Internal Control Review
An internal control review concentrates on the organization of the financial reporting structure and processes of a company. This review is different from most other accounting services because it concentrates on the control structure that produces the financial information and not on the financial information itself.
During an internal control review, Topping, Kessler & Co. will study a company to identify its financial reporting strengths and weaknesses.
We will be particularly attentive to the weaknesses and explain to management how these weaknesses could adversely affect the company's ability to record, process, summarize and report financial information.
Our recommendations to strengthen the internal controls and consequently provide asset protection and assurance that transactions are executed in accordance with management's authorization. After Topping, Kessler & Co. performs any accounting-related procedure for your company, you will receive a management letter or report that details our findings and recommendations.
Performing agreed-upon procedures is a process of applying specific procedures to an area of a financial statement or within a specific accounting cycle. When agreed-upon procedures are requested, a member of the Topping, Kessler & Co. team will meet with you to determine what specific goals you are trying to accomplish and the procedures that will help achieve those goals. Agreed-upon Procedures are then performed to provide management or others with an opinion regarding the fairness of information presented.
Ratio analysis is the financial analysis of a company that identifies trends concerning the company's financial stability and ability to meet its current operational obligations.
