Audit & Assurance
At Allan Smith & Company, CPAs PC, we understand that few companies have an audit performed because they want to. For most, an audit is the requirement of a bank, bonding company, governance authority or others to provide “assurance” and receive or maintain the necessary capital to effectively operate and grow their business. Our assurance services are provided with this in mind.
Our audits are performed in a technically accurate, verifiable, timely and imminently reliable manner to satisfy the requirements of the most discerning financial statement users. We possess the highest qualifications and an outstanding reputation in the financial community; in fact, as auditors, we agree to be regularly audited by one of our peer firms and the opinion on our process is available to the public. This is important to us. We want those who rely on our advice to know that they can count on us.

On the other hand, we make sure that our audits are performed efficiently, through careful planning, preparation and use of the best of today’s technology. Our audit process was developed to streamline the time and effort our client personnel must expend, while providing sound, reliable audited financial statements. Our “team” approach to the audit process allows our clients to establish the expectations and time lines, manage the deliverables using our detailed request for supporting document provided in advance of our process, and control access to staff and records so as to not interfere with their demanding schedule and on-going workflow requirements.
Additionally, our assurance team is a unique blend of audit professionals that possess all the essential qualities of a strong auditor, and the attitude, personality and genuine concern and commitment to our clients. This makes the audit process less painful, while still providing a valuable tool for your company and a guide for improving your operational results.
