Compilation Service

A financial statement compilation service is a form of non-assurance service that a professional accountant in public practice can provide you with. This service entails the preparation and presentation of the financial report of your company by the accountant.

A compilation specialist uses their accounting experience, rather than audit experience, to collect, classify, and summarize financial information in the form of a complete set of financial statements. This usually entails reducing detailed data to a manageable and understandable form without the need to test management assertions underlying that information. However, users of the aggregated financial information derive some benefits as a result of the accountant’s participation because this has been carried out with professional competence and due diligence.

Article 27 of the UAE Commercial Companies Law, the Federal Law No 2 of 2015 (Accounts of the Company) that requires the preparation of the financial statements under IFRS.

[ISRS 4410.6] suggests that, ” Since a compilation engagement is not an assurance engagement, a compilation engagement does not require the practitioner to verify the accuracy or completeness of the information provided by management for the compilation, or otherwise to gather evidence to express an audit opinion or a review conclusion on the preparation of the financial information.” Therefore, any findings we arrive at will not be enough for us to provide any level of assurance.

As the answer to question 2 suggests, we cannot obtain sufficient appropriate evidence to ensure that the financial data you provide us with is correct. However, this does not mean we will be any less professional in providing our service. Our accountants are competent enough to compile your financial statements using the information you provide us with in a sufficient way.

According to the R601.5 paragraph of the International Code of Ethics for Professional Accountants, “A firm or a network firm shall not provide to an audit client that is not a public interest entity accounting and bookkeeping services including preparing financial statements on which the firm will express an opinion or financial information which forms the basis of such financial statements…” unless certain strict conditions are met. Also, the 601.5 A1 paragraph, includes some exceptions under which we might be able to provide you with an audit report service, this is however a matter of discussion. Give us a call so we can discuss your situation.
