Compilation and Review of Financial Statements

Our financial statement services comprise two levels of assurance depending on your company’s needs.

Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes and are based upon information provided by a company’s management. They do not offer assurance but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.  Reviews provide limited assurance to outside interests and involve inquiries and analytical procedures that confirm financial statement matters and identify any items requiring further analysis. We perform reviews to ensure the integrity of your data. A review is considerably more involved than a compilation.
