Audits, Reviews and Compilations
We provide financial reporting on all three levels of assurance. The audit is an examination by random testing that provides the highest level of assurance. The review consists of analytical procedures on financial information that provides limited assurance. The compilation is based upon client information and provides no assurance.
Bookkeeping - Monthly, Quarterly or Annually
Our staff can keep the bookkeeping up to date for any size company. We can prepare financial statements, or just simply compile the information for preparing income tax returns. A successful business needs a good management plan; you need to ask yourself "where am I? ", "where am I going?" and "how am I going to get there?". Monthly bookkeeping and reporting allows you to see where you are and to analyze if you need to change your operations to achieve your desired goals.
