Is your company an SEC registrant or thinking of becoming one? If so, you have accounting options apart from the expensive national firms. The Partners and Managers at Price Kong are former “Big-4” professionals with extensive experience serving publicly traded companies in a number of industries. Let us bolster your already hard-working accounting department, and be better prepared for your next integrated audit and/or the next big Accounting Standard Update.
IPO and audit readiness:Going public is an exciting time for your organization, and the required steps can be daunting. For example, is your company audit ready? How many years will need to be audited? What’s included in the registration statement? We can answer these questions and everything else you need to know about the IPO process. In addition, this may be your first full-scope financial audit(s). Our consultants are former auditors and we know what the large firm auditors will ask for before they ask for it. And after your successful IPO, you can continue to count on us to support the annual audit process and each quarterly review.
SEC reporting:How would you rate your quarterly SEC reporting process? Our consultants have designed SEC reporting processes from scratch. We know what works best and how to avoid the bottlenecks. You will benefit from our experience as we work together to improve or even begin your SEC reporting process. We have proprietary models and tools that streamline the process by uploading the trial balance from your accounting system and allowing automated processes to take much of it from there.
SOX section 404 compliance:Most US pubic companies are required to maintain a formally documented internal control program covering the entire financial reporting process, including assessments of the effectiveness of the controls in meeting their stated objectives. Engage with Price Kong regardless of where your company is along the 404 compliance process. We can get it started for you, help with the documentation, perform management’s testing, and/or liaise with the external auditors to ensure everything is complete.
Internal audit:The benefits of a strategically and well-designed internal audit program can far outweigh the cost of its implementation and execution. Partner with Price Kong to help design efficient and effective internal audit activities, assessments of activities currently in place, and/or reporting to those charged with governance. We can help you get more out of your internal audit department. As a publicly traded company you have specific and stringent compliance and financial reporting requirements. We can help.
