Audit and Assurance Services
More Than Crunching Numbers
We may be numbers people, but our audit and assurance services go beyond the facts and figures to identify missed opportunities, manage risk and maximize performance.
Since we believe in making the most of your opportunities and time, here are a few key qualities you can expect from our team:
- Professional services delivered in a personalized manner
- Vigilant, detail-oriented accuracy and leading industry expertise
- Well-planned and coordinated delivery
- Proficiency in the use of artificial intelligence (we use MindBridge Ai)
- Efficiencies using technology including IDEA® Data Analysis Software, Smartsheet™, Sharefile™ and CaseWare
We also have extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions — working hand-in-hand with management, buyers, sellers and third-party advisors to ensure you are informed at every step of the process. Our support begins with the acquisition and carries over into sell-side due diligence. This approach helps us to keep deal-related matters at the forefront of your audit each year.
In all of our work, we take a forward-thinking approach designed to keep you prepared and minimize surprises. Above all, we value long-term client relationships that allow us to truly know and understand each other — because like we said, it’s about more than just the numbers.
We tailor our audit approach to the needs and characteristics of each client and invest time to become familiar with each client’s business and accounting systems.

Employee Benefit Plan Audit Services
LBMC audits approximately 300 employee benefit plans annually, and we are a Top 1% benefit plan auditor in the nation.

As a top 25 benefit plan auditor in the nation, we have the experience that allows us to tailor our audit approach to the needs and characteristics of each client.
Internal audit services can be used throughout a company’s operations. The primary purpose of internal audit services is to help identify and assess operational, financial and compliance risks that a company faces, and then identify and assess the internal controls in place to mitigate those risks. Internal audit services involve both process and system reviews.
Lease Accounting Services
The new lease accounting guidance presents an opportunity to proactively implement new processes and policies while simultaneously taking inventory of your company’s lease populations, in order to assess the impact on future financial reporting.
Services include data extraction, process mapping, internal controls, change management, software advisory, software readiness, financial impact modeling, and impact analysis on debt covenant calculations.
Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance Services
LBMC has extensive experience with both Section 404 of the SOX Act, the COSO Framework as well as external auditing standards. We have assisted numerous companies of various sizes and in a variety of industries with their SOX compliance requirements since the initial year of SOX compliance for accelerated filers in 2004.
System & Organization Control (SOC) Audits
Service organizations that provide key third-party outsourcing services often need to be accountable to the clients they serve. These organizations include claims processors, application service providers, benefits administrators, payroll companies, data centers, and many others. System and Organization Control Reports (SOC 1, SOC 2, SOC 3 reports) provide three new reporting vehicles developed for service organizations to respond to demands for uniform reporting and review—expanding service organizations’ ability to report on financial controls, non-financial controls and, with SOC 3, become certified trusted system service organizations.
