Best Practice Program
Quality and Practice Review Program
Public Practice Quality Assurance
For Accounting Practices preparing for a quality review
This is a streamlined quality assurance package designed to assist and position your practice in preparation for a quality review. We’ll spend about 90 minutes interviewing you, gathering all necessary information, and then developing your complying APES 320, ASQM1 and APES 325 manuals.
For accounting practices looking to improve their overall QA system and prepare for a quality review
The deluxe package is the complete solution that most of our clients choose. It involves an on-site, in-depth review of files and your existing quality control system. We provide feedback in-line with industry standards and the expectations of your accounting body, helping you improve your quality standards and quality system to achieve best practice.
Post- review Package
For accounting practices that have already been reviewed and need help
This quality assurance solution is for accounting practices that need help resolving issues encountered in a quality review. We will help you resolve these issues, advise on best practices, and improve your overall quality control system.
For accounting firms looking for a regular quality practice consultant
We will act as your external quality control manager and consultant. We’ll establish effective quality assurance guidelines, regularly review your files, and maintain your practice’s compliance with APES Board requirements and those of professional bodies. This specialised service saves practices from hiring a full-time or part-time employee to oversee quality systems. We provide this service on a contract basis.
For Accountants looking to buy or sell a practice
Whether you plan to buy or sell an accounting firm, we can help you assess the practice and ensure that it is compliant with current quality standards. This provides buyers with helpful information for their purchasing decision and allows sellers to sell their firm at a higher price.
Please contact us if what you’re looking for doesn’t fit into any of our packages. We’d be happy to put together a package that meets your needs exactly.
