Audit + Assurance Services

There are many reasons a company may need to have a financial statement audit, review or compilation conducted. Often it’s a requirement of bankers, investors, vendors, sureties or others seeking assurance about the financial condition and vitality of a company.

While the accounting rules and regulations are basically the same, the overall experience and engagement approach can vary widely when selecting a service provider. Our team of professionals provides both traditional audit and more complex assurance services to privately held companies. Our audit process is built upon open communication, transparency, and a commitment to client satisfaction. The result is an audit that is completed on time with no surprises. HTB’s assurance team is committed to adding value to your organization.

Agreed Upon Procedures

There are circumstances that may warrant a special situation where your business may need assurance procedures performed without the need for a full-blown audit or review of your financial statements. The parties involved typically include an audit firm, the company subject to the procedures and a third party that will receive the report. In these instances, all the parties will agree to the procedures being performed.

This group of services is known as agreed-upon procedures (“AUP”), and HTB performs many AUP engagements every year. AUP is more limited in scope than an audit, making it possible to focus on the areas of greatest concern and providing a cost-effective alternative to an audit. Many of these engagements are unique for particular industries that we specialize in, such as construction or auto dealerships, while others are for any business.
