Many Chicago companies are required to undergo an annual financial statement audit. While each may have their own specific needs, they are typically conducted to satisfy the reporting requirements of government agencies, banks, vendors, and/or suppliers. In any situation, where an auditor is required to express an opinion about the financial condition of an organization, including representation and accuracy of the financial statements, an audit is required. The audit process involves several phases including advanced planning, preliminary fieldwork, assessment of risk areas, substantive procedures, and more. While there are common standards that every Chicago CPA firm must follow when performing a financial statement audit, it doesn’t mean every audit is the same.
Selden Fox deploys an audit approach that seeks to identify the most significant business risks. Special attention is placed on these areas of concern. When necessary, recommendations are made on how to improve controls. Once identified, the risk areas are examined and tested according to established standards. Following this process, we deliver an efficient audit that saves your team time and reduces the number of daily distractions. Finally, we also provide management with prompt advice, recommendations, and responses to any questions or concerns. In other words, our process is designed to be minimally disruptive to your business or organization.
