A powerful internal audit must actually afford all medium-sized companies from a certain size. For capital market-oriented companies, the German Accounting Law Modernization Act (BilMoG) requires management boards and supervisory boards to set up such an independent internal audit. In addition, the critical view of internal auditing helps to uncover weaknesses and optimize processes.

Outsourcing the internal audit to an external service provider – what advantages does such a solution offer?
One of the key requirements for internal audit staff is their independence. They examine on behalf of the management, who then reports the results to the Supervisory Board. This means that internal auditing must therefore be above all company-internal political and strategic considerations.
The establishment of an independent audit also means that these employees must not be entrusted with any tasks that are not related to auditing. Such an exemption of employees often fails in practice because of the necessary full utilization of the employees and / or the available resources.
Can an external service provider go as far as the in-house internal audit?
In many cases, the company chooses a mix of its own internal audit and external specialists. We also call this kind of cooperation with our clients co-sourcing. Special audit procedures can then be outsourced cost-effectively to external specialists. The internal audit can then concentrate fully on the basic tasks. Specialized knowledge, which is not needed every year, can then be purposefully “bought in” from the outside. If you then set the costs for co-sourcing models or even for special orders in relation to the structure of your own audit capacity, it is worth outsourcing the internal audit in most cases.

Business Judgment Rule and Internal Audit activity
For senior management to act in an entrepreneurial decision for the benefit of society, it is essential that senior management can rely on reliable information. In doing so, Internal Audit takes over the important information as a quality assurance provider and as an information provider. A sensitive special case arises when the internal audit determines that the management body in principle under-informed or unaudited information used as a basis for decision. Here, Internal Audit supports the management in the implementation and compliance with the requirements arising from the Business Judgment Rule.
