With the passing of Dodd-Frank, Wall Street Reform Act the broker-dealer industry has become increasingly complex. New rules and regulations are continuously issued to combat illegal activities and regulate rogue brokers. As a result, broker-dealers have specialized needs which require an expert caliber of support. Recent legislation now requires non-public broker-dealers to use an audit firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) for their certified audit. PCAOB oversight helps ensure that audits of broker-dealers are performed properly, but thus adds a new layer of complexity to audit requirements. Most typical everyday CPA’s are no longer able to handle the level of expertise required to perform these audits. RND Resources is one of the few firms with requisite experience that can conduct these audits efficiently and at a lower cost than larger big 5 accounting firms.
When it comes to broker dealer audits, it’s important to hire experts. Dave Banerjee, CPA, an Accountancy Corp. has been registered with the PCAOB since 2004. Call us for a quote on certified annual audits.
Independence rules restrict our participation in certified audits for existing clients, however, for firms where there is a conflict of interest, we can provide a list of PCAOB auditors with demonstrated experience in certified audits of broker-dealers.
Are you concerned that you might be in violation of regulations, in spite of your best efforts to comply? More likely, you are in violation of rules without even knowing it.
RND will review your records and operations to identify potential problems before they reach a crisis state. We’ll help establish supervisory procedures, monitor control systems, review financial record keeping and net capital compliance, and train personnel to ensure continued compliance.
We’ll provide a confidential report and discuss our findings with your stakeholders to assist in developing stronger compliance and risk management policies.
We are experienced professionals and have CE programs and annual compliance meeting services available to assist your business in maintaining regulatory requirements.
