Public Companies

High-level expertise, cost-effective, competitive fees.

Being a public company or a potential public company brings added complexity, challenges, and opportunities to your accounting and finance teams. The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) independence rules limit the amount of assistance that your external auditor can provide. Working with experienced professionals at PKF Mueller can help you untangle your complexity, overcome your challenges, and take advantage of the opportunities.
