Peer Review

Quality is the cornerstone of the accounting profession. Individuals, companies and others rely on accountants to conduct the highest quality service to ensure the most accurate reports and financial information. For this reason, the AICPA requires Certified Public Accounting firms offering audit and attestation services to undergo an in-depth peer review every three years. Essentially, this review is designed to ensure the highest quality standards are being followed in all phases of audit delivery. The result of the peer review process is reassurance to the firm’s existing and potential clients that the work produced by the firm meets or exceeds established AICPA standards.

JLK Rosenberger works with a number of CPA and accounting firms across California providing peer review services. Qualified peer reviewers have also teamed up with JLK Rosenberger enabling them to perform peer reviews of CPA firms serving insurance entities. This includes emerging, growth focused and established firms of various ages. Our process focuses only on reviewing the essential information and documentation with an eye on meeting established deadlines. If issues or inconsistencies are uncovered, we quickly address it with members of management to seek clarification.
