We are skilled and experienced in U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS). We offer equal expertise in the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), International Standards on Auditing (ISA), and individual country specific standards, such as HGB (Germany).

In the United States, a company can use one of three levels of attest – compilation, the least thorough; review, the middle level; or audit, the highest level of assurance. We can help you select the level of service that best meets your needs and objectives for your enterprise. Furthermore, you can turn to us for audits, reviews and compilations of specified elements of your financial statement or of special-purpose presentations, including those to third parties. If your assurance needs are internal and not based on statutory requirements, we also can tailor a very specific agreed-upon procedure engagement based on your needs, avoiding the more expensive cost of a review or audit.

You can be assured of the quality of our services, as our auditing and accounting quality-control system undergoes stringent and regular reviews by a team of independent outside examiners approved by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. We have consistently received high ratings in these “peer reviews.”

When you engage us for auditing services, be assured that we will work closely with you to schedule our work at your location so as to be as unintrusive as possible. Whenever possible we assure audit staff repetition on the same engagements year after year (the review partner may change because of regulatory requirements). Knowledge of your business builds our risk assessment skills and promotes audit efficiencies without your staff having to re-educate ours.

One of the cornerstones of our audit practice is our determination to know your business as well as we know our own. Through years of working with clients in a myriad of business enterprises and situations, the consultants and CPAs at Rödl & Partner USA have amassed impressive experience on all components of successfully managed companies. That experience, coupled with the close knowledge of your business, means that your company likely will be the recipient of business and management consulting as a regular part of our work for you. If in providing services we see something that could be improved, we tell you. Our advice and counsel is incorporated into everything we do for you, and we pride ourselves on the constructive operational advice that usually is a by-product of our attest work on your behalf.
