I am not so sure we should use word "independent" in our answer because it is not mentioned in the source text. I stumbled a little over the word "numbers" too. Otherwise, towns313's answer seems fine to me.

The company's accounting system was properly or correctly established using the figures or account balances from the previous year's balance sheet as audited by Coopers & Lybrand GmbH, Kassel, certified public accountants (US) or chartered accountants (GB).

The company's books were properly or correctly opened using the figures or account balances from the previous year's balance sheet as audited by Coopers & Lybrand GmbH, Kassel, certified public accountants (US) or chartered accountants (GB).
