Accounting & Assurance

Exactly What Your Business Needs

Imagine it’s the early years of your brand-new company—the business plan is set in motion. You’re generating sales, making monthly lease payments, even throwing epic annual Christmas parties. With all the action taking place you need a rock star CPA firm to handle all your accounting and bookkeeping services, which include monthly prepared financial statements that management can evaluate. ATKG CAN DO THAT.

A couple of years down the road you ditch that cramped office space and purchase a building that you can call your own. As part of the loan covenant on the note, the bank requires compiled financial statements. ATKG CAN DO THAT TOO.

Business is good but you’re ready to expand into a new market. You need funding for research, travel, and additional personnel. With this larger line-of-credit, the bank will request reviewed financial statements to provide a higher level of assurance. ATKG CAN DO THAT ALSO. You need $2 million more to start building that new location? That’s great. But expect the bank to want a CPA to quantify and validate specific information about your inventory, accounts receivable, or other relevant financial statement data in the form of agreed upon procedures. YOU GUESSED IT. ATKG CAN DO THAT.

As your company grows, you’ve been forced to delegate the finance, purchasing, and sales responsibilities. How can you be sure that all these departments are running with minimal operating errors, and more importantly, without occurrences of fraud? To help set your mind at ease you need an internal control review team to come in and assess the effectiveness of your financial reporting controls. DO WE REALLY NEED TO SAY IT? ATKG CAN DO THAT AS WELL.

No matter which stage your company is in, ATKG has its team of rock stars that provide unparallel financial statement and assurance services to fit your needs.

Compiled Financial Statements
  • ATKG issues a compilation report after gaining an understanding of your business, accounting principles, and financial reporting system to present financial statements

  • Typically appropriate when a business or a third party wish to evaluate results according to their specific use

Internal Control Risk Assessment
  • ATKG performs this assessment to assist a business in evaluating its current internal controls over its financial reporting
  • Intended for businesses who wish to ensure reliability and integrity of financial information and safeguarding of assets
  • Typically, appropriate if a business’ internal controls have never or have not recently been evaluated by a CPA
