Audit, Advisory, and Assurance
Kerkering, Barberio & Co. provides professional services to a wide range of clients in a variety of industries. As such, our clients have various needs. To accommodate these needs, we specialize in the following:
- Audit - Financial statement audits are performed for clients from a variety of industries from non-profit organizations to manufacturers. Our dedicated team of audit professionals possess industry specific technical knowledge and accounting expertise, which allows us to quickly respond to client needs. We utilize the latest computerized techniques to conduct our audits and provide the highest quality of assurance services.
- Review and Compilation - Certain entities may not need the level of assurance that an audit provides. A review includes the performance of inquiry, analytical and other procedures by members of our team to accumulate evidence to obtain limited assurance that an entity’s financial statements are free of material misstatements. A compilation consists of assisting management in presenting financial information in the form of financial statements.
- Agreed-Upon Procedures - It may be beneficial to have our team perform procedures that focus on specific areas of interest rather than conduct an audit or review of the entity’s financial statements. The scope of such an engagement is flexible and specific to the needs of the users. Our team creates and provides a report of procedures and findings focusing on the areas identified by management and/or other users of the reports.
- Internal Control Consulting - We assist clients in evaluating and strengthening an entity’s internal controls. Consulting services are tailored based on client needs and may include analyzing a particular process (over-the-counter receipt of cash) or performing an organization-wide internal control assessment. Our recommendations are presented and documented in a written report. We are also available to assist with implementing recommendations, developing written accounting policies and procedures, and/or facilitating internal control training.
