Business Audit and
The CTW team has the technical skill and industry experience to deliver high-quality audit and assurance services. Our professionals work with client management teams to ensure that we identify and adopt the latest accounting standards and financial reporting issues. Our teams also advise on the implementation of checks and balances to ensure accurate financial reporting results.
The professionals at CTW will work with you to plan and design financial statement audit engagements. This process is designed to minimize disruptions to your personnel and operations, while still adhering to professional standards.
The benefits of an audit include:
- Obtaining the highest level of assurance that can be provided on financial statements.
- Ensuring the accuracy of your financial statements. (This level of reasonable assurance is defined as high, but not absolute.)
You'll receive an audit report, a communication to decision-makers, and, if needed, information on internal control deficiencies.
A financial statement review, while less extensive than an audit, can help you get a deeper look into financial information and inquiries of management.
You will receive the following from CTW after your review:
- Limited assurance on your financial statements.
- An accountant's review report.
If you don't require any form of assurance on your financial statements, a compilation or preparation engagement may be a great fit. This assembles financial statements consistent with US GAAP and any other special purpose framework.
You will receive:
- An accountant's report
- Accompanying financial statements
