Withum’s Peer Review Services team offers expertise and diversified experience to help firms through the peer review process.

AICPA member firms are required to undergo a mandatory peer review every three years. As a result, peer reviews are front and center in maintaining quality control and are an essential tool for your practice growth. It is imperative to choose a qualified peer review accounting firm that adds value to your practice by understanding the importance of the process and providing insight into what the AICPA looks for in a practice.

Withum’s team of qualified peer review auditing professionals routinely conducts reviews on both large and small accounting practices. Our team takes a timely, proactive approach to assessing the firm’s capabilities and provides suggestions for practice improvements. Our team members have a wide range of industry and specialized experience, including:

  1. Employee Benefit Plan Audits
  2. Government Auditing Standards (Yellow Book), including Single Audits (previously known as OMB Circular A-133 Audit)
  3. System and Organization Controls (SOC) Engagements
  4. Diversified industry experience covering 17 industries and sectors
