Reduce the Risk of Errors
Errors are a significant risk for any accounting firm as they can result in serious legal and professional ramifications.
CaseWare’s financial reporting solutions are linked to CaseWare Working Papers – connecting your data directly to your reports. As you populate information, the data flows to all appropriate financial reports without the need for manual transcription. Financial reports are always up-to-date and consistent with source data. When making an adjustment in Working Papers, changes immediately flow through to related reports eliminating the risk the error associated with adjustments.
Ensure Continuity Across Financial Statements
Financial statement preparation requires a significant degree of accuracy and the use of common metrics and rounding principles. However, it can be easy to make mistakes, particularly when more than one individual is involved.
Our solution provides continuity for financial statements, giving you confidence that the same calculations and metrics are being used each time you prepare a report. As all reports in Working Papers draw data from the same source, there is also continuity across all identified outputs.
Integrate Firm Standards For All Financial Reports
Every accounting firm has its own look and feel, brand style and approved formats.
CaseWare’s financial reporting solutions are highly flexible, giving you the ability to apply firm standards across all materials you develop – whether for one client or across clients. These standards can be locked-in to ensure that content creators adhere to specified requirements without the need for significant verification.
Enhance Quality While Decreasing Review Time
When producing financial statements, accounting firms typically spend a considerable amount of time conducting a quality review to make certain there are no spelling errors, and that page numbers, headers, footers and references are all consistent.
With Financials, this significant administrative task is automated, with tools that automatically update standard components of financial statements and reports to ensure consistency across all references and numbering. Rather than spending time ensuring the numbering of your notes is consistent, your team can focus on higher-value quality review activities.

Our solution works to make financial reporting simple and straightforward for accounting firms of all sizes. Financials includes a range of best in class examples and template reporting materials that you can tailor to the needs of your industry or organization so that you can provide high quality reports without significant additional work.
