Financial Statements & Record Keeping
For clients who need or require financial statements, we can prepare compiled, reviewed or audited financial statements. From those statements, we can assist in the analysis of the financial information and provide guidance in managing the business more effectively and profitably.
Financial Statements & Records Keeping
An audit includes a study and evaluation of internal control, which form a basis for applying various auditing procedures, and results in the issuance of an independent accountant’s opinion as to the fairness of presentation of a financial statement.
The accountant’s opinion discloses the scope of the examination, the fairness of presentation of a financial statement, whether or not the financial statement is presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and whether or not these principles have been consistently applied.
A compilation is limited to presentation in the form of financial statements, information that is the representation of management without audit, review or an accountant’s opinion. A compilation is usually prepared for businesses or individuals that do not desire any assurance on the financial statements.
A review consists principally of inquires of company personnel and application of analytical procedures to financial data. This enables the accountant to express an opinion with limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements in order for the statements to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.
A review may be accepted by regulators, creditors and bonding companies in lieu of an audit and usually has the advantage of being less costly.
We are able to provide our clients with advice and counsel on numerous subjects related to accounting. Since we are well acquainted with our clients and familiar with business management problems, we are able to help formulate constructive solutions.
