Whether you are expanding existing financial arrangements, seeking new capital, considering affiliation or embarking on other strategic initiatives, you need assurance regarding the integrity of the financial statements that support those decisions.
At HORNE, our opinion is more than simply providing compliance.

Financial Forecasting, Modeling and Disclosures
The uncertainty around changing payment models and reporting standards could have significant impacts on what to expect and what is required to be disclosed.

We deploy methodologies based on industry and organizational hard trends to develop assumptions that provide you with confidence and to fully meet emerging reporting standard requirements.
