Compilation, Review, and Audit
We can help:
Before you head off to see your creditor, bonding company, regulator, or anyone else that needs a report of your financial situation, you’ll want to make sure that your financial statements are properly prepared and free of error. Our financial statement services will help you properly present your company’s financial condition on paper.
Compilation: Compiled financial statements give you monthly, quarterly, or annual financial information to help you make informed decisions or monitor operations. After compiling the financial statements, the CPA reads them and considers whether they are appropriate in form and free from material errors. A compilation is often sufficient, but if a business needs to provide assurance that its financial statements are reliable, another level of service is warranted.
Review: The purpose of the review is to assure the end-user/entity that the financial statements presented are in conformity with the applicable financial reporting framework. This service provides limited assurance and is less extensive than the audit.
Audit: The audit is the most extensive of this group of services. Financial statement audits provide the end-user/entity with our auditor’s professional opinion of the financial reporting.
Agreed Upon Procedures: An agreed upon procedures engagement is a service in which our professionals design specific procedures tailored to your unique needs. This cost-effective option results in a report detailing each step performed and any deviations noted.
