Review & Compilation Services

FarisCPA Logo

Many companies provide their financial statements, along with a CPA’s report, to lenders, investors, suppliers and customers. These stakeholders may gain different levels of assurance based on the type of financial statement provided.

A Review consultation provides stakeholders with limited assurance that no material modifications need to be made to the financial statements in order to be in conformity with the financial reporting framework.

A Compilation provides stakeholders with a general understanding of your business, the accounting principles used, and the financial reporting systems present. It also presents your financial information in the appropriate, accepted format.

The tasks require diligence and experience. Faris CPA’s superior corporate tax accountant provides thorough business tax services and innovative solutions that are just right for you and your business.

What is the difference between a compilation and a review?
A compilation is a basic summary of your company’s financial statements written by a CPA using your company’s data. On the other hand, in a review engagement, the auditor conducts analytical procedures and makes inquiries to ascertain whether the financial statements’ information is correct.
Is a compilation an attestation service?
Yes, a compilation is an attestation service because a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) should conclude the reliability of a company’s financial statement to produce the document. This scenario is usually applicable to private companies.
Is a compilation an assurance service?
No, a compilation is not an assurance service because it doesn’t provide any assurance on an organization’s financial statements. There are no testing or analytical procedures performed during a compilation.


“We really needed an accountant who could help us with complex CRA tax audit because frankly speaking, we were in a mess kind of a situation. Someone referred us to Sam and his team, we contacted them and within short time, they constructed a systematic approach to tackle the issues. Since then, Sam has been preforming the review of our financial statements with no issue. He helped us immensely and that’s why I’d definitely recommend Sam Faris and his team of fariscpa.com.”
