Financial Statement Audits | Compilations | Cincinnati Audit Firm

Three Levels of Assurance, One Name to Know

When a lender or potential investor asks for your reviewed financial statements, it’s an opportunity you can’t afford to waste. That line of credit or investment could buy so much — more office space, upgraded equipment, or a third shift to beef up production.

But who can ensure the quality and level of detail that opens the door to funds?

The assurance team at Barnes Dennig.

The right report for your purpose


An audit — the highest level of assurance — provides a reasonable basis for expressing an opinion about a company’s financial statements taken as a whole. Your finished report will assert that an audit was performed in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and that your financial statements fairly represent your financial position and results of your operations.

As our professionals prepare your audit, they’ll gain an in-depth knowledge of your business that can make them important allies in your company’s ongoing success.

A review provides more limited level of assurance. It states that, after inquiry and analytical procedures, the CPA didn’t find that your financial statements needed material modifications to conform to GAAP standards.


For a compilation, the CPA puts your company’s data into a financial statement that meets accounting standards. There is no guarantee the numbers are accurate. But for smaller private companies, this level of assurance may be sufficient to provide the peace of mind your investor or potential customer needs.
