Accounting & Assurance
We go beyond the traditional accounting services to provide you with the complete advisory services you need to optimize your business decisions. As part of your team, we can assist with professional and practical advice which allows you the peace of mind in knowing that while you are busy running your business, you have professionals along side who will assist you in making informed management decisions.
We have experience in working with start up operations to large going concerns. If you are just starting out we can assist with the implementation of accounting information systems and teach you how to use the information in the operation of your business. It’s not enough for us to understand your systems and financial systems …. it is our job to make sure you do.
Traditional accounting services include the preparation and reporting on financial statements and the preparation of income tax returns. These include the audit or review of your financial statements, which are known as assurance services, and also the compilation of data into financial reports.
Audits are utilized where you need assurance provided to third parties. We plan and execute our audit services based on the specific needs of your organization. Our audits also include our recommendations about your business systems, where controls and efficiencies can be improved. An audit report states our findings and opinion whether the financial statements are fair in their content and their principles of presentation. We will also attend at your AGM to answer any questions posed by shareholders on our audit.
There are business situations where an audit is not required but where users of the financial statements still require a level of added credibility. In these situations a review of your financial statements is required. A review is a less detailed assurance engagement that enables us to report with limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to your financial statements.
Compilation of financial statements is provided where no added level of assurance is required. A compiled financial statement may be all you need and it is an extension of the basic accounting and bookkeeping services we offer. Your data is compiled into a financial statement format which could be on a monthly quarterly or annual basis. A compilation presents you with financial statements for information purposes without expressing assurance as to their accuracy. Our services will change and adapt to suit the growth and changes in your business. We are entrepreneurs as well and will develop a service plan suited to your needs, whether you’re starting out or are well established.
