Unwavering integrity is one of our core values at John W. Currier & Company, Ltd. and a foundation upon which we have built our assurance services. We provide three levels of services: compilations, reviews and audits.
A compilation involves taking the financial information a company provides us and preparing the data in the form of a financial statement.
A review is more detailed than a compilation, but not as extensive as an audit. We perform a review of a company’s financial statements using analytical and inquiry procedures.
An audit provides an independent examination of a company’s financial position. It determines whether a company’s financial statements are fairly presented.
Timely and accurate financial reporting provides you with the most critical information needed to make key business decisions and meet today’s demanding requirements by regulators and financial institutions. We provide comprehensive and detailed financial statement compilations, reviews and audit services that are delivered on time.
Our peer review stated that our system of quality control for our accounting and review practice is properly designed and executed to assure proper performance in conforming with all professional standards.
These services help owners and managers make operating decision, enable creditors to evaluate loan application, and provide individuals with information to make investment decisions. Our Audit and Assurance services include:
