Which assurance service is right for you?
An audit provides assurance in the form of an opinion as to whether the financial statements are fairly stated in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework (typically generally accepted accounting principles). Audit services give end users objective and independent assurance concerning the accuracy and reliability of the information.
Reviews are limited in scope compared to audits. A review is conducted to provide limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements for them to be in conformity with the financial reporting framework. A review primarily involves CarlsonSV’s team making inquiries of management and performing analytical procedures on the financial data.
Compilations do not offer an opinion or any assurance on the financial statements. CarlsonSV’s team will gather your information and “compile” it into a set of financial statements. We will talk through your financial statements with you to help you understand your results and oversee your business more effectively.
Agreed-Upon Procedures engagements typically address a specific concern or need in the organization, and we’ll work with you to identify those needs. We will issue a report of findings based only on the specific procedures performed on pre-identified areas of concern. An agreed-upon procedures engagement provides only factual findings and does not offer opinions, conclusions or assurances in the final report.
