  • Clients enjoy working with higher level and recurring staff as this increases efficiencies and saves the client valuable time.

  • We have provided consultation and analysis to management on accounting for transactions which may not have clear authoritative guidance.

  • Although our audit procedures are not designed to provide assurance on internal controls, we generally find improvements that strengthen the control structure without additional cost.

  • As part of our audit, we obtain industry statistics and perform trend analysis and other analytical procedures, which we review with clients. This gives clients the opportunity to step back and take a big picture look at where the organization has been to help plan for where it is headed.

Our experience as non-profit board members gives us the unique perspective of understanding the needs of your organizations from the inside out. These philanthropic opportunities actually benefit us when serving our non-profit clients in a technical tax and audit capacity and we collectively have 50 years of non-profit board membership involvement.
