About This ReportRelated ReportsTable of Contents

This report is intended to assist buyers of audit services. Audit service providers are accountants certified to review the accounting records of public and private organizations and attest to compliance with generally accepted accounting practices. Auditors are usually part of offices of certified public accountants (CPAs) and provide auditing for financial statements and advice on matters related to accounting. Auditors are expected to be entirely independent of the companies or organizations they audit. They should present an unbiased and skeptical evaluation of the audited company’s financial condition and statements for shareholders and other interested parties. This report does not include tax accounting services.
