Audit & Attest

Audits

We deliver effective, efficient, independent and comprehensive risk based audits of financial statements. We first understand the business and the risks it faces and then focus our efforts where it matters most. Our method is both efficient and cost effective and meets the regulatory and business requirements under which they function.

Our clients benefit from our commitment to quality, which is demonstrated by our enrollment in peer review programs administered by the National Peer Review Committee and the Private Company Practice Section of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

The following services are also available:

Reviews

We review financial results by making inquiries of our client’s management and performing analytical procedures. Our review report expresses limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements in order for them to conform to generally accepted accounting principles.

Compilations

We compile financial statements from client information in accordance with professional standards. No opinion is expressed about the information.
