From an audit perspective, assuming that your consolidated financial statements indicate assets, turnover and employees above the threshold, you must have a compulsory audit in the Netherlands. As a group auditor, your auditor must be able to instruct, and even be present, the component auditor for the various entities, also in your country of origin. This makes the tasks of a group auditor (regulated by ISA 600 and in the Netherlands NV COS 600) important and responsible.

Being a group auditor is a speciality. To understand the impact and complications of such role requires a thorough understanding of the Dutch and international regulations, as well as the specific requirements in the country of origin. We work closely together with your auditors in the country of origin to achieve efficiency, while our Dutch auditors will be highly involved in the whole audit process.
Based on the regulations of the AFM, the regulator must have access to the audit files, also in the country of origin. This requires a communication between the group auditor and the component auditor which will secure that access.

Special Purpose Vehicles

For specific international project, cooperation or investments, for example in infrastructure or construction, Special Purpose Vehicles are being set up in the Netherlands, while the actual investment and asset is elsewhere. This might lead to the fact the Dutch SPV must have an auditor and is required to have an auditor’s opinion.

Otherwise, stakeholders, such as investors or financiers might require an audit to provide assurance that their investment is secure.
These kind of audits are highly specialised and require specific attention.
