Business Consulting Services

Most businesses never reach their full potential for many different reasons.  McGinn & Co. can help you in the following areas:

·        Bank Financing – We have all seen the headlines on the news about how difficult bank lending has become.  The professionals at McGinn & Co. are here to help you get the financing you need in order to grow your business and take it to the next-level.

·        Budget Plan - Every business should prepare a budget but, in fact most small to medium sized businesses don’t have one at all.  Comparing budget/actual results will provide management with the areas that require immediate attention. 

·        Business Plan – A critical part of an organizations success is having a well written business plan.  These plans serve two main purposes: often times they are a requirement of obtaining bank financing and they help an organization stay focused.

·        Business Purchase or Sale – Purchasing or selling a business is a very difficult decision.  We strongly advise you to enlist our help so that you can make a well- informed decision.  There are a multitude of factors that play into these decisions and we’d like to help you sort through them all.

Financial Statement Prepration

Financial statements are often times required by a lending institution or a government agency. We can prepare the following financial statements for you:

  • Compilations

  • Reviews


Preparing financial statements of private entities based on information provided by the entity’s management.

Through compilation services, a CPA prepares monthly, quarterly, or annual financial statements. However, he or she offers no assurance as to whether material, or significant, changes are necessary for the statements to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, the cash basis, or the income tax basis of accounting. During a compilation, the data is simply arranged into conventional financial statement form. No probing is conducted beneath the surface unless the CPA becomes aware that the data provided is in error or is incomplete.

However, before agreeing to perform a compilation, a CPA will take a "common sense" look at the entity to decide whether the client needs other accounting services, such as help in adjusting the accounting records.

A compilation is sufficient for many private companies. However, if a business needs to provide some degree of assurance that its financial statements are reliable, it may be necessary to engage a CPA to perform a review or an audit.


Inquiry and analytical procedures applied to financial statements of private entities.

A private entity may engage a CPA to perform a review of its financial statements and issue a report that provides limited assurance that material changes to the financial statements are not necessary. With respect to reliability and assurance, a review falls between a compilation, which provides no assurance, and the more extensive assurance of an audit.

Before a review, the CPA may have to compile the financial statements; however, in all cases, the financial statements are management’s statements, not the CPA’s. Management must have a sufficient understanding of the financial statements to assume responsibility for them.

Two other factors differentiate a review from a compilation — the CPA must remain independent of the client during a review, and all appropriate footnotes must be included in the reviewed statements.
