Interpreting and communicating what your financial statements say about your performance helps business owners meet challenges and opportunities head-on.
No Ivory Tower Approach
Our local decision making means we can keep your audit process moving forward without administrative delays.
While it’s important to maintain independence for the integrity of the audit, our approach is based on client-centric processes and genuine relationships.
Tailored for You
Our experienced auditors focus on right-sizing the process so we neither get bogged down in unnecessary steps nor take shortcuts that sacrifice quality.
What Level of Assurance is Right for Your Business?
Financial reporting shouldn’t feel like rocket science. We make the complex simple. At LGA, we take the time to sit down and communicate our findings with clients so you’ll understand what they mean for your business. Going beyond the traditional auditor role, we don’t just identify problems, we present impactful solutions.
Review: Analytical procedures resulting in more limited assurance
Compilation: Presenting client-provided information in the form of financial statements
Agreed Upon Procedures: Examination or review procedures applied to specific assertions or elements
