We plan and execute our audits in a way that maximizes audit efficiency and effectiveness and provides you the highest quality services.

Compilation and Review Services
Clients frequently need assistance preparing financial statements in connection with obtaining financing. Lenders frequently require the borrower to furnish financial statements but do not require the statements to be audited. We are able to provide financial statement compilation and review services to meet this need at substantial savings over the cost of a full financial statement audit. We are also able to provide monthly compiled financial statements for our bookkeeping clients. Contact us for an explanation of the differences between audit, compilation and review services.
