“Behind the numbers are people. It’s ultimately someone’s life that you’re looking into.”

Rainer Ahrens

Director, Audit & Assurance

Rainer is a financial technician who sees past the numbers, systems and processes, to the people behind the business.

Priding himself on the relationships he builds, Rainer believes that “the more you get to know your clients, the better the service you can provide.”

To that end, he makes sure that he becomes their trusted advisor by “going through the seasons with them” and making good on what he promises to deliver.

An integral part of this, is added value. He goes over and above the requirements of compliance, process, and reporting to get “behind the mask” of the people and the business. Finding out about the unique underlying issues, challenges and opportunities, he seeks to provide long-term strategies for success.

With 19 years’ in the industry, Rainer specialises in working with private businesses and local subsidiaries of foreign corporations, including ASX listed companies, large foreign owned groups, and start-ups.

Performing due diligence, internal and external audits, control reviews, statutory compliance, consolidations, and feedback on control environments, including control assurance services.

Rainer works with clients looking for more than audit and assurance. For him, it’s about partnering with his clients to grow and strengthen their business and create the commercial future they aspire to.
