Our firm has been a member of the AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center (EBPAQC) since its inception in 2004. The EBPAQC requires each member to implement internal and quality controls to improve the efficiency in which employee benefit audits are performed. Best practices are derived from the membership base and will allow us to deliver a higher quality audit report. We are proud of our acceptance into the EBPAQC and are committed to performing quality audits and delivering quality products.
All of our professionals are expert with the continuous challenges imposed by the most recent pronouncements of the Financial Accounting Standards Board, the Internal Revenue Service and ERISA. While many firms market this knowledge and expertise, we deliver it. People are the most important resource of any professional services firm - we have the best people of any firm in the marketplace because:
The Stowe & Degon philosophy in serving you is simple; we will provide you with the best professional services available, at a competitive price, while maximizing the value of every dollar you spend. The key to minimizing fees while maximizing services is careful coordination with your management team, particularly with respect to the scope of services. High-level partner involvement in advance of intensive fieldwork enables us to understand audit and business issues prior to committing significant resources.
- The majority of our professionals have worked in an international accounting firm setting allowing them to work at a much higher technical level which, in turn, results in an efficient and productive audit.
- Our employee benefit plan audit team consists of six professionals that have extensive formal training in this area of our business and each professional works on 6 - 10 employee benefit plan audits each year. We do not use inexperienced staff to learn this specialized area on your time. We are efficient and cost effective.
- We provide high level, collaborative partner involvement on all engagements. Issues are dealt with directly and timely in a thoughtful, productive manner without the bureaucracy of an international firm.
Employee benefit plan audits are a specilized area of our business that we invest time and expertise in to distinguish ourselves as "auditors of choice".
We are creative thinkers who grasp the big picture, helping you initiate and accelerate productive change.
