Compilation, review and audits are the three ways that financial statement reporting is provided by a certified public accounting firm, with different degrees of assurance. A compilation is the most basic level of service, in which MKG does not obtain or provide any assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements. A review report is more detailed than a compilation statement and assures that the certified public accountant is not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the financial statements. The audit is the highest level of financial statement service providing the user with the auditor's opinion that the financial statements are presented fairly, in all material respects, in conformity with the applicable financial reporting framework.
We start by looking at credit agreements with lenders to see if they have a specific reporting requirement. If no requirement exists, MKG will review your current goals and objectives and discuss which financial reporting requirements fits your needs.
