Financial Audits

Our team of CPAs at Mercer & Associates specializes in providing audits for commercial, government and nonprofit clients.

Accurate and efficient financial auditing is critical for most organizations. By providing credibility to our clients’ financial operations and reports, we give shareholders and stakeholders the confidence they need to evaluate performance, make decisions and build strategies. Our experienced team understands the importance of technical proficiency without disrupting the client’s daily operations.

We are also equipped and experienced to provide Yellow Book Audits.

Yellow Book audits come with specific requirements and are typically required for certain government agencies or organizations receiving government grants. They are based on the Generally Accepted Government Audit Standards and uniform guidance audits published by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).

Mercer and Associates performs an over 100 audits each year.

Fun Fact: Legend has It that the original name of these audit guidelines was “The Golden Rule of Government Auditing”, but when the actual publication came back from the printer, the cover was yellow instead of gold…and the Yellow Book was born!
