Why peer reviews?
At Kattell and Company we strive to always hold ourselves to the highest degree of excellence for our clients. In accordance with professional standards, Kattell and Company has established quality control policies and procedures to provide assurance that our accounting and auditing engagements conform to the highest standards.
Professional standards require that we undergo an external peer review at least once every 3 years.In many ways a peer review is like an audit. An independent party inspects a sample of our work and provides an opinion and, if applicable, a letter of comments.
The results of a peer review are communicated in a Peer Review Report. The peer review process is coordinated by the Florida Peer Review Committee. This committee must accept the peer review report before it can be published. The committee communicates its acceptance in a letter. Professional standards require that the peer review be made available to the public.
