Financial Planning Services, Accounting and Auditing Services
Reporting on Financial Performance - Almost every organization, whether it is a privately held business, publicly owned corporation or a nonprofit organization, must prepare reports on its financial performance. These reports help managers and owners make operating decisions, enable creditors to evaluate loan applications and provide individuals with information to make decisions on investments.
Diverse Accounting Services for Diverse Needs - A CPA may provide a client with three distinct services that involve financial statements. Each service is designed to meet a different need. A Compilation is useful to small, privately held companies that need help in preparing their financial statements. A Review on the other hand, may be adequate for entities that must report their financial positions to third parties, such as creditors or regulatory agencies. Reviewed financial statements may also be useful to business owners who are not actively involved in managing their companies.
An Audit is the third and most extensive of the three services. An Audit is appropriate for businesses that offer a higher level of assurance to outside parties. An unmodified opinion from a CPA after an audit provides reasonable assurance to outside parties that the entity's financial statements fairly present its financial position and results of operation in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
