Audit and Assurance

In financial reporting engagements, the firm believes that independence, in fact and in appearance, is to be maintained in all engagements where it is required or professionally warranted. Particular attention is to be directed to understanding the entity’s business and the environment in which it operates, and to ensuring that any specialized knowledge required by the engagement is appropriately brought to bear. Accounting issues are to be resolved based on our understanding of the substance of the underlying transactions, not their form. An attitude of healthy professional skepticism is maintained. Clients are urged to adopt accounting and reporting practices that we believe are appropriate in the circumstances.
