Audit, Review & Compilation Engagement
Because certified public accountants are recognized and respected by the financial community for their regulated consistency in financial reporting, the financial community often requires businesses to present their financial position and results from operations (financial statements) accompanied by an independent report letter issued by a certified public accountant. The three most common report letters relate to audit, review and compilation engagements. These report letters cannot be issued by non-certified public accountants. While banks and other lending institutions typically require a report letter to accompany financial statements as a condition of lending, the insurance industry also requires a report letter with financial statements as a condition of issuing an insurance bond for construction industry businesses.
