With nearly one hundred municipal clients, we are one of Northern California’s best known municipal audit, consulting and accounting firms. Our municipal clients have won more Awards for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and the California Society of Municipal Finance Officers (CSMFO) than those of any other firm every year since 1992.
Our primary audit focus is on Cities, Special Districts and Joint Powers Authorities in Northern and Central California. We also perform consulting and accounting services that do not conflict with our role as auditors.
We stay current with pronouncements issued by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board and assist our clients in the preparation for and implementation of these pronouncements. Because of our focus on local governments, we also stay current with all of the economic and political issues facing our clients.
We assist our clients with financial statement audits and preparation of Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports (CAFRs) and/or Basic Financial Statements. We also perform compliance audits including Single Audits, Transportation and Development Act audits and Redevelopment Agency compliance audits.
We can also perform other services such as Special Audits or Agreed Upon Procedures where our clients dictate the scope of the work to be performed. We also prepare State Controller’s Report annual filings for over thirty Cities and Special Districts.
Not-for-Profit Organizations Experience
We prepare audited financial statements and tax returns for over thirty not-for-profit organizations in the Bay Area. Two of our Shareholders, along with a number of our professional staff, attend the Not-for-Profit Annual Conference each year and are very much in tune with the issues facing these organizations.
The financial statements we prepare not only comply with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), but these financial statements are also very easy to read, are informative, and can be used as a marketing tool for raising funds.
With our extensive experience with many different agencies of all different sizes, we are able to provide solid accounting advice to our clients.
