ATLAS is pleased to provide professional Attestation Services for any size business. Our attestation professionals provide conclusions that confirm the reliability of written information requested of you, or used by third parties. In these engagements, we provide independent verification of information, other than financial statements, by examining, reviewing or applying agreed-upon procedures to the subject matter at hand such as determining your compliance with a contract. We’re also able to provide assurance regarding an assertion about the subject matter such as confirming that what your company is reporting is accurate.
We bring the same level of professionalism and attention to detail that we bring to our audit services to our attestation services. ATLAS’s Assurance Services professionals’ experience and expertise enhance the quality of the information for decision makers and our reputation for integrity reinforces the credibility of your company.
The subjects of attestation engagements may take many forms, including:
- Internal control systems and processes
- Historic or anticipated performance
- Non-financial performance or condition information such as physical characteristics
- Break-even analyses
- Behavior information, such as compliance or contract provisions
Attestation engagements are used in diverse situations, such as:
- Agreed-upon procedures engagements
- Reporting on financial forecasts and projections
- Reporting on pro forma financial information
- Reporting on an entity’s internal control over financial reporting
- Compliance attestation
Compilations and Reviews
Compilations and reviews are alternatives to audit engagements, designed specifically for smaller businesses. The purpose of these alternatives is to enhance the credibility and reliability of a company’s financial statements when regulators, lenders, suppliers or others request the participation of an external CPA. ATLAS’ Compilation and Review Services are performed in accordance with the Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services issued by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
Compilations are limited to reading a company’s financial statements, as provided by management, and considering whether they are in an appropriate form and free from obvious errors. Review engagements go a step further, adding inquiries about company personnel and analytical procedures to financial data, as well as limited assurance on the financial data. Both compilation and review engagements are significantly less in scope than an audit performed in accordance with generally accepted audit standards. The limited scope is explained in our report, which accompanies the compiled or reviewed financial statements. ATLAS professionals can help you choose which alternative: compilation, review, or audit is the most appropriate and cost-effective choice for your company and circumstances.
