Desmond & Ahern is aware of the pressures facing nonprofit organizations with the myriad of regulatory and reporting requirements from both the government and various funding agencies. We work with our clients to provide a thorough audit procedure and suggest changes to improve accounting controls and reporting accuracy. At Desmond & Ahern we make it our policy to communicate with our clients on a continuing basis, not just as audit or tax deadlines approach. In this way, we are able to keep our clients informed, and together we can anticipate possible problems before they occur. We find that our quarterly newsletters and informal meetings throughout the year are a valuable complement to our annual audit services.
