Every country has its own principles of accounting and ‘being compliant’ is always a strong argument when going to market.
In Germany every accounting software needs to be compliant with the legal principles of adequate and orderly accounting of GoB (link in German language only). The compliancy has to be proven by a certification of an audit and accounting company, and for Exact Globe that has been done in the past for product update 304. Taking into consideration changes in software and legislation since that product update, it became more challenging to obtain acceptance for the existing certification. Therefore, we have decided to request an update for our certification based on the product update 400. In the beginning of February, our financial module in Exact Globe has been reviewed by PricewaterhouseCoopers and now we have signed versions of certification and audit report.
Although this had been a time consuming process, everything went smooth and fine and it’s a wonderful reassurance to see we are still meeting requirements in our software.
* Distribution of GoB certification for Exact Globe is done by PWC Germany directly. You can find contact details below in the comment section.
