h  Audit & Accounting

Whether it is a publicly traded company, a private business, a government body, or a not-for-profit organization, Integra International® has a member who can handle all facets of an audit engagement. No longer is there a need to go to the Big 4 to get a respected audit opinion on an engagement that requires multiple locations because of branch operations or subsidiary companies.

Integra members know each other and know that the required audit standards will be adhered to for statutory or special audits. For that rush job, local staff can be augmented by experienced professionals from other Integra offices when the need arises. Integra member audit teams provide an efficient approach to audit planning, documentation and financial statement reporting. They represent years of experience with full scope audits and reviews of private company financial statements.

Wherever required, Integra members are subject to peer review, thus ensuring that they stay up to date with all audit and reporting standards. In addition, some Integra member firms are registered with the PCAOB and subject to their stringent periodic peer review and inspection.

  • Technology
  • Manufacturing
  • Professionals
  • Hospitality
  • Education

  • Fishing
  • Retail

h  ProYou

There is no doubt that partners in accounting firms are aging and succession planning is discussed. However, steps are not always taken to implement the succession plans. This interest group is all about discussing options, plans and providing insight into how succession plans can be implemented. The group is for members of all ages that are working their way to becoming a partner in their firms. It is also for partners leading the charge at their firms to promote and encourage a career path to partner so they may understand what the younger generation is looking for from the firm.

With presenting opportunities at every Integra conference, this interest group is leading the way to making succession at Integra firms happen.
