Audits, Reviews, and Compilation
Murray Aaron Petrey, PLLC's financial statement services comprise all three levels of assurance depending on your company's needs.
The objective of our audit is to express an opinion on whether your financial statements are fairly presented, in all material respects, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. We will conduct our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and will include tests of your accounting records and other procedures we consider necessary to express an unqualified opinion.
Our audit will involve performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in your financial statements. The procedures selected depend on auditor judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the we will consider internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances. Our audit will also include evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.
The objective of our review will be to express limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to your financial statements in order for them to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. We will conduct our review in accordance with Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A review includes primarily applying analytical procedures to management’s financial data and making inquiries of organization management. Procedures applied will be less in scope than an audit.
The objective of our compilation will be to prepare your financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America based on information provided by you. We will apply our accounting and financial reporting expertise to assist you in the presentation of financial statements without undertaking to obtain or provide any assurance on those statements.
