About Us

Grau & Associates is the leading provider of audit and attestation services to governmental agencies, municipalities, non-profit organizations and employee benefit plans. With 30 years of dedicated focus on auditing rules, regulations and procedures, we offer insight and efficiency unsurpassed in our industry. This translates to the highest quality audit at the most cost-effective rate. Our audits are delivered on time, every time.

We specialize in audits

Our focus has enabled us to develop a true specialization in auditing. We understand that there is increasing financial pressure and public scrutiny facing today’s public officials and non-profit directors. Our meticulous audit procedures meet and exceed compliance and reporting requirements to address risk. Our audits follow the Auditing Standards of the AICPA, Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS), and the Rules of the Auditor General of the State of Florida, as well as any other applicable federal, state and local regulations. Our reports are delivered in accordance with the client’s requirements.

We are pioneers in the paperless movement

Our firm is the “Paperless Paragon”. We were one of the first accounting firms to invest in the development and implementation of paperless technologies that improve and enhance our audit methodology. Through continuing professional education (CPE) and seminars, we help others understand the benefits of using technology that not only helps the planet, but also improves efficiencies and business processes related to accounting. We practice what we preach: 100% of our audit practice is completely paperless and we continually improve upon the technologies as they become available.

We develop long‐term relationships

You should expect more from your accounting firm than a signature in your annual financial report. Our concept of truly responsive client service emphasizes taking an active interest in the issues of concern to our clients and serving as an effective resource in dealing with those issues. We not only audit financial information with hindsight, but also consider the foresight you apply in managing operations. Our clients appreciate the proactive nature of our relationships and consider us more than auditors. We are frequently introduced by clients as strategic partners.

We encourage and require management participation

Unlike the majority of national and local firms, our engagement teams are comprised of an exceptionally large percentage of high-level audit professionals. 80% of each engagement is performed by members of our management team. This gives us the ability to quickly recognize problems and be more efficient as a result of our team’s decades of auditing experience. We also emphasize a continuous, year-round dialogue between our clients and our management team. We believe this open communication is critical to serving you and meeting your needs.

We are the best choice for your auditing needs

The combination of our modern approach and the active involvement of our most experienced and committed professionals results in a cost-effective and efficient audit delivered in a timely manner.
