Financial Statement and Audit Report Preparation
In the past, auditors assisted investment managers in the financial reporting process, sometimes even preparing the draft financial statements and related footnote disclosures. However, recent SEC actions have reaffirmed that auditors must maintain their independence in both fact and appearance. As a result, regardless of past reliance, fund managers are unable to rely on their auditor in the financial statement drafting process, or for “non-audit” services as defined by the SEC.
Ultimately, it is the responsibility of management to prepare the fund’s financial statements. Investment managers and their administrators, however, may not have the specialized expertise needed to meet reporting and disclosures requirements, or perform the relevant calculations resulting in multiple rounds of revisions which may result in increased costs and delay the issuance of the audit. To address this potential gap in expertise, fund managers are encouraged to engage a qualified and objective third party CPA to guide and advise them through each step of the reporting process.
