You can count on Thomas Howell Ferguson P.A. CPAs to help improve the quality and efficiency of your audit and accounting practice through your annual Peer Review.

Peer reviews are structured to maintain and improve the quality of the accounting, auditing, and attestation services performed by certified public accounting firms. A peer review analyzes the CPA firm’s quality control policies and procedures to assess compliance with existing professional standards. A peer review is required every three years to maintain membership in the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). It provides a history of any attestation reports issued by that member/firm.  Some state jurisdictions require the peer reviews to be completed regardless of an AICPA membership.

The selection of a firm to perform your peer review is an important decision.  The cost of a properly completed peer review is an investment to the future success of your firm.  A successful peer review depends greatly on a firm’s commitment to quality and compliance with professional standards. THF approaches the issues you face with the goal of bringing value to the process.
