Financial Statements

Meisser & Seales, LLP's financial statement services comprise two levels of assurance depending on your company's needs.

  • Reviews provide limited assurance to outside interests and involve inquiries and analytical procedures that confirm financial statement matters and identify any items requiring further analysis. We perform reviews to ensure the integrity of your data.
  • Compilations are usually requested for internal purposes and are based upon information provided by a company's management. They do not offer assurance but may involve some adjustment to accounting records.

Business Valuation Services

The range of needs for valuing businesses continues to widen, and Meisser & Seales, LLP can provide in-depth analysis to help you identify and analyze the factors that drive the value of your company or one in which you have an interest.

A business valuation quantifies and substantiates your company's worth in terms of tangible and intangible assets. The valuation process is never simple. It requires a multi-dimensional examination of quantitative and qualitative aspects of your business, and an analysis of pertinent tax, financial, and industry data.
