Usually reviews are required for lender reporting primarily banks or by corporate bylaws for management purposes. Compilations can be for internal reporting and management use only or can also oftentimes meet lender requirements. JFL can provide the one you need.


Reviews provide limited assurance to outside interests and involve inquiries and analytical procedures that confirm financial statement matters and identify any items requiring further analysis.
