The public accounting profession has undergone a transformation over the past few years and more changes are coming. With the revised review standards, a new auditor’s report, updated auditing standards and ever-changing accounting standards, nothing is ever static. It can be a challenge to keep up and we are here to help you navigate through it all.

About the Industry
The public accounting profession has undergone significant change over the past number of years – the industry continues to be dynamic as more changes are yet to come.

The Canadian accounting profession made history in fiscal 2015 with the creation of a single national Chartered Professional Accounting body representing Canada’s 210,000 professional accountants. Being the national body for Canada’s only business and accounting designation—and one of the largest accounting bodies in the world—is making a difference. National unification has helped CPA Canada emphasize the value of the CPA designation.

The message is clear: CPAs are smart professionals you can trust to meet your business and financial needs. The current brand campaign for CPAs is “Navigating Change” which is very relevant is today’s market. This campaign marks a new creative direction for the brand campaign, featuring CPAs at the centre of the rapidly changing business landscape. As the profession continues to evolve, this campaign focuses on CPAs’ ability to leverage their expertise and ethical fortitude to navigate through disruptive change by anticipating the unexpected, making sense of complexity and analyzing data to make business decisions that drive success.

About the Company
Recognizing there was a gap in the market for someone to provide consulting and advisory services to small to mid-sized firms, ASK KSA Consulting Inc. was formed. Until this time, there has been no independent advisor to provide these firms the support they need.

For many firms and practitioners, it can be difficult to keep up-to-date and remain onside with all requirements. It is not possible to be an expert in every area and the ability to reach out to an advisor can make a difference. Working with an independent advisor can help you to strengthen your position as we deliver professional development courses, consultation and advice, practice inspection support, peer review and monitoring. There may be times where an unbiased viewpoint or a second set of eyes is needed. We provide the guidance and consultation services you have been looking for.

ASK KSA Consulting Inc. has developed a solid and proven approach to file reviews and monitoring to meet requirements as well as improve efficiencies. A core principle of efficient and effective assurance engagements is building quality at the source and continuing this into execution and completion stages of the engagement. Our integrated methodology helps you identify gaps as well as efficiency opportunities in your engagements.

It is critical to be focused on doing the right work, at the right time allowing you to spend more time with your clients, meeting their needs and delivering value to them. We can help you do this.
