Exponens Audit


In France, a large number of entities are required by law to appoint a statutory auditor. Your statutory auditor can also perform services for you which are not stipulated by law. Such requests are dictated by the economic environment, and all engagements must be conducted in accordance with our Code of Conduct. As an independent expert, Exponens can accompany you in the performance of contractual audits.
