to address even difficult topics.

We stand for reliability and trust

Around a third of our employees are qualified as tax advisors and/or certified accountants. This is above average for our industry. We have a broad range of expertise, allowing us to develop answers for questions regardless of their complexity.

Our name stands for quality. Our clients know this, as do credit institutions in our region. Our high quality standard has been confirmed multiple times through external audits by independent corporate auditing firms.

We use modern auditing techniques

We handle our audits using modern audit approaches and highly developed auditing software. That gives us the audit reliability we need, and ensures that we only take up as much of your and your employees’ time as necessary with actual audit-related topics. Personal exchange between you and our partners and employees always form the foundation of our work.

We also use data analysis processes used by the tax authorities for our audit. This allows us to focus our audit on what is truly important, and work efficiently without unnecessarily taking up your resources.

We speak international

Not only major group enterprises, but mid-sized companies too, can work on a multinational basis. We deliver custom-tailored solutions to them via the CPAAI recommendation association. We have proven, resilient relationships with many local colleagues based on practical collaboration, our work on various boards and our participation in international events by the CPAAI recommendation association. This allows us to ensure ourselves and you a high level of professional expertise and collaboration when integrating partners, including on an international level.

And you receive all of the services you need from a single source

Family-owned mid-sized businesses, in particular, require a holistic approach, not isolated assessment of individual issues, such as audits. A holistic viewpoint is a foundation of our self-understanding That means you can rest assured that you will receive custom-tailored solutions from us across the entire spectrum of services we offer, on both national and international levels. We want to help guide our clients on the path to success.
