Our professional services include:

Compilation, Review and Audit Services

Putman & Hancock provides financial statement services for numerous businesses and governmental entities. All work is performed in accordance with standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). As members of the AICPA and Tennessee Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA), we participate in a peer review process whereby another independent Certified Public Accountant periodically reviews our Accounting and Auditing practice to verify that our office complies with those standards. Financial statements are accompanied by either a compilation, review or audit report.
