Surprise Audit Examinations

Surprise Audit Examinations

With the right accounting team, your surprise audit examination can be efficient and cost-effective.

SEC Rule 206(4)-2 under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 requires investment advisors with custody of client funds or securities to undergo an annual surprise audit examination by an independent public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB).

As a PCAOB registered firm, Assurance Dimensions has performed custody examinations for SEC-registered investment advisor clients ranging from one account to thousands of accounts under custody.  

Our fixed-fee pricing and cloud-based software have led to an intuitive, economical approach for completing surprise examinations quickly, remotely and with minimal intrusion on your operations.
