Argo and Associates, LLP's financial statement services comprise all three levels of assurance depending on your company's needs.
An audit provides users with an opinion on whether the financial statements are presented fairly in all material respects in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or another applicable financial reporting framework. This enhances the degree of confidence that users can place on an organization’s financial statements.
A review provides limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements in order for them to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles or another applicable financial reporting framework. A review includes primarily applying analytical procedures to your financial data and making inquiries of management. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit.
A compilation assists management in presenting financial information in the form of financial statements without undertaking to obtain or provide any assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements. The financial statements can be in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles or another applicable financial reporting framework.
An organization may have a reporting situation that does not involve a traditional financial statement audit, review or compilation. An organization may want to address specific areas of concern. We can work with you to focus on specific areas of your organization’s reporting needs. Agreed upon procedures involve performance of specific procedures to particular areas that you specify. We prepare a report that describes the procedures performed and the results of our procedures.
