Our experienced accounting and assurance team focuses on obtaining a thorough understanding of your business. The knowledge we gain from this process allows us to provide management with opportunities for improvements in accounting-related matters, internal controls, and daily operations. Our accounting and assurance team also works closely with our tax experts on tax-related issues and opportunities for tax savings. Our understanding of your business allows us to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of each service that we provide, keeping our costs competitive.
Audits of Businesses
Audits are often conducted to meet certain regulatory, banking, or other requirements. You may also request an audit in anticipation of a pending merger or acquisition. Our audit approach considers today’s competitive business environment and the risks you face on a daily basis. Our goal is to provide the maximum return on your investment in the audit process through in-depth analysis of your financial statements, internal controls, and overall business. We have access to certain proprietary software and various other resources that will assist our team in conducting a valuable, meaningful complete analysis of your business.
Internal Audit Services
With all of the corporate scandals we have recently experienced in the United States, shareholder and investor confidence may be at an all-time low. It is critical to ensure that your internal audit function is sound and will minimize the likelihood of collusion, fraud, asset misappropriation, and other improprieties occurring. Our in-depth knowledge of your business and industry will allow us to assist you in documenting or flow-charting financial and non-financial processes, implementing and testing controls, and monitoring the internal audit process.
Our firm is registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) guidelines require certain investment companies engage a PCAOB registered public accounting firm to conduct a “surprise examination”. Our designation as a registered PCAOB firm enables us to conduct these examinations.
Reviews and Compilations
Our services in this area range from monthly “management use only” financial statements with no disclosure to annual reviews of financial statements. Our in depth knowledge of SSARS (Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services) allows our team to produce a complete and accurate financial statement.
We can also provide agreed-upon procedures services and assist in the preparation of budgets, forecasts, and projections to assist with your business needs. These are often valuable services that can assist management in making critical business decisions.
