Audits, Reviews, and Compilation
Bee, Bergvall & Co.’s financial statement services comprise all three levels of financial services depending on your company’s needs.
Audits offer the highest level of assurance to third parties, and include in-depth examination and confirmation of account balances, inventories, and selected transactions. Audits provide creditors, investors, and other outside parties with a high level of comfort on the accuracy of the financial statements.
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. Reviews are intended to provide lenders and other outside parties with a basic level of assurance on the accuracy of financial statements..
Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes, or in some cases for use by lenders and other outside parties, and are based upon information provided by a company’s management. They do not offer assurance but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.
