Our professionals recognize that in order to conduct a quality financial statement review, it is important to look beyond the accounting entries to the underlying activities and operations that give rise to them.
A review involves limited investigation with a narrower scope than an audit and is undertaken for the purpose of providing limited assurance that the management’s representations are in accordance with identified financial reporting standards.
By leveraging on the methodologies and work programs used in an audit engagement, our carefully selected audit team ensures that the review of your interim financial information will be made by staff members, managers and partners who are actively involved in the planning and execution of the review. Developing a clear understanding of your business and its environment — including internal control — is our primary concern. This allows us to perform a more comprehensive review of your financial statements.
At P&A Grant Thornton, we go the extra mile in performing review engagements. We regularly perform reviews for services offering of our clients. In line with this, we prepare comfort letters to confirm to preferred underwriters our firm’s independence when conducting reviews.
We conduct semi-annual and quarterly reviews — depending on your preferences and needs — that comply with either the Philippine Standards on Review Engagements 2400: Engagements to Review Financial Statements or the Philippine Standards on Review Engagements 2410: Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity.
