Financial Statement Audit
Lewis has ranked among Chicago’s elite financial auditing companies for decades. We provide expert financial statement audits to small businesses, non-profits, and corporations of all sizes.
Financial Statement Review
Not everyone needs a full-scale audit. Sometimes a financial statement review can provide all the information required at a much lower cost and we offer these services as well.
Financial Statement Compilation
Financial statement compilations offer less assurance than a review. Often, all you will need is help to prepare statements for presentation, and we can provide you with excellent service at attractive rates.
Perhaps you have very specific needs outside the scope of a full financial statement. We can help with agreed-upon audit services in whatever area you require, from simple contracts to regulation compliance to testing accounting software.
At Lewis.cpa, we provide companies with peace of mind through internal audit services. Understanding the full scope of your business’ finances, internal controls, and risks can help you maximize efficiency – and profits.

Our Business Audit Process
Our team has business auditing down to a science. And our step-by-step process will keep you up-to-date and informed all along the way.
Our staff will meet with your management, study your organization, come up with goals and objectives, and draw up a framework. Then we’ll provide you with a memo of the scope of the project so that you understand all aspects.
Fieldwork puts into practice the accounting and auditing you requested. We’ll thoroughly review your books, talk to key players, conduct surveys, and analyze all financial aspects of your business. This can be done remotely or onsite.
Once fieldwork concludes we’ll review our findings, giving you details and insights into your company’s finances. We’ll draft an initial report – and then go over it thoroughly with management. Again, locally or via video conferencing.
The final report represents the last step of the process. This is the fully-fledged audit or financial statement that was agreed upon. When we’re done, you’ll have a deep understanding of your company’s financial standing.
Business Audit & Assurance FAQs
How much do auditing services cost?
Audits and financial statements vary widely in price, depending upon their size and scope. A small company may take less time and cost relatively less, whereas a large corporation can take months and be far more expensive. We’ll be straight with you right from the beginning.
Can a non-CPA prepare financial statements?
Want to do your own books? The law allows non-CPAs to compile financial statements but not to officially prepare them. And would you really want to? Your numbers are critical to the success of your business. Why risk putting them in the hands of an amateur? With our team, your finances are in the best hands possible.
