In approaching an audit engagement, Mercadien, P.C., CPAs begins with the recognition that an external auditor must fill a dual role, on one hand serving as an objective reviewer from an outside organization, and at the same time functioning as a team member working with and for the client. At Mercadien, P.C., CPAs, we believe in working closely with our client's staff on every step of our audit. As a result, our clients perceive us more as their business colleagues than as their "annual intruders." Our most appreciated role has been as close advisor and guide to our clients on a year-round basis. Since 1963, we have consistently been successful in earning our clients' respect and becoming their trusted financial counselors.
In planning our engagement, we plan with our client's management to make the audit process as rewarding to the client as possible. We believe that throughout the process it is possible for us to gain a greater insight into the operations of our clients. In doing so, we often are able to provide them with unique opportunities to either increase efficiency or increase revenues. Indeed, our audit staff is trained to attune itself to the client's organization and to respect and work around the client's routine operations.
Working with management also means planning an efficient audit that calls for the client to prepare as many schedules as possible in an effort to keep the audit cost to its very lowest. At Mercadien, P.C., Certified Public Accountants, we wish to limit our audit efforts to the work that can and should be done only by the outside auditor and not to do work that the clients can do for themselves, thereby saving money for the client.
Integral to our audit philosophy is the belief that a Mercadien, P.C., CPAs audit can be performed only by qualified, experienced staff. All of our accountants are graduates of major universities with degrees in accounting, and most are certified public accountants. It is our standard practice that a senior CPA assigned to an engagement will have at least three years of such experience. As the principal ultimately responsible for your services from Mercadien, P.C., CPAs, I will be personally involved in your audit and will ensure that it goes smoothly. We take pride in the excellent service we provide our clients, and we pledge that the same superior quality of services will be extended to our clients. Finally, in keeping with the accounting standards guidelines, we affirm that we are independent from our clients and, therefore, qualified to perform audit services for them.
We uphold the very highest standards of accounting and auditing services, and since we are a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (the “AICPA”) Division for CPA firms, we complete an annual review of operations for performance to such standards. As required by the AICPA, we undergo a peer review every three years. In 2016, we successfully completed our 13th consecutive peer review. Click here
