ASSURANCE SERVICES

Our number one goal is to provide you with an exceptional customer experience. Whether you are looking for an audit, review or compilation for your lenders, investors or internal management team, we have new solutions tailored specifically to the automotive industry. Think of it as the new product line-up. We have redesigned the service delivery of the traditional assurance engagement to have a completely different look and feel. We are governed by the AICPA code of professional conduct and follow the standards promulgated by the various regulatory bodies; so while we are changing the look and feel of the traditional assurance services, you will first and foremost be receiving the highest level of quality governed by our profession.

Our assurance services follow a risk-based approach, not only for financial reporting purposes, but also operationally. With our history working in and around dealerships, we know the challenges that you face every day and will offer you honest feedback about what we observe while working with you.

Finally, we have a highly technical team dedicated to continuously improving the audit process. Using technology to the fullest in our assurance services, we are efficient and effective in our service delivery. We can better hone in on key risk areas and tailor our requests accordingly to cut down on your preparation time for our visits.
