Many governments are required to prepare financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and some entities report externally on a cash-basis (OCBOA or regulatory). Our experience and resources allow us to transform what would otherwise be a cumbersome endeavor into an organized and efficient process. J&G has vast knowledge in the field of governmental accounting and strong relationships with State and local government departments and public officials, allowing us to obtain the data required for accurate financial reporting without disruption to our clients’ daily routines. Our expertise in the field of governmental accounting is second to no firm in the State of Ohio.
Generally, our clients desire a full, comprehensive compilation with limited involvement on behalf of the client’s staff, while others desire consulting services in which J&G will assist with “in-house” preparation by the client. Either way, J&G is dedicated to working with our clients to ensure complete satisfaction with our services.
The partners and staff of J&G have performed over 5,500 GAAP-conversions for city, county, and school district clients since our inception. Our financial statement compilation process results in complete documentation and reporting of issues and facilitates the audit process. J&G has compiled over 520 Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports, all of which have received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association and/or the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials International.
