Audit & Attestation Services We Offer
A full financial statement audit isn’t always required to provide factual reporting without opinions, conclusions or assurances for a specific issue or purpose. In those cases, an AUP will provide you with more flexibility for issues such as effectiveness of a specific internal control, fraud investigations, status of your regulatory reporting and much more.

An audit of your financial statements is intended to meet compliance requirements and to provide creditors, investors, federal and state agencies and other outside parties with a high level of comfort about the accuracy of your statements. This service includes a formal audit report that expresses a conclusion as to the accuracy of the financial statements.
An audit isn’t intended to uncover fraud or embezzlement, but it may identify material weaknesses and other control deficiencies and set the stage for discussions, insights, observations and guidance for their resolution.
As auditors, we aim to partner with our clients year-round by:
- Answering questions and providing guidance throughout the year
- Streamlining the process with resources and checklists to help you prepare and reduce the time your team needs to devote to an annual audit

Reviews consist of examining financial statements to determine whether they are consistent with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). A review provides lenders and other outside parties with a basic level of assurance about the accuracy of financial statements.
Sometimes lenders and other outside parties don’t require a full audit, but they need a compilation report. You’d typically need a compilation report when you’re requesting a relatively low amount of financing or credit or when you have a significant amount of collateral in place.

If you have more than 100 employees, you may be required by the Department of Labor (DOL) to engage a credentialed, independent CPA firm to perform an audit of your employee benefit plan. The ERISA audit determines if the plan follows all regulations and standards and if the plan trustees are meeting their fiduciary responsibilities.
Benefit plan audits are an opportunity to discover weaknesses in internal controls and position you as an effective steward of the plan’s financial resources by identifying opportunities to streamline plan benefits, features and operations.
