We view our role in the financial reporting process as an opportunity to provide constructive solutions for maximizing your company's profitability and efficiency. A compilation is limited to presenting in the form of financial statements information that is the representation of management. Since the financial statements have not been audited or reviewed, we do not express an opinion or other form of assurance on them.
A compilation is the most commonly used reporting format for small businesses. Although primarily designed for internal use by small businesses, most banks and other lenders will accept compilation reports to support their loans to those small businesses. The major advantage of a compilation over and audit or review is the significantly lower cost of a compilation compared to an audit or review.
We view our role in the financial reporting process as an opportunity to provide constructive solutions for maximizing your company's profitability and efficiency. A review consists principally of inquiries of company personnel and analytical procedures applied to financial data. It is substantially less in scope than an audit and, as a result, an opinion on the financial statements is not expressed. Instead, we indicate that we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the financial statements for them to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principals.
A review is most often requested by a bank to support a credit line or an insurance company for bonding purposes. The major advantage of a review over an audit is the significantly lower cost of a review compared to an audit.
