The audit department at Verdeja, De Armas & Trujillo, LLC adheres to the firm’s simple philosophy of “Know Your Client”. The success of our auditing service has been in understanding the operations of the client, whether a nonprofit, governmental, or for-profit organization. The firm’s audit practice has been subject to the AICPA’s mandatory Peer Review every 3 years and has received unqualified (clean) opinions on all occasions.
The firm also provides other assurance services such as compliance auditing, reviews, and compilations. We believe that communication between the client and the auditor is the most important part of any audit. Accordingly, at the inception of the audit and during the audit, our partners meet with the client to discuss all pertinent matters. At the completion of the audit, the partner in charge of the audit will make a presentation to the Board of Directors or Owners to explain the results. Our goal is to inform you of our findings and improve your operations.
All of our audits undergo several stages:
During the planning phase we have an opportunity to perform a risk assessment that may include identifying the following risks:
- Strategic Risk
- Operational Risk
- Compliance Risk
- Fraud Risk
- Financial Statement Risk
- Market Risk
- Credit Risk
Verdeja, De Armas & Trujillo, LLC has always been committed to making practical and relevant presentations to management or the Board of Directors of an organization. We realized that some management or Board members may not necessarily be trained in accounting or finance. Therefore, we have stressed the importance of making the information understandable to the entirety of the audience.
