Services We Offer

Audit and Assurance

Assurance services aim to provide an independent and objective assessment of financial statements or compliance efforts. Audit is the highest level of assurance service a CPA performs and is intended to provide comfort to users on the accuracy of financial statements.

In addition to audits, we provide many other assurance and non-assurance services, which include examinations, reviews, compilations, preparation, and agreed-upon procedures engagements. Examinations are audit-level engagements designed to provide a high level of assurance on information other than financial statements, such as controls or other business matters. Reviews provide limited assurance on financial statements or other subject matter and are substantially less in scope than an audit or examination.

The non-assurance services we offer primarily include compilations, preparation services, and agreed-upon procedures engagements. Compilations and preparations services are financial statement-based engagements. In a compilation engagement, we assist clients in the presentation of financial statements, and provide a compilation report. A preparation engagement is one in which we prepare financial statements for a client, but do not issue a report on the services. Agreed-upon procedures are generally performed on non-financial statement matters, such as internal audit services or compliance issues. In an agreed-upon procedures engagement, we issue a report of findings based on procedures performed.

We provide these services to a myriad of industries such as financial institutions, oil and gas, timber, automobile, manufacturing, and many others including nonprofit organizations. We also provide employee benefit plan audits (ERISA) in conjunction with the Department of Labor. Our goal is to provide you with quality services tailored to your needs, while providing useful guidance
that will improve operational efficiency and result in a long-lasting relationship built on trust and performance.

To continue to provide top level services to our clientele, we are committed to staying current on significant changes in the accounting and auditing field, as well as relevant industry changes affecting you. On a regular basis, we attend various conferences, seminars, and educational training courses.

Benefits of outsourcing payroll include quick turnaround, electronic reporting, direct deposit, as well as ensuring privacy of sensitive compensation information.

Outsourced Controllership and Bookkeeping

Many of our clients find significant cost savings working with our firm to provide in-house accounting services. By utilizing our skilled professionals, businesses are able to free up necessary hours to focus on other relevant aspects of their business. In addition, our consistent and experienced staffing remove the worry and time associated with hiring and turnover many small businesses encounter.

In most cases, we can provide these services either in our office, or at your location.
