Public Company Financial Reporting and Compliance

TW provides the vital link in the financial reporting process between a company’s internal accounting staff and its independent auditors to effect on-time SEC reporting, a role similar to a Chief Accounting Officer at a larger public company.  These areas include:       

  • Preparation of quarterly and annual financial statements
  • Preparing Form 10-Q and 10-K filings
  • Accounting for sophisticated transactions, such as mergers & acquisitions and option valuation
  • Managing an efficient financial closing process
  • Interface with independent auditors during the review/audit process

Smaller public companies simply cannot afford to maintain staffing having the high-level expertise necessary to prepare fully GAAP/SEC compliant financial statements for SEC filings and to address sophisticated accounting issues, both of which continually increase in complexity. TW fills this role on an outsourced basis, making this required function affordable for smaller companies. In addition, as professional auditors ourselves, TW is uniquely qualified to support the independent auditors in completing their work on time because we understand auditing standards and “speak their language” in helping to anticipate and resolve audit issues which oftentimes bewilder company management. Our single-most important goal is to develop and manage an efficient reporting process which will avoid late filings, out of control professional costs, and excessive time distraction by company management.
