Personalized & Professional Service

Now more than ever, SEC-registered companies have greater risk and more challenging obstacles to overcome if they want to continue climbing their way to the top.

In 2002, the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act was passed, requiring companies to focus more attention on internal controls. Companies now have extensive reporting and disclosure requirements pertaining to these controls. But many don’t have the staff or expertise to do the legwork. And the law prohibits external auditors of SEC-registered companies from providing consultation or assistance in these areas, requiring companies to seek “second source providers.”

That’s where we can help.

We have grown to become one of the leading second source providers in Northeast Ohio, serving publicly-held and pre-emergent companies. We offer a wide range of non-attest services that comprise accounting, tax and advisory, as well as attest services.
