Accounting Software Selection
With the growing number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. As accounting professionals, we are exposed to most programs through trade journals and actual use. Our experienced staff can help you choose and implement the system that best fits your needs.
Agreed-Upon Procedures Engagements
When you need an accountant’s report on financial data or schedules that don’t necessarily fit the standard definition of financial statements, an agreed-upon procedures engagement may be appropriate. Our team will meet with you to define the scope of a project to fit your particular needs.
Audits, Reviews & Compilations
We provide financial reporting on all three levels of assurance:
• Audit - an intensive examination with the highest level of assurance
• Review - some analytical procedures conducted with limited assurance
• Compilation - based upon client information provided and used primarily for internal use.
Meaningful, well-organized financial records ensure that your business operations will run more efficiently on a daily basis and are the foundation of a successful business. Our qualified staff can assist you with the day-to-day tasks associated with bookkeeping.
Cash Flow & Budgeting Analysis
A business can be profitable and still run into trouble due to cash flow issues. We can forecast and evaluate your company's financial condition, estimate financing requirements, and track cash-flow sources and uses.
Financial Forecasts and Projections
Forecasting is a necessity when trying to effectively manage and lead a business to profitability. From simple projections to complex financial modeling, our experienced staff can assist you in achieving your company's financial goals.
Forensic accounting is the process of performing interviews of company personnel and searching through company records to identify instances of fraud or theft. The process is similar to an audit, except that unlike an audit, the procedures performed are designed with the specific intent to detect fraud. Forensic accounting engagements are different from fraud examination engagements, but they are related.
Fraud examinations are typically conducted after an instance of fraud is discovered by management or as a result of a forensic investigation. Forensic examinations are focused on gathering evidence to prove or disprove suspected occurrences of fraud. Fraud examinations and forensic accounting engagements are different, but they are related.
Internal Control Assessments
An effective system of internal control is a key driver of business performance and one of the best protections against business failure. Internal control is an integral part of an organization’s risk management process, and when actively monitored by those charged with corporate governance, can enhance an organizations ability to leverage opportunities and counter threats to achieving the organization’s objectives. Using our knowledge of internal control systems, we can help your organization evaluate the design and effectiveness of your internal controls and assist in the implementation of improvements that can position your company to better manage risk and enhance operating efficiency.
Whether you are contemplating the addition of new computer hardware or overhauling your network, our experienced staff can assist you with many of the difficult decisions that must be made when designing your business' computer systems.
Management Advisory Services
Even the most qualified managers can benefit from competent, objective feedback. We can help your company's management team develop long-term objectives and specific strategies to facilitate your business' future growth and success.
Finding the right business partner for your company can be a difficult task. We can assist you in the merger or acquisition process by assessing such critical elements as tax considerations, product/service compatibility, competitive tactics and position, financial impact and cash flow considerations.
As a business grows, it must hire more employees, which can result in increased payroll administration. We can assist you in implementing the controls necessary to ensure a reliable, efficient, and effective payroll system. Our firm can also help you develop a payroll system and prepare all necessary payroll tax returns in a timely manner.
