Audit & Financial Reporting Services 

Planning, efficiency and open communication define our firm's
approach to assurance and auditing services.


Grennan Fender Hess & Poparad, LLP provides a wide array of financial reporting including audits, reviews, compilations, and agreed upon procedures. In addition, our firm works in a variety of industries including construction and real estate, non-profit organizations, charter schools, manufacturing, retail, franchises, Department of Transportation, and condo/homeowner associations.

Professional standards allow us to offer three different levels of assurance on financial statements. Those three levels of assurance include audits, reviews, and compilations. Please contact us to help you determine which level of service best meets your needs.


An audit provides the highest level of assurance on a financial statement. Our work ensures an understanding of the organization, internal control, methodical review of selected transactions, and communications with third parties. A review provides limited assurance and is conducted primarily through analytical procedures and inquires. We provide a report, based on our findings, with our opinion about whether the financial statements are fairly stated and free of material misstatements. We operate at the highest level of integrity and objectivity to ensure compliance with ethics and independence standards. We will also proactively recommend potential improvements in internal controls and financial reporting to help improve decision making, reduce waste, tighten controls, and improve efficiencies.

We understand the annual audit or review can bring additional stress and can sometimes disrupt the normal flow of your day-to-day business. The professionals at Grennan Fender Hess & Poparad, LLP intend to make this process smooth, friendly and educational for all of the stakeholders of your business. Our approach is to thoroughly understand your company or organization and financial reporting requirements through detailed planning and open communication.


Grennan Fender Hess & Poparad, LLP also provides compilation services. We provide a report with prepared financial statements using information provided by your organization. This report provides no assurance. However, we will review the financial statements to ensure they are free from obvious errors. We are required to state in our report whether or not we are independent.

We are often requested to provide a report on specific procedures we may conduct either determined by a contract or requested by the client. In this case, we provide an “Agreed Upon Procedures Report” describing the results of our procedures.  Since is considered an attestation service and we must be independent.
