What is an Audit or Review?

An audit provides you, your company's executives, and potential investors with an exhaustive financial evaluation. An audit includes a systematic and complete analysis of your business's accounts, records, vouchers, and documents.

As independent auditors, we check for any discrepancies between accounts, review your internal controls, and accumulate suggestions for improvement. An audit may take more time to complete than a compilation or review, but the finalized statement's authority and breakdown of your company's financial position are worth the investment.

A review is less exhaustive than an audit but still provides limited assurance that your accounts comply with standard accounting principles. We perform analytical accounting procedures on your company's data to check that there are no obvious errors or misstatements.

We are committed to providing you fair, unbiased results. As an independent CPA firm you can trust that our conclusions align solely with your company's data and status.

Why Would I Want an Audit?

There are many reasons you may consider receiving an audit for your company, nonprofit, or government institution. Some nonprofit organizations are required by state or federal law to conduct an audit to maintain their nonprofit status. This obligation is typically tied to the size of the organization's finances or money source. We are happy to provide your nonprofit with an audit to give your leadership a sense of how your organization performs and help you protect your status.

Your company's executives or board of directors may request an audit to better grasp your internal controls and efficiency. We can break down our findings to provide your business's leadership with actionable insights that can immediately be used to optimize your operating procedures and structure.

Why Would I Want a Review?

Many banks use financial reviews to verify they are making safe investments and that your company is in good standing. For the same reason, potential shareholders or business partners may request a review as assurance that your company's financial statements are compliant with GAAP.

Reviews enhance confidence that your business or nonprofit is financially sound. They also help you understand exactly where your company stands financially, thus allowing you to take aim at your upcoming fiscal targets.

5 Ways an Audit from Our CPAs Can Benefit You

By taking advantage of our decades of accounting and industry experience, you can benefit from:

  1. A trustworthy examination: When a potential creditor, bank, or partner requests an audit of your institution, you will likely need an external audit. We are happy to review an existing assertion of your company's standing. If there is already an internal review of your company, we comb through your records, accounts, and documents to see if the data upholds your initial conclusion. Our statement provides unbiased confirmation of your internal audit.
  2. An accurate assessment of your business's efficiency: Audits are excellent at highlighting which areas of your business are performing at or below expectations. We review your income statements across several years to analyze your revenue and expense balances. Your completed audit can help your company's management decide which aspects of your business need reinforcement.
  3. Clearly identified areas of risk: We take the time to run an extensive review of your company's cash balance and reconciliation. By delving into your company's finances, we can spot instances of potential fraud, unprocessed checks, and incorrect payments. By examining your monthly bank reconciliations, we highlight risks to your company's financial standing that you can then address.
  4. Scrutiny of your internal controls: Your internal controls are implemented to create financial statements and safeguard assets from theft. We identify any potential flaws in your controls in our finalized report so that they can be promptly corrected.
  5. Confirmation that your statements follow accounting rules: Your financial statements must be prepared per a set of accounting rules. We confirm whether your statements align with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
