Financial Statement Auditing
A thorough audit of the entity's financial statements is a must, not only legally, but also financially. It is the best tool for measuring your enterprise's performance. McGovern & Greene 's staff has extensive audit experience and use the latest technological tools to enhance our services.
It is difficult to find people with the right combination of technical and interpersonal skills to fill these specialized roles, especially in smaller enterprises. As well, too often inter-tribal politics can interfere with the process. Our firm can help by either performing the internal audit function directly, or working with your existing Internal Audit Department to give them the tools they need to succeed.
The biggest risk to your operations is from within. Casinos are vulnerable to the same schemes as any other business such as kickbacks, payroll scams, collusion, etc., but also face the additional risk posed by large quantities of cash. Our investigators have decades of experience in determining whether fraud has occurred and if so, how it can be prevented from happening again.
