Mark F Wille takes an educational approach to peer review. Our goal is to assist you in creating an on-going environment in your firm for Continuous Quality Improvement. We are able to help you because of our vast experience.
Mr. Wille has been performing peer reviews for over ten years. He also was an early "technical reviewer" for the AICPA where he tested the peer reviews and procedures performed by other reviewers. He is a ten-year member of the California State Auditing and Accounting Committee.
With our experience, we are able to quickly assess areas where you can streamline and upgrade your Auditing and Accounting Practice. These areas include:
Information regarding new pronouncements Creating specialized and improved checklists just for your firm Conducting staff training on Auditing and Accounting updates Assisting with on-site annual inspections tailored to your firm Inspiring positive motivation of your staff toward the importance of Auditing and Accounting standards.
We also understand the needs and desires of the small to mid-sized firm. We're aware there is always a certain tension between the time it can take to assure the quality of the work (read billable time) and the amount you can actually charge. We understand that concept and work with it every day, justlike you.
Here is what other CPA's have said about our Peer Review Services.
"Mark has been my QC advisor for ten years. He is constantly coming up with new ideas that improve my practice." Robert A. Owens (Firm performs over 400 audits annually)
"Mark's unique educational approach to peer review involves all staff in understanding and appreciating the technical aspects of quality accounting and auditing work." Brent Murdock, HMC
MERGERS & ACQUISITIONS
With the wave of consolidators and baby boomers readying for retirement, Mark assists in readying a firm for sale and then assists the firm in the sale or merger of the firm.
Many small business owners do not have experience or traiing in running a business bsed on a skill, product or service, without the benefit of even basic orientation to business planning and management. These entrepreneurs do not know how important it is to regularly monitor their business's financial condition - and even if they did, they would not know how to go about it or how to gain value from it.
Mark can guide you through this process and you'll actually look forward to monthly reports, just so you can see the results of actions you've taken to influence the outcomes.
