Financial Statement Audit
When you engage a Plante Moran audit team, you can expect more than compliance. Our audit professionals understand the risks and opportunities manufacturers face and can provide meaningful recommendations for efficiency and control improvements.

Financial Statement Audit

Manufacturers appreciate our value-added, hassle-free approach to audits

When was the last time your auditor helped you save money? During a recent financial statement audit for a metal stamper, we identified $400,000 in property tax savings. After conducting a financial statement audit for an automotive supplier, we suggested management take a closer look at benefit plan costs. They followed up on the suggestion and found ways to cut the cost of benefits by approximately $300,000 in the first year.

When you engage a Plante Moran audit team, you can expect more than compliance because we know the manufacturing industry. Because we serve more than 1,000 manufacturers, we do extensive studies and benchmark best practices. As a result, our audit team understands the risks and opportunities manufacturers face and can provide meaningful recommendations for efficiency and control improvements.

As auditors, we know which questions to ask so you can take advantage of opportunities to improve cash flow — from tax credits to real estate decisions.

You will benefit from our award-winning firm culture

We can confidently say that you will enjoy working with our audit team. Many organizations and publications have honored the firm as a top place to work. That is because we have a culture based on the firm's philosophy of nurturing staff and putting the client first.

This culture encourages collaboration, and you benefit. For instance, we understand that every decision has book and tax implications, so our audit and tax teams work together to deliver seamless service and help you make the best decisions for your business.

Our culture also translates into very low staff turnover, so you will see many of the same team members year after year. On that team will be a partner and a senior manager who will be available to discuss issues as they arise and to offer possible solutions.

We will look at your issues from all angles. We will accommodate your concerns in creative ways, while ensuring you remain in compliance.

You can trust us

As an audit client, we can promise you that:

  • Your internal controls and financial statements will be reviewed by reputable, experienced industry professionals.
  • You will receive objective, independent, accurate information in a timely manner.

Plante Moran recruits the coolest bunch of CPAs — they are professional and smart. They won our trust with their audit and tax work. Now they advise us on a range of issues from our 401(k) plan to our operations in Mexico. Switching to Plante Moran is the best darn decision we’ve ever made.
