One of the most valuable assets that we offer our clients in need of broker dealer audit services is our securities industry-specific knowledge and experience. We have had hands-on experience auditing all types of broker dealer financial statements dating back to 1989. This gives us direct insight into the complex regulatory environment and requirements of all types of securities broker dealers.
The SEC requires companies seek broker dealer audit services to enhance investor protection. The auditing firm must be registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).
At Ernst Wintter & Associates LLP our firm is registered with the PCAOB. However, PCAOB registration is a minimal requirement. In order to make sure that you receive the best possible services to suit your needs, you must look at what the auditing service can actually do for you. Our team of specialized CPAs provides individualized broker dealer audit services to help you navigate the increasingly complex landscape of the securities industry in an efficient and cost-effective way.
First to Know About Regulatory Changes
When the SEC and FINRA make changes, we are among the first to know. Armed with the latest information, we can offer you the most effective broker dealer audit services based on the current regulatory requirements.
Minimal Disruption to Operations
Our accountants make sure that our procedures stay completely aligned with your business model’s needs, all while minimizing the disruption to your everyday operations. We look beyond your financial statements and consider your corporate objectives and operational structure.
