Audit, Review & Compilation Engagements
The level of service provided is determined by a client's need as required by creditors, investors or governmental standards. Compilations are the most basic level of service a CPA can provide with respect to reporting on financial statements. Audited financial statement services require us to comply with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. We are required to obtain corroborating evidence for the amounts and disclosures included in the financial statements. Falling somewhere in between the work required for a compilation and audit, falls the work required to issue a review report on financial statements. We take the time to understand a client's needs and often times discover a higher level of service is not required thus saving the client professional fees.
Consulting & Management Advisory Services
This is an area where our many years of experience with businesses of all types sets us apart from many other firms. We think outside the box looking at what clients have done right in the past and what they have done wrong and use those experiences to advise clients with regard to their current needs. Their need may be a current financial or tax need as well as need with their business operations. We provide advice and assistance on projects often times thought to be outside the realm of what we as CPA's provide. Potential needs of clients may include mergers, acquisitions and sales of their business, succession planning, lease versus buy evaluations of equipment, cost accounting, and much more.

Whether you are a W-2 employee, independent contractor, business owner of a corporation or partnership we prepare Federal and most state income tax returns.

Payroll & Sales Tax
Many clients outsource preparation of their quarterly and annual payroll tax returns to our firm. This includes the preparation of Forms 940, 941, W-2 and state unemployment returns. In addition we often prepare Form 1099 as well as monthly sales tax returns.
Many times we have been approached by clients believing they are in need of a review or audit with regard to their financial statements. After we inquired of the client what their need was in detail we discover that an agreed-upon procedures engagement is more appropriate and often less costly to them. An agreed-upon procedures engagement is where a client identifies certain procedures for us to follow with regard to financial information and we report our finding based upon following those procedures.
