Financial Statement Audits

An audit is an intensive review of an organization’s accounting and financial records that yields an opinion on all financial statements.

Why Performed: Most often, an audit is performed because third parties (such as banks, creditors, outside investors or government) require an auditor’s opinion on financial statements. For instance, the Small Business Administration requires participants in the 8(a) program to provide audited annual financial statements from a licensed independent public accountant for those concerns with actual receipts of more than $10,000,000 or more.

Standards Met: An audit is conducted in accordance with Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS) and includes tests of accounting records and other procedures considered necessary to express such an opinion.

Work Process: An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. This evidence is obtained through inquiry, physical inspection, observation, third party confirmation, examination, analytical procedures and other steps. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. Our audit includes obtaining an understanding of the entity and its environment, including internal control. Our efforts during the audit process and related services often help us to identify and address issues related to:

  • Internal Controls
  • Business processes and inefficiencies
  • Areas for cash flow improvement
