Opinion Audit Services & Consultation
Mauldin & Jenkins is committed to compliance with all audit requirements and standards, and we emphasize providing audit services that add value for our clients. Audit standards require auditors to be engaged by and report directly to the Board of Directors and/or Audit Committee. We enhance the value of the audit by maintaining an open line of communication with management, the Board and the Audit Committee for key accounting and auditing issues. Our annual audit includes an allocation of advisory time for management, the Audit Committee or the Board. This allows our professionals to consult on questions concerning the audit without added costs. Our audits are further enhanced by:
- Partner Accessibility – Direct partner involvement in the field to supervise qualified staff and consult with management during the audit process.
- Audit Efficiency – Annual internal training sessions are designed specifically for the financial institution team to ensure that the individuals who work on your audit are experts and as a result, are efficient and effective.
