Audit & Attest
We Don’t Just Audit Your Past; We
Strengthen Your Future
Whether striving to expand and improve operations, attract or secure growth or investment capital or simply negotiate more favorable terms with their existing lender, we assist our clients in presenting their financial statements in the most informative and accurate manner possible. Our audit of these financial statements is often a required element in helping our clients meet their financing and growth objectives.
In order to accomplish financial statement audit objectives in a highly-effective manner that is meaningful to our clients, Cherry Bekaert employs an industry-specific, risk-based approach to auditing and assurance services, as well as attestation services. Proper planning, testing and accurate reporting, all with a strong emphasis on risk assessment, define our audit philosophy.
Our clients benefit from enhanced communication and streamlined internal processes that ensure we always meet or beat reporting deadlines and avoid surprises relating to our auditing and assurance services. The use of technology, including data extraction software and electronic work papers, adds to our efficiency and the ability to tailor our audit plan to each client’s operational structure.
In addition to financial statement audits, Cherry Bekaert also provides the following services:
