What is the Notice to Reader?
Your accounting report is prepared by the software for internal purposes, with a notice to the reader explicitly stating there is no assurance. If you don’t need to provide the statement to banks, potential lenders, or investors, this is a perfect option.
What is Compilation engagement?
Suppose you are required to provide your financial statement to an external party like banks, financial institutions, or investors. In that case, we must complete a ‘Compiled Financial Statements’ according to the CPA requirement. Compiled financial statements require risk analysis, Note disclosure, and most importantly, comply with CSRS 4200.
