Beck & Company CPA’s Success Stories
Unfortunately the new Controller that Higher Achievement hired did not stay long, and left unexpectedly right before the A-133 audit. “Our organization was going through a transitional period,” reflects Lynsey Jeffries, National Chief Executive Officer for Higher Achievement. “In addition to experiencing multiple staff changes, we were following a difficult year where we experienced a decline in donations. It was critical that we keep our finances under control and have a clean audit.” Could Beck & Company CPAs deliver the desired results?
As a smaller nonprofit organization, Reach for College wanted to enable all of their staff members to focus on their cause, so they hired an outsourced firm to handle their accounting functions. However, after a short time they realized that they were neither getting the service, nor the support they desired. When it came time for RFC’s annual audit, their accounting firm declined to perform it on the basis that RFC was too small of an organization. This led them to look elsewhere for auditing services and by a stroke of luck they received a call from Beck & Company Certified Public Accountants and Business Advisors. Kathy Beck, CPA, CITP, and Principal for Beck & Company CPA’s recalls, “After interviewing several firms, Reach for College hired us to perform the audit. Unfortunately throughout this process, we were dismayed to find a lack of good financial information from the previous firm.”
