Notices and Disclosures
Our Position on Objectivity
Through the years our service offerings have expanded from those of a typical accounting firm. Because the current focus on corporate governance has transformed the landscape in which accounting firms operate, we work to keep abreast of these changes and advise clients on issues relating to objectivity. We frequently service clients in the full capacity, providing tax, audit, and consulting services, but also managed partial projects where governance has proscribed impartiality or our client wishes to have separate service providers.
Our Position on Outsourcing
In order to protect your privacy, our firm does not outsource any of its accounting work, whether local, regional, or of international basis. This ensures that your accounts are worked on by the professionals appointed to your engagement and that the full integrity of the issues impacting your organization is maintained. Permitted disclosures of nonpublic information obtained in the course of our practice may include, for instance, providing information to, in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need that information to assist us in providing services to you.
