Audits, Reviews, and Compilation

Christensen Palmer & Ambrose PC's financial statement services comprise all three levels of assurance depending on your company's needs.

Audits

Audits offer the highest level of assurance to third parties, and include in-depth examination and confirmation of account balances, inventories, and selected transactions. We perform audits for you to remove errors, ascertaining the validity and reliability of your information.

Reviews

Reviews provide limited assurance to outside interests and involve inquiries and analytical procedures that confirm financial statement matters and identify any items requiring further analysis. We perform reviews to ensure the integrity of your data.

Compilations

Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes and are based upon information provided by a company's management. They do not offer assurance but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.

Financial and Retirement Planning

Christensen Palmer & Ambrose PC's goal is to help you reach your financial goals and maintain financial independence through a comfortable retirement.

The road to retirement is a long one and we can help you to take the proper steps to reach your goals.

QuickBooks Accounting Help and Assistance

QuickBooks can provide useful and timely information in the form of financial statements, reports and graphs. However, it can only provide this information if you purchase the right product and then install, setup and use it properly. We don't just help you use the software, we help you use it more efficiently and more effectively.

Review

Our QuickBooks review service helps companies that have the human resources to perform daily accounting and payroll tasks, but need an accounting and payroll expert to review your transactions, accounts and reports. This review ensures that you receive timely, relevant and reliable financial information.

Reviews may be conducted at any time, but monthly reviews provide you with up-to-date information and feedback about your business.
