The above services are an example of what might be done by a COMPLUS Professional Controller.  Not all services are appropriate in all circumstances.  There may be some other services that might be appropriate even though they are not listed above.  In a spirit of alliance with business ownership/leadership an appropriate set of tasks/duties will be defined for each client case.

 

We do not sell “auditing” or “income tax” preparation services.  We are not “independent” as would be required by Generally Accepted Auditing Standards.  There are better sources for Tax Preparation services.  Quite often a prospective client will have an established relationship with a Tax Preparer (with whom we choose not to compete).  Furthermore Tax Preparation is a specialty demanding more volume of continuing education than is justifiable for us in addition to that required for the services identified above.
