Tax audits are an important instrument used by tax authorities to carry out their fiscal control obligations. It is usually impossible to predict when a company will be audited. However, business owners often realize that the tax authorities are intending to carry out an audit if the current tax assessment notices are described as being subject to review.
Special audits are carried out at short notice if there is a specific need for an audit (e.g. the VAT inspection of certain transactions and VAT inspection). This also includes the external audit of employee income tax.
Large and group companies are virtually permanently inspected in accordance with statutory provisions. Company audits are less likely the smaller the company. However, this is not a generally valid assumption. Audits are often carried out in a company’s early years.
