I am looking on your HomeschoolCPA web site for a list of services that you provide. Our homeschool group is wondering if you offered a service for auditing our books each year to make sure everything is in order?
Here’s the link to my services: https://homeschoolcpa.com/services/
I can offer to look over your record keeping system and offer recommendations, but I cannot (and will not) do a full audit.
The word audit has a specific meaning in accounting and it involves an in-depth look at your entire accounting operation. It is very time consuming and expensive ($3,000 and up). I don’t do audits because they require a staff of people to perform and require a review of my accounting practice by other CPAs, which would cost me at least $1,000.
Instead, I can offer my consulting services and discuss your records and system of handling your money and make recommendations. That would help your organization quite a bit, but not be a full audit. I’ve done that type of work for homeschool groups before.
