Rowbotham International is a member of Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. This designation requires extensive peer review of the firm's audit procedures and allows us to audit publicly-held companies as well as private concerns.
Our services include auditing, reviewing, and compiling financial statements. An audit provides for the highest level of assurance and an opinion that your financial statements fairly represent your company's financial position in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. An audit may be necessary for SEC or other regulatory requirements to assure the integrity of the financial controls and that the financial statements are free from material misstatement.
A review provides limited assurance and an opinion that no material modifications need to be made co your financial statements.
A compilation is useful when you have limited in-house capabilities for preparing financial statements or the needs of the business don't require an audit or review. Since complied statements are not audited or reviewed, no opinion is expressed.
