Accounting and Assurance

Clear Accurate Financial Picture

Financial Statements

At McCay Duff, our job is to present a clear and accurate picture of your financial position, allowing you to make sound financial decisions.

In addition to providing information to existing shareholders, for-profit companies can also benefit by having independently prepared financial statements in instances when they are seeking financing and/or considering merger and acquisition opportunities. In the case of non-profit organizations, in addition to clearly showing your members how the organization’s resources have been expended, having your financial statements independently prepared can also help satisfy the requirement of funders, donors and government agencies.

Financial statements provide an overview of your current financial position, as well as what took place during the year. In addition to helping you present your financial statements in a clear and concise format, our Chartered Professional Accountants are licensed to conduct audit and review engagements on your financial statements.

Assurance services from professional Firms are typically perceived to be interchangeable commodities. At McCay Duff, we believe that our commitment to a high level of client service is a distinguishing feature of the service we provide our clients.

We view the assurance engagement process as an opportunity to provide feedback on your controls and processes, helping your company or organization improve performance and accountability.

At McCay Duff we believe that success will inevitably flow from creating win-win conditions with our clients – and it is this belief that guides us in our approach to assisting clients with matters of a technical nature. We believe that providing guidance, and working with management in a collaborative fashion, will result in success for all.
