Financial Statement Audit

Plante Moran

We believe the audit should function as more than a historical compliance activity — it should provide ideas and suggestions to improve accounting procedures and internal controls. Our process includes discussions with you to review your financial statements and the insights they contain — all to help you balance risk, value, and cost.

When we audit your organization’s financial statement, you benefit from our thoroughness and professionalism as well as our focus on client service. Our reputation, and our respected audit opinions help you assure stakeholders, as well as tax authorities, banks, regulators, suppliers, customers, and employees that your financial statement accurately represents the state of your organization.

Our team of specialists knows the challenges and business risks facing your industry and takes the time to listen to your organization's unique concerns. Depending on the needs you've identified, we also offer clients other attest services, including reviews and compilation. We can also assist with performing specified procedures, limited use reports, and procedures in relation to parent company reporting packages.
