In the financial statement audit practice which provides assurance to the financial reporting, it is very important to directly confirm the line items of financial statements of a company to its business partners. However, one of the common challenges in the practice is the work of sending, responding, and collecting paper-based confirmation letters requires administrative burden not only for the auditor, but also for the audited entity and the respondents such as its business partners or customers.​

Audit Confirmation Center GK was established as a joint venture of Big4 accounting firms (Deloitte, EY, KPMG, PwC) to solve this common issue.​
We aim to be a company that provides value to the society by becoming a foundation for transforming audit practice in Japan.​

Balance Gateway is designed to solve common issues related to confirmation procedures.​​
With its web-based confirmation platform, it provides an environment for rapid and reliable audit confirmation procedures that can be accessed from anywhere in the globe.​
