Financial statement work can take several forms, from financial statement preparation, to compilation, to financial review services and audit services. Knowing which you need, or are being required to have produced, is the beginning of the process.

Here are explanations of the areas of financial statement work from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

What is Financial Statement Review & Compilation

As part of a review service the CPA performs analytical procedures and other methods to obtain “limited assurance” on the financial statements. This is intended to provide users with a level of comfort on their accuracy.

A review is the minimum level of CPA assurance services. With reviewed financial statements, if the CPA determines there is lack of independence, they cannot perform the review engagement. The other two levels of assurance include compiled financial statements and audits.


Understanding the industry in which you operate is a requirement placed upon the CPA. This includes knowledge of the accounting principles and practices generally used in the industry.

In addition, the CPA is required to have a knowledge of you which includes the accounting practices and principles that you follow. They must have knowledge to sufficiently identify areas in the financial statements where it is likely that a material misstatement may occur.

A review is substantially less involved than an audit in that the CPA does not contemplate obtaining an understanding of your internal control.

There is no assessing of fraud risk, testing of accounting records either through inspection, observation, outside confirmation or examination of source documents. These procedures are generally used in an audit.


With reviewed financial statements, the presiding CPA issues a formal report which includes a conclusion as to whether based on the review, the CPA is aware of any material modifications that should be made to the financial statements in order for them to be in accordance with the applicable reporting framework.

A review is used as a business evolves and grows sufficiently to seek higher levels of financing. As well, it is used by the business owner for evaluation and key decision making due to the greater level of information integrity.
