- Accounting and financial reporting the need for financial statements may vary from year-end reporting to shareholders, to applying for loans, to selling the business. We will work with you to prepare your Notice to Reader for your business
- Financial statement preparation (Notice to Reader – NTR) A Notice to Reader (NTR) or Compilation is the production of unaudited financial statements. An NTR is simply information compiled from financial data provided by the client or bookkeeper. Most small and medium-sized businesses are only required to have an NTR done annually to meet the criteria for the Canadian Income Tax Act.
NOTICE TO READER REPORT
Our team of accountants compiles the information from the financial statements provided and assembles the report into a standard financial format. This package includes the Notice to Reader Report, a balance sheet, and income statement; the possibility of notes too for financial statements. Minimal work is done to confirm the integrity of the financial statements is authentic to business activities. As the information provided is not required to be produced following GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles), users are left to trust the business owners’ honesty and record-keeping provided as accurate information.
The Notice to Reader report along with the financial statements includes:
- Data compiled received from the client or the client’s bookkeeper to assemble into financial statements
- The report clearly states the scope and limitations of the report accuracy of the data was not verified
- Caution to readers the statements may not be applicable for their use
- The individual who prepared the report includes their professional status and the accounting firm
