The Audit department at Jay & Associates performs audits for companies in a number of different industries. Each audit provides an inspection of source documents and performs the necessary steps to insure that financial statements adhere to Generally Accepted Auditing Procedures and standards set forth by industry guidelines.
We understand that the audit process can be disruptive and requires employees to sacrifice their time and knowledge. The firm takes pride in sending qualified individuals into the field to perform audit services. Due to the firm’s low turnover rates, audit clients benefit from experienced individuals performing their audit each year. This allows our clients to achieve a level of comfort with the audit process, establishes higher levels of communication, and provides consistency.
Our firm provides full-charge bookkeeping services, including general journal and subsidiary ledger maintenance, bank statement reconciliation, and receivables and payables tracking and analysis.
Business Valuation Services
The need for business valuation may be necessary for a variety of reasons. Closely held business valuations may be necessary due to retirement or sale of a business. Other reasons may include a gifting program, a buy/sell agreement, litigation, or estate purposes.
Jay & Associates is proud to have qualified individuals that are able to prepare a business valuation. The firm boasts one of five individuals in the state who passed the inaugural ABV exam. The ABV designation from the American Institute of Public Accountants requires extensive training in the techniques, theory, and fundamentals of valuation. In order to achieve the designation, you must pass a rigorous exam and annually obtain a designated amount of education in the valuation field. Based on facts, economic conditions, and industry trends, our firm can provide a valuation that is fundamentally sound.
