Assurance Services

There’s a reason why compilations, reviews or audits of your organization’s financial data are called assurance services. They assure you – and your bankers, business partners or possible merger partners – that your business reporting is financially accurate.

Assurance services are also a valuable business tool that can help you identify changes you need to make in your operations to assist your organization’s success. The financial data can provide the following:

Help owners and/or managers make operating decisions
Enable banks and creditors to evaluate credit applications
Provide individuals with information to make investment decisions
Provide constructive solutions for maximizing your organization’s profitability and efficiency

We provide the following assurance services for businesses, governments, and not-for-profit organizations.

Audit - an intensive examination with the highest level of assurance to third parties, and includes in-depth examination and confirmation of account balances and selected transactions.

Review - some analytical procedures conducted with limited assurance to outside interests and involve inquiries and analytical procedures that confirm financial statement matters and identifies any items requiring further analysis.

Compilation - based upon client information provided and used primarily for internal use.

Helping the Decision Making Process

We recommend the following for financial statements:

Comparison columns
- To show a general trend of how your organization is doing.
Percentage columns - To further explain trends.
Develop budgets - Your business should not be afraid to amend the budgets throughout the year for items that have changed from your plan. Budgets set the course for success.
Comparison to benchmarks - We can compare your financials to your US competitors, nationwide or regional.
