At ZD, our professionals use extensive expertise and state-of-the-art accounting software to facilitate real time documentation designed to complete our services as efficiently as possible. We offer the following accounting and assurance services:
Audited financial statements provide the user with the auditors’ opinion that the financial statements are presented fairly, in all material respects, in conformity with the applicable financial reporting framework.
Reviewed financial statements provide the user with comfort that, based on their review, the accountant is not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the financial statements for the statements to be in conformity with the applicable financial reporting framework.
Compiled financial statements represent the most basic level of service accountants provide with respect to financial statements. In a compilation engagement, the accountant assists management in presenting financial information in the form of financial statements without undertaking to obtain or provide any assurance that there are no material modifications that should be made to the financial statements.
An agreed-upon procedures engagement is one in which an accountant is engaged by a client to perform specific procedures and report findings. The accountant does not perform an examination or provide an opinion. Rather, the accountant reports only procedures and findings.
