Over the decades, Clark & Horner has acquired a deep financial understanding of many industries. We have
rolled up our sleeves to give hands-on help to all kinds of privately owned businesses, ranging from
start-ups to multinational enterprises. We can help you, too.
When it comes to the success of your business, we really get it. We go far beyond taxes to offer
the unique range of services you need to succeed. Our team can handle all your business affairs – from
bookkeeping to audits, all the way to business plans, and succession planning.
Clark & Horner has professionals who are experienced in International Financial Reporting
Standards (IFRS), Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (US GAAP),
Canadian Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE), and Accounting Standards for
Not-for-Profit Organizations (ASNPO).
At Clark & Horner, we adhere to rigorous quality control policies and standards so that we can provide you
with an audit opinion that is of the highest quality. The Auditor's Report provides the highest level of
assurance to users of the financial statements. An audit may be necessary when negotiating the purchase or
sale of a business, or where management or shareholders find value in having an audit. We strive to perform
our engagements with a hassle-free approach and within your timetable. We perform a careful review of your
financial statements and analyze other business records in order to reveal important information about
your business. This enables us to offer you valuable advice about how you can improve your internal controls,
accountability procedures, and/or address any deficiencies to help your business prosper.
A review engagement provides limited assurance that the financial statements are presented fairly in
accordance with applicable standards. Reviewed financial statements are normally required by banks,
insurers or other lenders who need some assurance that the financial statements are plausible. A review
adds assurance to your financial statements at a substantially reduced cost from an audit. The financial
statements are assessed through enquiry, analysis and discussion.
Special reports are often required in contractual obligations where you need to provide some level
of assurance to a business partner, a lender, a landlord or the government. Clark & Horner can
assist you by identifying and delivering results to meet your specific need.
Over 70 countries have adopted IFRS and now Canada has too. The Canadian Accounting Standards
Board has approved the adoption of IFRS for year-ends beginning on or after January 1, 2011.
As of that date, publicly-traded companies (and certain publicly accountable enterprises)
will be required to report their financial results using IFRS.
The effects of these standards are potentially extensive on both an organization's financial
reporting and internal processes/policies. Because of this, a significant investment in time,
education and managing the change will be required to ensure a smooth and successful transition.
Clark & Horner has experienced personnel who have led IFRS diagnostic and implementation engagements
internationally. Our staff has performed analysis, assessments, implementations, reviews, and
training seminars for multi-national companies. Given our IFRS experience, we are able to assist with
the principles and rules of the process and with internal control and accountability procedures. From
understanding the nuances with impairment models, to establishing independent liaisons with your
auditors and audit committee, we bring Peace of Mind to the process.
