Assurance Engagement – Audit, Review, Compilation

Audits are our most in depth and thorough financial investigations which provide the highest degree of assurance. The goal of an audit is for our auditors to offer an opinion about the fairness of your business’s financial statements. We will study your company’s records, assets, documents, and make inquiries about your company’s financial dealings both within and outside of the company. After gathering sufficient evidence, and if our auditors have found no evidence of misstatements, we will offer professional assurance that your company’s financial documents are correct and in order.

Reviews are a less rigorous investigation than audits. We study your financial records and conduct inquiries to ensure that your records are conforming to appropriate guidelines, but do not conduct any in depth investigation into the accuracy of the financial statements. A review does not allow us to offer as much assurance as a full audit does, but this may be enough for clients in many situations.

Compilations are the most basic level of accounting service we offer. We simply help you compile and sort your financial information to prepare financial statements, without offering any assurance about the accuracy or fairness of the statements. Compilations are frequently prepared for internal use by a company’s management or for income tax purposes.
