Let’s navigate regulatory complexity, together
Audit and assurance may seem like it’s all about compliance on the surface. A thoughtful, measured approach to technical regulations can also contribute to organizational efficiency, minimize risk, lower the chances of fraud, and improve resiliency. Because Wilke’s staff are all experienced accountants and advisors working as a team, clients get a well-rounded approach to audit and assurance that considers the impacts of other areas, like tax, advisory, and technology.
Audit and assurance services are performed under Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS) and Government Auditing Standards (GAS).
We currently provide audit and assurance services for higher education, not-for-profit organizations (including 501(c)3, foundations, churches, and labor unions), employee benefit plans, and for-profit companies in construction, real estate, financial services, professional services, and manufacturing.
Audit and Assurance services include:
Agreed Upon Procedures: Attestation services provided to nonprofits as part of grant or funding requirements, or other businesses as needed to verify account or financial information.
Audits, Reviews, and Compilations: To provide a level of reasonable assurance that financial information is presented accurately, fairly, and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations. Wilke audit professionals expertly lead audit, review, and compilation engagements from start to finish and help clients understand their role and responsibilities. We also help businesses stay in compliance with changing audit regulations and implement best practices for internal controls and accounting.
Employee Benefit Plans & ESOPs: Wilke provides audit services for 401(k) and welfare benefit plans, 403(b) plans, government and compliance audits, and other employer-sponsored plans as well as ESOPs to a range of different entities. We also assist plan sponsors and administrators with ongoing IRS and DOL compliance and can represent the plan to governmental and regulatory agencies.
Pension Planning & Selection: Offering labor unions and government employers audit and advisory services for defined benefit pension plans, including plan type, investment analysis and auditing, fiduciary compliance, and ongoing compliance.
Title IV Compliance Audits: We are a nationwide leader for auditing schools and institutions that participate in the Student Financial Aid (Title IV) Program with the U.S. Department of Education. We have provided this service to institutions throughout the U.S. as well to foreign schools that participate. We specialize in auditing and consulting for compliance with the SFA program as well as financial statement auditing and other government regulatory requirements.
Fraud and Forensic Accounting: The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners reports that fraud costs up to 5% of revenues annually for organizations. Our staff are well versed and understand the complexities of fraud as well as what actions will indicate its presence. We have performed countless forensic and fraud examinations which have resulted in recoveries of stolen funds, prosecutions, and government interventions. We can provide you the sense of wellbeing with an examination for prevention steps in your control environment. We can also provide an examination to assist in recovery and resolution.
