Why does my organization need assurance services?
Audits help to ensure that an organization is complying with laws, regulations, and internal policies. This is important for maintaining legal and regulatory compliance and avoiding penalties or fines.
An audit can identify weaknesses in an organization’s internal controls or processes. This can help the organization to improve its operations and reduce the risk of fraud or error.
An independent audit or attestation can enhance an organization's credibility with stakeholders, such as investors, customers, and regulators. It demonstrates that the organization is transparent and accountable.
An audit provides assurance to stakeholders that an organization's financial statements are accurate and reliable. This is important for making informed decisions about investing or lending money to the organization.
Facilitate decision making:
Audits can provide insights
into an organization's financial performance & risk management practices. This information can help stakeholders make informed decisions about the organization's future.
“When I first started working with Carl Austin of Bowers, I was a bit intimated due to them being a larger firm when they were brought in to help mediate a deal between a willing buyer and a willing seller but we couldn’t get over the finish line. The seller is who ask Carl to help us and to be honest, in the beginning I worried the support would be one sided because he was brought in by the seller. What I found was so much different than what I expected – Carl helped us get to a deal we could call a “Win, Win”. He got us over that finish line.
I can say without question, without Bowers I would not be sitting where I am today as an owner. From our acquisition, to becoming our accountants, business and personal taxes, helping in another small startup, overall financial advising, to the networks/contacts for Insurance, 401K, and payroll I could not have ask for better help with someone who I know cares as much about our success as much as I do. They are vested in us personally and that means a lot.
What I found was a personal approach but with tremendous resources in every aspect of buying, owning, and managing a business. What I found was a business partner/advisor in everyone I have worked with on their team.”
