Accounting & Auditing
At BlumShapiro, we understand the importance of working side-by-side with you, tailoring our services to fit your specific needs. We bring extensive technical resources and specialized knowledge, combined with the personal attention and accessibility of our partners and managers. Communication and timely response are critical to a positive relationship with our clients. We encourage and embrace close interaction and recognize that our clear objective is to help business owners and managers reach their financial goals.
BlumShapiro audits only privately held companies, freeing us from the regulated deadlines and reporting requirements of public company audits. As a result, we do not have the time distractions of dealing with public company reporting deadlines, disclosure complexities, risk management issues and lengthy lawsuits inherent with public companies.
For more than 50 years, we have strived for continued excellence in this area by implementing new methodologies, adopting new technologies and staying abreast of current developments. We evaluate your business, observe the marketplace and industry issues, analyze your situation and design a customized plan. This uniquely positions us to deliver superior services that clients like you expect from a business advisor.
We pride ourselves on being knowledge leaders in the industries we serve. Through experience and research, our people develop deep industry insight and specialty skills bringing maximum value to client projects. This brings to you more relevant information and resources so you can make educated financial decisions.
Quality is one of BlumShapiro’s core values. Our internal Accounting and Auditing Partners Committee ensures that our commitment to quality is put into practice daily. This committee includes senior partners who meet often to review new accounting and auditing pronouncements and monitor internal processes and procedures.
Peer reviews are required by our profession's quality control and oversight program. BlumShapiro has received unqualified opinions in every review. We are a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and its Private Companies Practice Section, as well as an associate member of the Center for Audit Quality, an autonomous body affiliated with the AICPA.
