The Number 1 Reason a CPA Reviewed Financial Statement Can Benefit a Contractor

Author, Matt Gaynor, Director of Surety Bonding, Rancho Mesa Insurance Services, Inc.

One of the key documents required when we are assembling the Bonding Programs for our construction clients is a fiscal year-end financial statement prepared by an outside Certified Public Accountant (CPA).  Although we monitor internal financial information from our contractors throughout the year, at the fiscal year-end (usually 12/31), the bond company will require that the statement come from a third party CPA.  That way, they have some certainty that the information has been prepared by an independent financial source that has a background in working on contractor financial statements.
