5BAR Assurance was founded in 2012 by Kees-Jan Nielen and Gert van de Laar. Both learned their profession at one of the Big Four audit firms in the Netherlands and through working within the complex environment of multinational and listed enterprises.
With a growing belief in the power of entrepreneurship and a personalised approach, Kees-Jan and Gert decided to take the plunge and start their own audit firm.
“We always dive deeper, while pushing the limits of our abilities.”
Due to the constant and rapid changes of circumstances and regulations within our profession, we too must adapt as pragmatically as possible to the current and expected market demands and requirements, which we do in our own way. We are there where our clients can use us best, now and in the future.
Our team offers a personal dedication and approach not easily found in this industry. At the same time, our expertise and professional excellence equal what you would expect from a reputable firm. A unique combination that enables us to raise the bar and set a new standard of excellence within our industry – the ‘5BAR Quality Standard’ that our clients can rely on with confidence.
We are keen to share our knowledge and experience with you. We achieve this by offering you a glimpse of our own working practices and by regularly updating you on current developments and much-needed know-how in financial accounting.
