The audit of non-mandatory annual accounts is designed for companies that are under no obligation and want to be audited. It is done when the company wants to know its liquidation costs abroad, labor liabilities; administrative, legal, labor and business risks; limitations of its powers; if its insurances are right; if the company is up to date with obligations regarding the protection of its brands, data protection, as well as its shareholder diagram in the subsidiary-parent in order to receive tax and legal advice.
This kind of non-mandatory audit also serves to our clients in situations where there can be insecurity in financial statements of their different subsidiaries, i.e. for lack of confidence in the management of previous periods.
It is a very common audit made to the clients dissatisfied with their firm management. They trust us to carry out the management, conduct audits to heal accounting, taxation and labor aspects of the company and report its status to the parent.
Companies contract this kind of audit to know the compliance of labor laws of the countries where they operate.

- Calculation of income taxes and social security contributions, as well as local payroll tax
- Review of separation calculations and severance pay upon resignation

A Due Diligence is an information search process usually carried out by the purchaser to assess compliance, risks analysis and contingencies of the company that is object of trade and its economic and financial situation. It aims to obtain the accurate information to make the purchase of the company, which will vary according to the analysis made, both in its value and contract conditions.
In a tax audit, we verify the accounting records and documents. The objective of the audit is the examination of its tax situation to verify if accounting has carried out with accuracy and completeness.
The international companies with subsidiaries in México, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Chile and Portugal require this tax audit service in order to know the reality of their subsidiaries and parent.
The audit report for capital reduction and audit for capital increase must be signed by a ROAC auditor. It must be available for shareholders as prior step to the extension agreement.
The capital increase agreement cannot be taken without the auditor report and administrator report that will be part of the notarial deed, where the aforementioned capital increase with charge against reserves is contained.
A compliance audit is the analysis carried out by the companies to ensure the observance of rules, both internally and externally, in legal, accounting, tax and labor areas in the countries where they operate.
Companies are analyzed and then we will give them solution and follow-up.
