Financial Statements, including Attest and Audit Services
Our goal is to provide efficient and effective financial reporting solutions. The delivery of financial statements and reports by a CPA firm comes in several forms, from a rigorous full-audit to simple plain-paper financial information.
Some business need the assistance of a CPA firm to provide a “signed CPA letter” for financial reports going to banks, bonding companies, governments and regulators, or other third-party users. The Ahearn Jasco team can provide certified audits. If the highest level of assurance provided by an audit is not necessary, we also conduct reviews or compilations. The three basic levels of financial statements that include the signed CPA letter are:
- Audit- an intensive examination with the highest level of assurance
- Review - some analytical procedures conducted with limited assurance
- Compilation - based upon client information provided with no assurance
Sometimes, as signed CPA letter is not necessary, so we also prepare “plain-paper” financial statements.
There are other attest services available, including agreed-upon-procedures engagements and testing internal control systems, among others. Please contact us for more information.
Whatever the financial statement needs of your business, we can meet them with a service that is right for you.
We use accounting and auditing skills to provide an analysis of financial records in conjunction with dispute resolutions, business losses from a storm or fire, as well as in fraud and theft investigations. Our damage measurement methods can be a useful tool to assist in the determination of the extent of financial loss for insurance claims, and the extent of losses, from illegal accounting practices.
Budgeting, Forecasts & Projections
We can assist you in preparing forecasts and budgets to guide you in making financial decisions for your company. Many a profitable business has been slowed by cash flow issues. Make sure yours is not one of them. In addition to helping you to manage sources of cash flow and expenses, projections and budgets can identify any financing needs.
Financial forecasts and projections are a necessity when trying to effectively manage and lead a business to profitability. By attempting to predict future outcomes based on the business’s activities, both forecasts and projections seek to put the business owner in the driver’s seat. We can provide financial forecasts and projections that guide the business to future success.
Financial forecasts and projections are both forms of prospective financial statements. A prospective financial statement presents a company’s cash flow and financial position in future time periods. The difference between a forecast and a projection is the underlying assumption behind each one. A financial forecast assumes the business will be performing the same activities as it currently performs – it is basically a budget. A financial projection makes at least one hypothetical assumption about the company’s future activities, such as “what if we were to borrow money to expand?”
From simple projections to complex financial modeling, our experienced staff can assist you in achieving your company's financial goals.
