Accounting & Auditing

Virtually all entities - whether they are privately held, publicly owned, governmental, or nonprofit - must prepare reports on their financial performance . These reports help owners and management make operating decisions, enable creditors to evaluate loan applications, and assist individuals in making investment decisions. To serve our clients' varying needs, our firm offers several kinds of financial statement services .

When limited in - house capabilities for preparing financial statements exist, our firm can prepare a compilation report based on information provided by management.

If your business is a private entity, we can perform a review of your financial statements and issue a report that provides limited assurance that material changes to its financial statements are not necessary . In this case, we would apply analytical procedures to your financial statements to identify unusual items or trends in the financial statements that may need explanation.

If your business is a public or private company or governmental agency, you may engage our firm to audit your financial statements and issue a report that provides the highest level of assurance that your statements are presented fairly and in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles . Audits also provide a reasonable level of assurance that the financial statements are free of material errors.
