“Helping you focus on what matters most”
Audit, Review, Compilation, Examination, and Agreed Upon Procedures for Not-For-Profits, Governmental, and For-Profits
Our audit and assurance services benefit a wide range of clients, including businesses looking to obtain or maintain financing agreements, non-profit organizations required to meet fiduciary and governmental requirements, construction and specialty trade contractors with bonding requirements, government contractors, and 401K and other retirement plans with over 100 participants.
Walters & Associates, CPAs approach provides the maximum return on your investment in the audit process through analysis of your financial statements, internal controls, and overall business.
We use a risk-based auditing approach to identify areas of potential risk that could lead to the misstatement of financial statements. The first step of our approach is to obtain an understanding of operations and the internal controls within the accounting/finance activities. Our audit programs are then tailored for each client.
At the end of the audit, we prepare a management letter that describes any internal control weaknesses, with specific recommendations for operation and efficiency improvements. You can expect timely, thorough, efficient, and cost-effective engagements, provided by a team of CPAs with relevant industry experience, and minimal disruption to your accounting and finance staff.

Walters & Associates, CPAs had its latest peer review in November 2018, and received an unqualified opinion.
Our Firm is a member of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”). The PCAOB is a private-sector, non-profit corporation, created to oversee the auditors of public companies in order to protect the interests of investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, fair, and independent audit reports. Many accounting firms choose not to become members largely because of the quality control standards imposed by the PCAOB. These standards are rigidly enforced by the PCAOB’s review process.
