Our audit partners and managers have served at international CPA firms leading engagements for NYSE and NASD companies. We deal with the SEC staff frequently in connection with client filings and on special communications. Additionally, our audit partners and managers have served as subject matter advisors to accelerated filer companies seeking to comply with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“SOX”).

As a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and a firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”), we strive to give our clients the highest quality service and valuable recommendations. Our ongoing participation in these organizations helps ensure high-quality service and provides us with a system of independent and self-regulation – including tri-annual inspections and peer reviews of our audit/accounting practice and the related quality control system – and a forum to share our views and experiences on professional matters and technical standards.

We have access to sophisticated research tools on the latest accounting and SEC developments.

In contrast to national firms, the Squar Milner partners consult and make decisions on complex accounting and financial reporting issues locally.

In October 2014, the PCAOB completed their third inspection of our public audit practice and the Firm’s related quality control system. In 2012, 2009 and 2006, we received clean “no comments” reports, the best result an accounting firm can achieve.

Compliance with SEC Reporting

We provide all the services necessary to ensure you remain in compliance with SEC reporting requirements such as reviewed Form 10-Qs, annual audited financial statements in Form 10-K, and current reporting requirements such as major acquisitions or dispositions of assets reported in Form 8-K. Our staff and partners regularly consult with the SEC on financial reporting matters, and we take pride in remaining current on all new SEC reporting rules and requirements. Complete and accurate compliance ensures that you can obtain timely cost effective registration statements after SEC review and comments.

Market Maker
Contacts

For smaller publicly held companies such as those quoted on the Over-The-Counter (“OTC”) Bulletin Board or traded on the Small Cap Nasdaq, one of the challenges is finding reputable market makers in the company’s stock to help generate sufficient trading volume. Some of our clients are quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board and consequently, we have developed a network of market maker contacts to assist you.

Going Public and Registration Statements

We can assist you in going public by filing a registration statement such as an IPO, Form 10, or a public shell reverse merger. We can also help you raise additional capital through public offerings or the registration of stock previously issued in exempt transactions.
