Audit & Attestation Services

Depending on your company's needs, R.J. Augustine brings you three levels of financial statement assurance – Audit, Review and Compilation.

When third parties require an audit for assurance, we examine your financial statements in accordance with accepted auditing standards. We identify internal controls and test the information before documenting our opinion as to whether the statements are fairly presented. We are your advocate, NOT your adversary.

Financial Statement Audit

Audits offer the highest level of assurance to third parties, and include in-depth examination and confirmation of your account balances, inventories, and selected transactions. We’ll remove errors and confirm that your information is valid and reliable.

Financial Statement Review

Reviews ensure the integrity of your data and provide limited assurance to outside interests. Through inquiries and analytical procedures we confirm financial statement matters and identify any items requiring further analysis.

Financial Statement Compilation

Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes and are based upon information provided by your company's management. They do not offer assurance, but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.

Financial Planning

Without a concrete and transparent financial plan in place, most successful individuals will not achieve their maximum potential over the course of a lifetime. This is why generally our initial work together begins in the financial planning arena. We’ve seen the critical impact of our approach on the lives and families of our clients.

The comprehensive analysis we take you through requires mutual commitment, open introspection, and a willingness to review your situation from a full disclosure perspective. Working with our experienced and multi-faceted team, you’ll quickly gain new insight on your financial life using real numbers and visual representations of your progress towards your goals.

The experience is both enlightening and empowering. Most conclude that our practical, in-depth analysis reinforces some of their personal assumptions, but also points out that there is much work left to be done. After this initial stage of our work, you’ll see systemic change begin to take hold.

We provide a full range of planning services, customizable to meet your specific needs: Financial Planning, Estate Planning, Investment Planning, Retirement Planning, Business Owner Planning, Charitable Planning and Life Goals Planning.

  • Our services in these areas include, but are not limited to:
  • In-depth financial analysis of current situation

  • Creation of realistic timeline and quantification of success
  • Team analysis and explanation of opportunities
