Compilation of Financial Statements
Compilation Engagement Reports (Formerly Notice to Reader Financial Statements)
At Maroof HS CPA Professional Corporation, we perform Compilation of Financial Statements engagements.
Often these statements are known as Notice-to-Reader Financial Statements in Canada. However, effective December 14, 2021, CSRS 4200 now replaces Sec 9200 that previously dealt with Notice to Reader Financial Statements. The CPA firms now issue Compilation Engagement Report instead of Notice to Reader. This is a major change to standardize the practice of issuing financial statements across the industry by establishing clearer standards.
We usually prepare these financial statements along with corporate tax returns by taking them up as a compilation engagement. In certain situations, clients need financial statements either for internal management use or as requested by third parties. Compiled financial statements are prepared as per the applicable standards (CSRS 4200).
We prepare financial statements for businesses in both Canada and the United States. In Canada, we can issue financial statements in the provinces of Ontario and Alberta. For the United States, Compilation reports are issued by the individual U.S. CPA (not the firm) and you must let us know the state and the purpose to determine the rules related to practice privilege.
