Reviews & Compilations   

Reviews and compilations are foundational accounting services that offer you or your business credibility when requesting a loan. Think of it as a cover letter that declares a CPAs confidence in your financial statements.

 

Compilation

A compilation is much simpler to perform than a review. The CPA will already be checking your financial statements so you won’t need to do any special preparation. We recommend compilations for small business owners looking to obtain a personal loan

Review

Reviews require a deeper look into your finances than compilations. Financial reviews are recommended for those looking to get a business loan.

 

Here’s what we’ll do

Reviews are typically needed when a lender, investor, or buyer isn’t taking a large risk with your company. This is usually the case with a line of credit or a small business loan. In some circumstances, businesses need to abide by specific loan covenants. When that situation arises, we recommend having a conversation with us about whether a review or an audit will serve you best. Many companies will use a review to cut down the difficulties that come with a first-year audit.

IRS Representation

There are few things more stressful in life than getting audited by the IRS. The tedious obstacle course of record gathering and reporting is a frustrating and time-consuming task. During an audit, the IRS will go through your records with a fine-tooth comb. Any issues they have with you or your records can result in a weighty tax bill. 

It may be tempting to save money by handling your audit on your own. However, untrained eyes may not pick up on flaws resulting in a tax bill much higher than a representative’s fee. IRS Auditors know how to use fear and intimidation as a strategy to pull extra information out of you that you are not required to give.

 

When you trust our firm with your audit, we will handle the IRS for you. There is no need for you to become frustrated with the complex paperwork and hoops you need to jump through. We will handle every step of your audit so you can keep focusing on your business.
