The highest level of assurance available for your financial statements is an audit. Audited financial statements are used to report to shareholders, bankers, creditors and government. To prepare and support your firm to be audit-ready, we will take a customized approach and tailor the engagement to meet your requirements. Bateman MacKay provides a thorough, independent and professional opinion on the fairness of the financial statements.
