Audit & Assurance
Audit adds credibility to financial information and gives you the added value of experienced observations and advice. We view the audit process as a vehicle for continuous improvement.
A quality audit reveals useful information that can help in the future. Our methodology blends our technical competencies with a detailed knowledge of the client, its markets and industry sector. We meet with our clients regularly and know the industry in which they operate. We can serve as advisers, identifying problems and opportunities and recommending ways to respond.
Our audit approach is determined by the assessment of the client systems and controls and our assessment of risk. It is our general approach to seek to place reliance on management controls for all high risk material account balances. It is our policy to understand the controls operating on all high risk balances or assertions and identify issues to report to management.
Our services include:
An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. It also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statements presentation.
A review is limited primarily to inquiries of company personnel and analytical procedures applied to financial data and thus provides less assurance than an audit.
A compilation engagement would ordinarily include the preparation of financial statements (which may or may not be a complete set of financial statements) but may also include the collection, classification and summarization of other financial information.
