letter of representation


Explanation:
Acc. to both Der Große Eichborn, and Woywode, Accounting and Tax Dictionary, this is a letter of representation (Eichborn lists "Vorstand für Prüfer" as specific context).
Woywode also lists "management letter of representation" (which would correspond to the explanation you give).
Eichborn also lists, specifically as US usage, "liability certificate".
