Assurance Services

Integrity You Can Take to the Bank

You trust your CFO/controller to keep your company’s finances in order. But lenders and funders want a higher level of validation. Before banks renew your credit line or funders approve a grant, they require verification that your financial statements are accurate.

The solution? Hire a financial statement “referee” — an objective, independent financial expert known for fairness and rigor.

Working with Barnes Dennig ensures a higher level of financial reporting. And that creates the stronger, more secure lending and funding relationships you want — and gives you the leverage to build your business and further your mission.

Clearing the way to “yes”

First impressions count when you’re making your case to banks and others who need your financial statements. And the Barnes Dennig name says “quality” before anyone speaks a word.

Here’s why:

We’re recognized leaders in auditing and assurance

Our assurance reporting has earned us stellar peer reviews and a clean inspection from the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). We’re members of the AICPA’s Governmental Auditing Quality Center. And in 2018, for the ninth reporting period in a row (covering 27 years), Barnes Dennig received the highest possible rating from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Barnes Dennig Director and Assurance practice leader Tom Groskopf is a nationally recognized authority on audit and accounting. He’s a founding member of the Private Company Council, which works with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). Tom provides assurance and auditing (A&A) training to other CPA firms across the U.S., and he’s been honored by Accounting Today as one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting.

Tom also serves as the Technical Director of the AICPA’s Center for Plain English Accounting (CPEA) — the national Accounting & Auditing resource center for local and regional firms. It provides knowledge through publications, alerts, and webinars on accounting, auditing, and quality control standards.

We train to be the best

To enhance their skill set, Barnes Dennig assurance professionals complete Technical Development and ProPel Leadership Development programs.

We see beyond the numbers

Assurance is your main concern right now. But after the bank says “yes,” and as you get to know us, you’ll find Barnes Dennig is a very different kind of CPA firm.

Where you might see just numbers, we see opportunities for your success. We’ll show you what we see, then begin finding creative ways to leverage it. From taxes to accounting and beyond, our innovative insights can transform your business in ways you never imagined.

It all begins with the relationship we build with you over time. That’s an asset whose value can’t be quantified. Yet it’s what many of our clients value most about us.
