51. Auditing Fees

In both the reporting year and the previous year, fees for auditing the financial statements primarily consisted of the fees for the audit of the Consolidated Financial Statements, the audits of the financial statements of HHLA AG and its domestic subsidiaries, and the review of the interim financial statements. They also cover the project-related reviews relating to the introduction of IFRS 15 and 16. The other certification services include both audits under the German Renewable Energies Act and the German Combined Heat and Power Generation Act, as well as audits relating to EU subsidies. PricewaterhouseCoopers GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft was appointed as the auditor for the 2017 financial year, as in the previous year.
