Internal Control Assessment

There is a direct relationship between strong internal controls and the health and success of your business.  Simply, the weaker the internal controls the more vulnerable your business is subject to theft and fraud.  Strong internal controls help safeguard your business assets, ensure reliable financial reporting, maintain regulatory compliance, and accomplish operational efficiency.  Strong internal control requires careful examination of your business’ organizational structure and operations.

Business Valuations

Business valuation is process of evaluating a business’s past, present, and potential existence with the goal of assigning an estimated economic value.  A business valuation is very subjective and far from being an exact science.  It requires an objective professional who can gather and measure relevant financial and non-financial information to properly defend and support a valuation conclusion.
