Audit Procedures

Our Approach

Our audit approach is unique, because it is designed to avoid disruption to your normal day-to-day operations. You’ll receive intuitive and informed responses to your questions quickly, because lack of communication simply stalls your momentum and makes it harder for your organization to draw conclusions and take action based on our agreed-upon procedures findings.


While agreed-upon procedure engagements are not meant to fulfill any assurance requirements, they do allow us to partner with companies to assist them in the evaluation of the condition of their accounting procedures and records. Common accounting procedures performed during these engagements include:

  • Review of transaction details in specified documentation
  • Confirmation of information or transactions with third-party organizations
  • Cross-comparison of documents fitting specified criteria
  • Evaluation of specific procedures on work performed by third-parties

Since this is not an audit, review or compilation of the financial statements, we do not issue an opinion on the accounting records. In addition, our reports remain restricted to the appropriate parties, and adhere to requirements of the AICPA’s Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE).
