    Benefits of a Recovery Audit

    What Is An Accounts Payable Audit?

    An accounts payable audit doesn’t just reveal overpayments that you can pursue to recover; it can also be used to identify common errors so you can take proactive measures to prevent them from happening in the future. Learn More

    What Is A Sales & Use Tax Audit?

    A reverse sales and use tax audit is the process of reviewing previous years of purchase data in an effort to find erroneous sales or use tax charges or accruals. Generally, these errors are due to a misapplication of tax laws by the seller or an oversight of an exemption provided by the state. Learn More
