– Professional Excellence, At the Highest Level
At Cordell, Neher & Company, PLLC we are committed to excellence. To further enhance this commitment, we elected to become a member of the Private Companies Practice Section (PCPS) of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) division of CPA firms. The objective of this section is to improve the quality of services of CPA firms by establishing practice requirements for member firms.
To ensure the practice requirements are maintained, each member firm is required to have a “peer review” every three years. Since the inception of the peer review program we have had peer reviews conducted every three years with the latest peer review conducted in December 2014. In each and every peer review we have received an unqualified report with no letter of comment. This is the highest level of reporting available.
The licensing body of our profession, the Washington State Board of Accountancy, has developed a quality assurance program to evaluate the commitment of individual firms to standards of professional excellence. Our Firm has met all the standards of professional excellence without exception and none of our employees have been notified of any complaints by regulatory agencies.
