Assurance Services

Audit

An audit requires an independent examination and testing of accounting records, obtaining an understanding of your controls, procedures, and management practices. Tests may include written confirmation with outside parties, observation of inventories, and the testing of selected transactions by examining supporting documents. Audited financial statements provide reasonable assurance that the financial statements are not materially misstated. The financial statements include an independent opinion.

Review

A review requires performing analytical procedures on your financial information and management inquiries. A review provides limited assurance that no material changes need to be made to the financial statements.

Compilation

A compilation requires preparing the financial statements with information provided by management. Companies that need help preparing their financial statements find compilations quite useful when providing financial information to third parties. A compilation does not provide any assurance as to the reasonableness of the financial information.

Agreed-Upon Procedures (AUP)

An agreed-upon procedures (AUP) engagement is an attestation engagement where the client and a third party agree to have an auditor perform specific procedures that the parties agree upon in advance. The auditor does not provide an opinion, which is one aspect that differentiates it from an audit. The auditor only reports the factual findings based on the results of performing the agreed-upon procedures, allowing the parties to draw their own conclusions on the subject matter.

AUP engagements may focus on specific financial or non-financial data. A few examples include performing procedures on numeric information, debt agreements, internal controls and leases and royalty agreements.

An AUP engagement can be a good solution when a third party needs to obtain comfort over the numeric information, compliance with agreements and internal controls.

Consult with our experienced auditors at Reynolds + Rowella to assist you with designing appropriate procedures and to determine if an AUP engagement is the right solution for you.

Quality of Earnings (QoE)

Assessing quality of earnings (QoE) and significant balance sheet accounts requires exceptional technical and analytic proficiency and the expertise and discipline to hyper-focus on critical issues facing a potential acquisition or investment. Our QoE reports provide the advantage of early information as well as the story of a company’s earnings accuracy and sustainability, financial trends and relationships, working capital, and more.

Reynolds + Rowella understands the challenges and opportunities presented by QoE reports and the rigors of due diligence throughout the deal process for corporate buyers and sellers.

The QoE report highlights the key aspects of your business for a specified historical period. These key aspects include:

 

  • Normalized level of EBITDA and the addbacks to bridge from reported EBITDA to adjusted EBITDA
  • Fluctuations in annual and monthly financial information
  • Revenue and gross margin by product, customer, or distribution segments
  • Operating expenses and employee analysis
  • Key balance sheet highlights
