Financial success relies on having the right information at the right time.

With Contryman Associates P.

We stress communication and responsiveness throughout the process, whether working remotely or visiting you in person. Discover what makes our service experience different.

Defining Audits, Reviews, and Compilations

Exploring the distinctions between audits, reviews, and compilations is crucial for businesses and organizations striving to make well-informed financial decisions. Each service plays a pivotal role, offering varying levels of insight and assurance.

Contrymans has a team of professionals do complete audit services for our clients

Audit Services

As the most comprehensive form of assurance service, audits involve the expression of an opinion on a company's financial statements, aligning with Generally Accepted Accounting Practices (GAAP). Typically mandated by financing, investor, or governmental regulations, audits entail an independent evaluation of a entity's internal accounting system and financial records, culminating in a comprehensive audit report.

Review Services

Offering a more limited assurance, reviews encompass analytical procedures performed on financial statements to attain a broad understanding of the company's financial status. Unlike audits, reviews do not express an opinion and provide a lesser degree of assurance. They are often necessary for companies seeking financing.

Compilation Services

Involving the organization of a company's financial information into general-purpose financial statements such as balance sheets and income statements, compilations may also aid in developing budgets or necessary reporting documents. While cost-effective, compilations do not offer any assurance, as no opinion is provided on the financial statements or related documents.

Comparing the Three Services

An effective way to conceptualize these services is in terms of scale: small (compilations), medium (reviews), and large (audits). They differ in the complexity of procedures, time required for completion, and level of detail provided.

Assurance Level

Audits offer the highest level of assurance, assuring that financial statements are free from significant misstatements, while reviews offer limited assurance, and compilations provide no assurance.

Dependence on Management

Audits extensively verify data provided by management, whereas reviews entail minimal testing, and compilations rely mainly on furnished information from management.

Internal Controls

Audits involve evaluating a company's internal controls, a step absent in reviews and compilations.

Time and Cost

Audits demand substantial hours and cost more due to rigorous procedures. Reviews are less time-intensive and moderately priced, while compilations require minimal effort and are cost-effective.
