Assurance & Accounting

We understand that relevant, transparent and independently reviewed financial information is critical in building confidence both within your organization and with external stakeholders. Management at all levels requires this information to develop the strategies that provide direction for your business.

We are committed to your success by ensuring you have timely, meaningful and reliable financial information prepared under any of the Canadian financial reporting frameworks, including International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE) and Accounting Standards for Not-for-Profit Organizations (ASNPO)

Our accounting and advisory services will support you in ensuring your organization meets all its financial reporting requirements.  Whether you require support with implementing new accounting standards or you are adapting to changes in regulatory requirements, we can assist you with developing accounting strategies and policies to meet your needs. 

Accounting and advisory services may be required in the following scenarios:

  • Changes to accounting standards
  • New regulatory reporting requirements
  • Preparation for initial Public Offerings (IPO) or sale of business
  • Integration of recently acquired subsidiaries
  • Implementation of new accounting and reporting software

We strive to provide superior service by understanding each of our client's unique circumstances and tailoring an audit approach that meets their needs.  Combining the use of advanced technology, analytics and technical acumen, we prepare our audit to ensure your financial statements are reliability and credible. 

We prepare audits across all industries and organization sizes including privately owned corporations, large global enterprises and not-for-profits.  Through the review and analysis of financial information during the audit process, our professionals will communicate any risks, irregularities or internal control deficiencies. We deliver excellence and an independent perspective to help you obtain accurate financial statements.

Audits may be required for the following:

  • Regulatory requirements
  • Government funding programs
  • Preparation for an Initial Public Offering (IPO)
  • Conditions pursuant to a banking agreement
  • Investor or shareholder requirements
  • Due diligence related to a business acquisition

Compilation engagements are the most basic form of financial statements and are often prepared when an audit or review engagement are not required.  Compilations are often prepared for tax purposes or management reporting. 

We work with closely with our clients to understand their business and corporate structure when compiling their financial statements.  During this process, we actively engage with our clients to provide advice on tax planning and risk mitigation.

With an increased focus on governance, corporate responsibility, fraud detection and financial reporting, internal controls represent a critical function for organizations of all sizes.  

Through our internal audit support function, we will work with you to ensure that your organization is mitigating risk and enhancing controls. Our professionals will work closely with you and your team to ensure the organization achieves and maintains best practices.

Financial statement review engagements provide limited assurance through discussion with management and an analysis of the financial information.  Unlike audits, reviews are less invasive and source documentation is not reviewed.  However, reviewed financial statements will offer greater assurance than compilations. 

Our team has extensive experience in providing financial statement reviews for companies of all sizes across all industries.  We offer added value during review engagement process by actively engaging with our clients to provide advice on tax planning and risk mitigation.

Reviews may be necessary in the following scenarios:

  • Regulatory requirements
  • Government funding programs
  • Conditions pursuant to a banking agreement
  • Potential investor requirements
  • Due diligence related to a business acquisition

Assurance may be required on certain financial information other than a company's financial statements. Alternatively, assurance may also be required on financial statements prepared under alternative accounting standards.  In these cases, the special purpose audits will be produced to report on specific information only. Our team routinely issues such special reports for many of our clients. Special purpose reports are often required for bank reporting, government funding programs, regulatory requirements or industry-specific reporting.
