  • Objective: To provide a high level of assurance that the financial statements are free of material misstatement.
  • Procedures: Extensive testing and verification of accounts, transactions, and internal controls. Includes inquiries, inspections, confirmations, analytical procedures, etc.
  • Assurance: Highest level; an opinion is expressed on the fairness of the financial statements in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework (e.g., GAAP, IFRS).
  • Report: Detailed report including an opinion on the financial statements.
  • Required When: Often required by regulators, lenders, or investors for publicly traded companies or those with significant financial obligations.

2. Review

  • Objective: To provide limited assurance that no material modifications are needed for the financial statements to conform to the applicable financial reporting framework.
  • Procedures: Primarily analytical procedures and inquiries of management. Less extensive than an audit but more than a compilation.
  • Assurance: Moderate level; a conclusion is provided that nothing came to the accountant’s attention that the financial statements are materially misstated.
  • Report: Contains a review report without a detailed opinion but with a conclusion.
  • Required When: May be required by certain lenders, investors, or other stakeholders for privately held companies.

3. Compilation

  • Objective: To present financial information in the form of financial statements without providing assurance on the accuracy or completeness.
  • Procedures: Limited to gathering, arranging, and presenting financial data supplied by management. No testing or verification.
  • Assurance: No assurance is provided on the financial statements.
  • Report: Includes a compilation report stating that no assurance is provided.
  • Required When: Useful for internal management purposes or when no external requirements for assurance exist.

Comparison Summary:

  • Assurance Level: Audit > Review > Compilation (from highest to no assurance).
  • Procedures Performed: Audit involves the most detailed procedures, followed by review, with compilation involving the least.
  • Cost & Complexity: Generally, an audit is the most expensive and complex, followed by a review, and then a compilation, which is typically the least costly and complex.
  • Applicability: The choice depends on the client’s needs, the requirements of external stakeholders, and the level of assurance desired.

Together, these services provide a range of options to meet different financial reporting needs. While audits and reviews provide varying degrees of assurance, compilations are mainly a presentation service without verification or assurance.
