Audits - Reviews - Compilations

Stockholders, creditors, and private investors often need assurance that financial statements accurately represent the true financial position of a company.
Your stockholders, creditors, or private investors have different levels of risk tolerance, so I provide three levels of assurance to meet your needs.

AUDIT - HIGHEST LEVEL OF ASSURANCE

An audit provides the highest level of assurance. An audit is a methodical review and objective examination of the financial statements, including the verification of specific information as determined by the auditor or as established by general practice.
My work includes a review of internal controls, testing of selected transactions, and communication with third parties. Based on my findings, I issue a report on whether the financial statements are fairly stated and free of material misstatements.

benefit

An Audit allows you to...

  • Your payroll checks prepared and printed on-time, every-time.
  • All of your payroll checks are laser printed on "blank" check stock to ensure maximum security and meet the micro encoding standards as set forth by the Federal Reserve System.
  • Worry Free IRS and State tax reporting as well as EFTPS tax deposits.
  • User friendly, and easy to understand monthly, quarterly, and annual payroll tax reports, including W-2, W-3 and 1099 forms.
  • Detailed reports on your employee's vacation, sick days, and personal days accruals.
  • Creation and filing of the required new hire reports.
  • Your payroll records maintained in tip top shape.
Audits Are Not Just for Public Entities:

All public companies are required to have an annual audit, but some nonpublic entities must undergo an annual audit as well. These include local governments, not-for-profit agencies and other organizations receiving government grants.
Moreover, some financial institutions require audits of nonpublic companies based on the financing amount and/or the bank's assessment of the company's risk. Also, companies with absentee ownership (such as those owned by investment firms, or individuals who no longer run the business) may order audits as checks of their management teams.

REVIEW - LIMITED ASSURANCE

Less extensive than an audit, but more involved than a compilation, a review engagement consists primarily of analytical procedures I apply to the financial statements, and various inquiries I make of your company's management team. If the financial statements or supporting information appear inconsistent or otherwise questionable, I may need to perform additional procedures.
A review doesn't require me to study and evaluate your company's internal controls or verify data with third parties or physically inspect assets. Rather, a review report expresses limited assurance in the form of the statement: "I am not aware of any material modifications" for the financial statements to be in conformity with the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Reviewed financial statements must include all required footnotes and other disclosures.

Why might a business request a review engagement? It can be a good middle ground, providing the advantages of a CPA's technical expertise without the work and expense of an audit.

benefit

COMPILATION - LOWEST LEVEL OF ASSURANCE

In compiling financial statements for a client, I present information that is the "representation of management" and expresses no opinion or assurance on the statements. Compilations don't require inquiries of management or analytical procedures. Instead, I rely on my knowledge of accounting principles and a general understanding of your business. Banks often require compilations from an independent CPA as part of their lending covenants.
Which Report Should You Use?
Each type of financial statement report may suit specific circumstances, depending on requirements from your client's bank or other parties, as well as meet budgetary needs. Understanding each report's unique strengths and weaknesses can help you choose the most appropriate one. Please call if you have questions about which type of report is right for you.

Payroll

When it comes to paying employees, laws and the IRS have made the payroll function a time consuming nightmare for the small business owner.
Small business owners spend an average of eight hours a month performing payroll functions. That's 12 full days a year that could be spent generating sales, prospecting new business opportunities, improving products or services, or servicing customers.

I offer payroll solutions that meet your business's needs and enable you to spend time doing what you do best--running your company.

How much do I charge?


In order to give you an accurate price for my payroll services I need to know a little more about your business and what services you're interested in. My prices are very affordable.

Non-Profit Organizations

I can help you set up and maintain your non-profit organization's tax-exempt status by handling all the IRS reporting for you.

Each year the IRS requires most tax-exempt organizations to submit the Form 990 and its relations, which includes the following items:

With very specific revenue and expense categories like donations, salaries, postage, rent...
With specific categories like cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable...
With all the expenses allocated to either program services, fundraising, or operations.
That reports all of the expenses for each program or service like seminar programs or educational mailings.
That detail the organization's sources of income in specific categories like charitable donations, membership fees, investment income.
benefit

The IRS uses these very specific revenue and expense classifications to determine if your organization will retain its tax-exempt status. So it's imperative that you build your accounting system around these revenue and expense classifications.

Small Business Accounting

As a small business owner you have more important things to do than to keep your own books. I take care of your books for you, so you can get back to the job of running your business and generating profits.

benefit

Each month or quarter I will do the following things for you...

Reconciling your business checking account each month allows me to keep your bank account, accounting, and taxes up-to-date.

Having me reconcile your account each month allows you to...
  • Identify lost checks, lost deposits and unauthorized wire transactions.
  • Detect and prevent excess/unjustified bank charges and ensure transactions are posted correctly by your bank.
  • Detect and prevent embezzlement of funds from within your company.
  • Know how your business is doing? You can't really know unless all accounts are reconciled and properly accounted for on your financial statement.
  • Manage your cash more effectively. Proper management of funds not only saves money, it makes money for you.
  • Protect yourself. By timely reconciling and promptly objecting to your bank about any unauthorized, fraudulent or forged checks presented to your bank and paid by that bank, you can relieve your agency of responsibility for the shortfall and transfer the risk to the bank. This reason to reconcile alone should be enough. Crime exists.
  • Sleep Better. You will sleep more peacefully at night knowing your bank accounts are reconciled, in balance and that all escrow funds, accounts, checks and disbursed funds are properly accounted for.
An income statement, otherwise known as a profit and loss statement, basically adds an itemized list of all your revenues and subtracts an itemized list of all your expenses to come up with a profit or loss for the period.

An income statement allows you to...
  • Track revenues and expenses so that you can determine the operating performance of your business..
  • Determine what areas of your business are over-budget or under-budget.
  • Identify specific items that are causing unexpected expenditures. Like phone, fax, mail, or supply expenses.
  • Track dramatic increases in product returns or cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales.
  • Determine your income tax liability.
A balance sheet gives you a snapshot of your business' financial condition at a specific moment in time.
A balance sheet helps you:
  • Quickly get a handle on the financial strength and capabilities of your business
  • Identify and analyze trends, particularly in the area of receivables and payables. For example, if your receivables cycle is lengthening, maybe you can collect your receivables more aggressively.
  • Determine if your business is in a position to expand.
  • Determine if your business can easily handle the normal financial ebbs and flows of revenues and expenses.
  • Determine if you need to take immediate steps to bolster cash reserves.
  • Determine if your business has been slowing down payables to forestall an inevitable cash shortage

Balance sheets, along with income statements, are the most basic elements in providing financial reporting to potential lenders such as banks, investors, and vendors who are considering how much credit to grant you.

The general ledger is the core of your company's financial records. These records constitute the central "books" of your system. Since every transaction flows through the general ledger, a problem with your general ledger throws off all your books.

Having me review your general ledger system each month allows me to hunt down any discrepancies such as double billings or any unrecorded payments. Then I will fix the discrepancies so your books are always accurate and kept in tip top shape.
I am always available to spend time with you so you fully understand how to interpret and utilize the financial information I provide. Consultations with me are already included in the price, so please feel free to call me whenever you have a question or concern.
These tasks form the solid foundation of your small business accounting system. You can customize the package of services you receive by adding payroll, tax planning, tax preparation, or any of my other services.
