Auditor in NYC

Audit, Reviews
& Compilations

Building trust and solving complex problems for your business.



The overarching goal of an audit is to help your business recover costs, contain expenses, and to drive compliance of vendors and others with whom you are in a contract-based relationship. Through a review of prior purchases and spending, it can be determined what areas are out of control and if any contracts or pricing agreements are being violated. Are your purchases going forward in compliance? Are your vendors satisfying the terms of the existing agreements? We can conduct a cost analysis to identify areas to target when initiating sourcing strategies. Because we work with hundreds of firms in every business category, we know what is standard for your industry and what is unusual.

Audit Pensions

Pensions & Profit-Sharing Plan Audits

Large Plans require a professional and independent audit. But there are other reasons to have your Plan audited – to help protect the Plan’s assets and the financial integrity of your employee benefit plan and to ensure the necessary funds will be available to pay retirement, health insurance, and other promised benefits to your employees. A proper audit also will enable you to meet your legal responsibility to file a complete and accurate annual return or Plan document each year.

Because an incomplete, inadequate, or untimely audit report may result in penalties being assessed against you as the Plan’s administrator, your selection of an auditor is very important. The Adeptus professionals who conduct your audit know your company and your issues so it is our policy to assign the same auditors to your account every year to ensure consistency and efficiency.

Reviews & Compilations
Reviews & Compilations

Many times a company can benefit from a CPA’s technical expertise and examination of the company’s financials without the expense and intrusion of an audit. This would be either a Review or a Compilation. This work does not require us to study or evaluate your financial controls or to verify third-party data. Instead, we rely on our knowledge of accounting principles and a general understanding of your business to be able to state that the information presented is the representation of your firm and that the materials conform to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. We will go over the strength and weaknesses of these two types of reports with you so you can understand which report type is best for your situation.

Audit FAQs

Audit Approach

Our audit approach is simple…invest a substantial amount of time getting to know you, your needs and your wants. Then we learn about your business, not simply relying on our knowledge of the business that you are in. We want to know how you do what you do. After that initial phase is complete, we then break down the auditing process into three simple parts, the Planning Phase, Fieldwork Phases, and Reporting Phase.



During this phase, we will be able to get a good grasp of your organization’s structure, environment, operations and the overall accounting and internal controls system. An assessment of policies and accounting contributions, including donated materials and services, will also be conducted at this time. From this review, we hope to:

  • Analyze financial reports
  • Briefly interview your accounting staff
  • Understand internal controls
  • Evaluate auditing procedures tailored to each specific instance
  • Identify issues or areas of special concern to be addressed from the client

Information gathered during the first visit will generate the requested list of items needed from you and your staff for the fieldwork visit. This list will be provided shortly after our initial planning visit.


At our second visit, we will perform the traditional audit fieldwork. This process will concentrate on transaction testing. During this phase, the auditor determines whether the controls identified during the preliminary review are operating properly and in the manner described by the client. It is throughout this phase that we hope to:

  • Gather and summarize audit findings, conclusions and recommendations
  • Test the major internal controls and the accuracy and propriety of the transactions
  • Discuss any significant findings with client
  • Receive insight and cooperation from the client to determine best method for resolving the findings
  • Generate memos/emails to ensure full understanding by the client and the auditor

Audit 8


When the audit is in the final phase, the team will draft our report. Here, we express our opinions, present the audit findings and discuss recommendations for improvements. At this point, the client will have an opportunity to respond to the audit findings prior to issuance of the final report.
