FHA mortgage company financial audits

Mortgage companies offering FHA financing are required to undergo annual financial audits and meet established equity and liquidity standards to maintain FHA certifications depending upon the FHA program that they offer.

 

While the industry has been in a state of change, the requirement appears to be shifted from FHA and will be required by individual banks. Regardless of the outcome, we have experience in helping mortgage companies maintain their FHA licensing requirements.

 

Rob Butler is an FHA-approved CPA and is authorized to issue opinions on all FHA financial audits.

Internal control and internal auditing

Reviews and compilations

Perhaps your organization does not need a financial audit but would benefit from an assurance of the legitimacy of the financial statements. A review is less in scope than an audit but still has testing requirements. This can provide some level of credibility to the reader of the statements as to the statement’s accuracy.

 

Compilations provide no assurance; however, they can be useful for organizations who may have strong internal controls surrounding accounting processes and want to see their financials prepared by a CPA Firm.

Sloppy accounting practices and questionable controls within an organization can be business-killing traps which can result in financial ruin. Reducing fraud risk is what one first thinks of when thinking of internal controls, but it goes much deeper than just this.

 

Ineffective controls can expose your organization to legal problems that can reverberate for years to come. Large organizations often have their own internal control auditing staff. Small to mid-size companies do not have this luxury. However, the need is still just as important. Let our firm help you in this all important area.
