As a banker, it is your responsibility to lend with knowledge and confidence. To best protect your assets, first, you must understand your investment. A field exam, or objective evaluation of collateral through a disciplined process of risk assessment, can help solidify your lending practices.
KEY ASSURANCE SERVICES
EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS
Developing and maintaining employee benefit plans requires considerable time, effort and resources – after all, your employees rely on benefits to secure their futures. Incomplete or inaccurate audit reports of financial condition or operations can result in plan disqualification or significant penalties for the plan sponsors and plan fiduciaries.
Title IV Audits
As Student Financial Assistance (SFA) processing and compliance grow increasingly complex each year, the guidelines Title IV organizations must meet can quickly become confusing. Sikich is a nationwide leader in providing Title IV audits and various consulting services to private, for-profit and not-for-profit post-secondary schools and colleges, community colleges and universities.
SYSTEM AND ORGANIZATION CONTROLS (SOC) REPORTS
Whether your customers requested an independent review and verification of your internal control environment or you are considering a report for competitive reasons, our team of auditors has extensive experience and will help you to understand your reporting options.
Lease accounting standards
As organizations are now expected to understand and follow the new lease accounting standards, it’s important to comply with generally accepted accounting principles. Our team has the knowledge, tools and resources to support you through the process.
Field examination services
Field examinations identify matters of risk within banks. Our role, as your auditor, is to ensure that we identify those areas of risk and bring them to your attention. Field exams also provide knowledge that can aid in increasing the confidence you have in your clients.
