The SEC Private Practice Section within the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) allows national, regional and local firms to practice in areas where SEC matters are involved.

Since commencing business in 1991, the firm has continued to meet the AICPA Peer Review Requirements. In all reviews to date, Rowbotham International has received an "unqualified opinion" report, certifying that the firm is qualified to practice before the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Rowbotham International is experienced in managing accounting issues and public filing concerns related to public companies. We can perform Form 10-K and 10-KSB audits and Form 10-Q and 10-QSB reviews. In addition, we can assist you with the registration of new issued shares, an initial public offering, or the registration of shares previously issued.
