Message from the Chairman

Toward the creation of new “Audit Value”
~ Auditing in depth and new value creation 〜

The progress of digital innovation has brought about major changes and evolutions in the basic structure of industry, the way people work, and their daily lives.

However, with the prolonged spread of COVID-19, the collapse of the existing international order due to the outbreak of the Ukraine crisis, and the instability of natural resources and food supplies, the world now faces unprecedented chaos and uncertainty not seen in recent years.

In the current days, excessive information including fake news or propaganda is crossing the digital space. In these times, I believe that the role of audit as a social infrastructure to identify and guarantee reliable financial information is gaining more and more importance.

As for the recent movement regarding the audit system, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) has announced new audit quality management standards consisting of ISQM1, ISQM2 and ISA220 and the preparation for its introduction is now underway in Japan.

As a member of the international network of Kreston Global, Yaesu Audit & Co. has also started ISQM project team and it has been conducting repeated discussions and examinations since June 2021. Finally, the new quality management manual have been introduced on Dec 2022. We will continue our steady efforts to establish the auditing system that is further trusted by society.

Now, even in the near-future society, where advanced digitization and AI are accelerating, we believe that the universal value of an organization lies in its "People" and good teamwork.

Yaesu Audit & Co. emphasizes the humanity, expertise and diversity of each partner and staff member, incorporating a global perspective, and works as one to develop a solid and open organization and create new “Audit Value.”
