A History of Shaping Futures…Through Audit and Assurance Services

Marvin and Company is a regional accounting firm that has the perfect mix of large-firm resources and small firm attention to detail that our assurance clients have experienced for decades. We pride ourselves on the special relationships we develop with our client partners and we concentrate our service practice around working in concert with them to help achieve their goals and objectives.

Audit Approach

For our firm, an audit is not just a once-per-year activity, rather an ongoing process that requires communication throughout the year. Our audit approach includes:

  • Advance planning of the audit to ensure there are no surprises
  • Detailed consideration of your internal controls and reliance thereon where possible
  • Well planned and executed fieldwork
  • Extensive quality control procedures
  • Multiple directors, managers and staff with relevant industry experience

In addition to audit services, we also offer compilation and review services. Learn more here.

Quality of Work

As a firm, we take great care to provide only the highest quality audit work for our clients. In each of our peer review reports over the last 33 years, our firm has received an unmodified report, underscoring our commitment to quality. View our most recent peer review here.

Commitment to Continuing Education

All of our CPA staff and many of our non-CPA staff are members of the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).  They are required to obtain a minimum of 40 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) each year.

Our firm and most audit staff meet the CPE and QC requirements necessary to work on engagements requiring adherence to GAGAS (Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards. All of our staff are required to obtain 24 hours of government specific CPE every two years. Also, as a member firm of the Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center of the AICPA all of our staff is required to obtain eight hours of employee benefit specific CPE every three years. 

Our professional audit staff meets these standards annually and generally exceeds them. In addition to the external training that our staff receives, we also participate in industry specific training sessions in order to optimize our efficiency on various engagements.

National and International Reach: BDO USA, LLP

While we have a strong local presence in New York State, we are also able to leverage the resources of BDO USA, LLP and the BDO network to expand our assurance services to the national level as well as globally.
