A clean unmodified opinion is the Accounting Profession's definition that your financial statements do not contain material errors or misstatements. However, the goal of our audit is not just to meet regulatory requirements, but to form a long-lasting partnership by putting our experience and industry knowledge to work for you.
Supervisory Committee Guide Audits
For those clients who do not require a certified audit, we can perform a Supervisory Committee Guide Audit. Although this type of audit does not offer an opinion, it does satisfy the minimum requirement for the Supervisory Committee to comply with regulatory agencies.
Pension Plan Audits
The Department of Labor (DOL) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) are the government mandates for a pension plan audit. Generally, plans with 100 participants at the beginning of the plan year are required to file as a “large” plan which triggers the audit requirement.
The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) defines internal auditing as “an independent objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance process.
Keeping abreast of regulatory compliance issues can be a daunting task. Compliance covers all areas of your institution’s operations and the regulations are constantly changing. In order to ensure ongoing compliance with critical regulations, a regular review and assessment is a must.
