Audit & Accounting

Generally, third parties have requirements for you to have an audit. At Widmer Roel, we work to make the audit process a positive experience. We take the extra step to get to know and understand your business, so that we can offer management suggestions to not only improve internal controls and safeguards, but also suggestions to improve your operations and efficiencies.

We offer several levels of financial statement assurance reporting, various engagement solutions to meet the needs of our clients, who may not need an audit.
