A review, less in scope than an audit, consists of making inquiries of management, examination of supporting documentation, and understanding the internal control structure of an organization. During a review there is no confirmation of balances, or any audit tests applied to the underlying data or to the representations made by management. We do apply analytical procedures to the underlying data and representations to identify unusual items or trends that may need further explanation. A successful completion of this review allows us with a reasonable basis for expressing limited assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements in order for them to be in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).


A compilation consists of taking the organizations financial data and presenting it in a financial statement format. There is no verification of balances, revenue or expense classifications, and typically no analytical review is required. We issue a standard report which states the financial statements have been compiled and offer no assurance as to whether material changes would be necessary to conform to GAAP.
