International Audit

When your business activity crosses international borders, you need the full confidence of your stakeholders and investors, local regulators, and business partners. Our ability to deliver consistent, high-quality service across borders has made us a preferred audit partner of business leaders who want an engaged advisor on their side.

Today, we work with more than 500 international and multinational companies, conducting global and subsidiary audits under U.S. generally accepted auditing standards (GAAS), the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, and the International Standards on Auditing (IAS).

We're continually investing in our audit processes, people, and technologies to help our clients stay ahead of developing accounting principles and regulatory changes — bringing you practical guidance on how they impact your bottom line.

Our clients say

As the CFO from a European-headquartered company, I have been working with Plante Moran for many years now. My experience in a nutshell: highly professional partners to our business not only in the USA but also internationally. Practical and down-to-earth advice combined with broad expertise in our businesses (plastics and healthcare) — their advice is worth real money! Highly recommendable to any non-American-headquartered company!
