Opinion Audits

 

Your audit will be tailored to your credit union and performed in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Our Opinion Audits satisfy the annual audit requirements for both state and federally chartered credit unions. You will receive a comprehensive audit report together with Financial Statements and Notes to the Financial Statements, as well as recommendations to improve your credit union's operations and internal controls to safeguard credit union assets.

Supervisory Committee Audits

You will receive a comprehensive audit of your credit union's operations meeting NCUA regulations.

Minimum Procedures Audits

We recognize that annual audit fees are often an area where small credit unions are interested in reducing costs without sacrificing quality. We can perform our Minimum Procedures Audit which meets NCUA requirements for your annual audit.

Internal Audits

You will receive ongoing internal auditing of the credit union's key operations tailored to your credit union. This value-added service will provide the convenience of an internal audit department at a fraction of the cost.

Automated Clearing House Audits    ACH Brochure

NACHA requires credit unions to have an ACH Audit each year. Our firm has performed ACH Audits for more than 15 years so we have the experience necessary to perform a comprehensive and efficient audit at an affordable price.

Fraud Audits

Our office has performed numerous credit union fraud audits ranging from misappropriation of credit union funds to fictitious loan granting to mysterious cash disappearances. Discovering fraud is only the first step. We specialize in validating the fraudulent activity and presenting the loss to the credit union's fidelity bond insurance company. This allows the credit union to recover all losses from their fidelity bond carrier.

FNMA Quality Control Reviews    FNMA Brochure

We can show you how you can originate Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) compliant mortgages through a third-party to dramatically increase your loan portfolio. Our compliance experts will help you establish a FNMA Quality Assurance Program and will perform the review of those mortgages for a fraction of the cost of in-house quality control.

Information Technology Audits

Member information and privacy is and should always be a major concern of every credit union. Do you know how secure your member information is? We can provide internal and external testing of your Information Security Systems and summarize our findings in a report to your credit union.

Bank Secrecy Act Audits

The Bank Secrecy Act requires every credit union’s BSA Compliance Program to be independently reviewed year. Additionally, all employees who handle member transactions as well as all Board members are required to attend BSA training annually. Please follow the link above for more information on the Bank Secrecy Act Audit requirements and the BSA Training Program we can tailor to your credit union.

Fixed Asset Consulting

We have assisted credit unions in the review and analysis of Fixed Asset Classifications, asset lives, salvage values, and depreciation schedules. These engagements assist the credit union in accurately accounting for their fixed assets.

General Ledger Consulting

Our office is available to assist the credit union in performing general ledger account reconciliations on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or even annual basis. We are also available to prepare bank reconciliations on the credit union's corporate checking accounts on a monthly basis. Often times these services are provided in conjunction with our Fraud Audits.

Management Consulting

We will help you develop strategies to expand your business, increase your profitability, and run your credit union more efficiently utilizing today's technology.

Policy Reviews

Our human resources professional will review your credit union's personnel policies and handbooks for compliance with state and federal regulations.

Retirement Plans / Executive Compensation Plans

We will review your credit union's current retirement programs and help you establish 401(k) and/or profit sharing plans that are tailored to your credit union needs. We can assist your credit union in establishing executive defined compensation plans.
