In accordance with the Articles of Association, a registered auditing firm shall be elected as auditor. KPMG was re-elected as the Company’s auditor at the Annual General Meeting on 7 May 2020 for the period until the 2021 Annual General Meeting.
The auditor in charge is Håkan Olsson, aided by Jonas Eriksson. KPMG audits AddLife AB and the majority of its subsidiaries.
The Company’s auditors follow an audit plan that includes integrating comments from the Board, and reporting their findings to Company management teams, Group Management and to AddLife’s Board of Directors, both during the audit and in connection with the approval of the annual accounts. The Company’s auditors also attend the Annual General Meeting, describing and commenting on the audit process.
The independence of the external auditors is regulated by special instructions approved by the Board of Directors, which show the areas for which the external auditors may be engaged on matters beyond the regular audit process. KPMG regularly assesses its independence in relation to the Company and delivers annual written statements to the Board of Directors that the audit firm is independent of AddLife. During the current financial year, KPMG has performed advisory assignments concerning corporate acquisitions. The total fee for KPMG's services in addition to auditing for the 2020 financial year was SEK 1.0 million (0.1).
