Other Financial Statement Engagements
While lesser in scope than an Audit, a Review is helpful to a private company. It provides limited assurance that material changes to the financial statements are not necessary, based on analysis of financial statement trends and ratios coupled with inquiries of management regarding accounting procedures and policies used to prepare the financial statements.
Compilation services are useful to small privately held companies that need help in preparing their financial statements. They do not provide any assurance on financial statements and are limited to presenting information in the form of financial statements.
Other Assurance Services
Our goal is to provide our clients with the appropriate level of service to meet their needs and to do that with excellence. We understand that there may be certain items of particular interest to our clients, and may suggest that we be engaged to perform certain agreed-upon procedures to the items of interest. These engagements allow for greater flexibility and can provide our clients with the exact information they may need. These services can be applied to a variety of circumstances including:
- Litigation Support
- Financial Analysis
- Reviews of Controls
- Compliance with legal and contractual obligations.
