Financial Audits

With our team of experienced Certified Public Accountants (CPA), we are able to offer the following financial auditing services for foreign owned entities in Japan, while minimizing any stress to you:

1. Financial audits using international and U.S. standards

OC & Associates can provide audits based on International Standards on Auditing (ISA) and US Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS) for your Japanese subsidiary. We are registered with Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) in the United States which allows us to perform audits of U.S. subsidiaries.
The financial statements we audit can be either prepared under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) or U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (USGAAP).
We are fully independent from all international auditing firms but have experience working with many of them.

2. Special reports, monitoring & internal controls

OC & Associates is organized to produce commentary reports, such as special studies on the internal control systems, FIN48, and accounts receivable.
This gives you the comfort that your company assets are in order and can be monitored at all times and you can concentrate your attention on your business plan in Japan.

3. Compliance Audits

OC & Associates provides specialized auditing whose purpose is to examine compliance with contracts and agreements (e.g. royalty audits).
This allows you to identify any discrepancies immediately at the point where swift correction is the easiest.

4. Other related tasks under financial auditing

OC & Associates can review your financial activities and advise where audit procedures would be beneficial and suggest a workable interval for such tasks or, if a onetime occurrence, provide you with a plan on the project.
We take pride in performing agreed upon auditing procedures with accuracy and professionalism. The end result is a high comfort level that the financial transactions being recorded are reliable, creating a solid foundation for all your business activities.
