Introduction to Audit and Assurance Services
Today’s business environment requires many businesses to provide audited or reviewed financial reporting statements to lenders, investors, regulators, shareholders and other stakeholders.
Gregory, Sharer & Stuart has built a financial statement analysis reputation for integrity, quality and sound ethical values, providing assurance to those who rely on your financial statements for decision making. We believe that auditors must remain objective and independent, yet we recognize the need to understand your business at a deeper level in order to provide business advice that will help you achieve your business and financial reporting goals.
Our client auditing service teams in Tampa Bay are built to include industry-specific individuals, allowing them to provide value-added insight and advice. Our knowledge and understanding of your business allows us to recognize and offer solutions tailored to your business.

Commitment to Quality
Our firm is a member of the Center for Audit Quality and both the AICPA Governmental Audit Quality Center and AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center. In addition, GSS is registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB). These memberships are typically not sought by local firms and are the direct result of our commitment to providing the highest level of professional service to our clients.
A commitment to quality permeates GSS. It is part of our culture and is the foundation of all that we do. Our commitment is independently validated by outside third party inspection of our practice through peer reviews and Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) inspections.
Since our formation in 1984, we have undergone nine separate peer reviews and have not received a single comment in any of the reviews – a rare and significant achievement. Likewise, since the creation of the PCAOB as part of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, we have undergone three separate PCAOB inspections and all have concluded with no findings or comments – the most favorable outcome possible.
