Francis & Company, established in 1980, is a full-service certified public accounting firm that serves the accounting, auditing and consulting needs of nonprofit and municipal organizations in the greater Puget Sound area. These organizations operate in a unique and challenging environment and Francis & Company recognizes the distinctive characteristics of that environment. This knowledge allows us to focus on the needs of these organizations while maintaining a commitment to quality and personal service.
Our firm meets all the requirements for auditors performing "Yellow Book" and OMB Circular A-133 audits. These include, but are not necessarily limited to, specialized Continuing Professional Education requirements for all professional staff and periodic peer reviews of the firm's policies, working papers and reports. Our most recent peer review was in July of 2016.
Our professionals bring unique expertise and experience in operations, management, technology and marketing to our engagements, in addition to the solid financial background associated with traditional certified public accounting firms. Our current staff is comprised of 10 seasoned professionals.
A key member of any not-for-profit's professional team should be a certified public accounting firm with experience in, and sensitivity to, that organization's particular environment. The accountability, visibility, and service orientation issues inherent in the operation of a not-for-profit entity require familiarity and experience on the part of any professional service provider.
Not-for-profit organizations need to be proactive in light of the dynamics and monetary constraints they face. We work with our clients in professional relationships to monitor their growth, evaluate their costs, and ultimately to help them become as efficient as they can be. We welcome this opportunity to work with your organization.
Francis & Company is a quality-oriented, client-centered, professional service firm that provides financial and management information, and the analysis necessary to increase the effectiveness, stability and growth of our clients. We urge our clients to expect value from their relationships with us.
With Francis & Company's focus on serving the auditing, consulting and accounting needs of nonprofit organizations, we are uniquely qualified to address the needs of nonprofit entities throughout the Puget Sound region. As independent auditors, we know that the annual financial audit can place a large burden on a not-for-profit organization, not only from a monetary standpoint, but also in terms of increased workloads for the accounting staff.
Our audit preparation services help minimize disruption to your organization by reducing the demand on your staff. For example, instead of pulling your accountants away from their jobs to prepare audit schedules, Francis & Company would complete these tasks. This will also help reduce the "down time" of the outside auditor, resulting in increased efficiency and a possible reduction in costs.
Francis & Company can assist you in establishing a management system that addresses your agency's unique needs and requirements. As a full-service certified public accounting firm, Francis & Company specializes in auditing, accounting and consulting for not-for-profit organizations. We have a keen understanding of your operating environment and the special challenges you face.
Francis & Company is committed to offering high-quality, personalized service to help you meet these challenges while fulfilling the primary mission of your organization.
