Audit, Reviews & Compilations
Never Fear the Financial Statement Audit!
A well-prepared set of financial statements can get you a mortgage for your facility, a solid offer for your business, but more importantly, goodwill and a thumbs up from the Internal Revenue Service. Professional financial statement preparation and auditing contributes to great business success.
Certified Public Accountant Larry Turner started his career four decades ago preparing financial statements and audits for large corporations to keep them out of trouble with the IRS, SEC and lenders. He has offered financial statement preparation in Gilbert, Phoenix, Honolulu, Detroit and more. While of course there’s a science to it, decades of experience have taught Larry the art of communicating meaningful and useful information to those who “need to know” the best tax and financial information.
Larry stays current with the ever-changing tax laws and standards so that all items are always stated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Since starting his career in 1973, Larry has witnessed just which items catch the attention of the IRS or deter a lender or potential buyer.

In addition to providing clear information to outside entities, professionally-prepared financial statements help business owners and management make clear-headed decisions.

A solid grasp on earnings projections for the coming years also brings peace of mind and confidence about business health. Imagine how much more you can get done with your worries put aside!
