Sciarabba Walker participates in the continuing education, professional standards, and economic development programs of a number of organizations, including:
- PrimeGlobal – an association of 300 independent accounting firms in 80 countries
- American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)
- New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA)
- Association of Credit Union Internal Auditors (ACUIA)
- Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce
- Ithaca Area Economic Development (IAED)
Not only do these associations help us keep you informed on the tax code, business trends, and opportunities; they provide access to expertise in other states and even other countries. For example, one of our clients negotiated a distribution deal in Puerto Rico using a PrimeGlobal intermediary. Another opened an office in Singapore.
AICPA sets the standards for the U.S. accounting profession, including peer review. We strongly support this professional standards examination, as do many other leading CPA firms. In fact, peer review is now mandatory for CPA firms that provide attest services in New York State. Conducting peer reviews of other AICPA member firms is a Sciarabba Walker specialty. Dave Iles, our managing partner, is past chair of the NYSSCPA peer review committee.
Sciarabba Walker & Co., LLP is an independent member firm of PrimeGlobal, a worldwide association of independent accounting firms and business advisors. PrimeGlobal does not and cannot offer any professional services to clients. Each independent member of PrimeGlobal is a separate firm and an independently legal entity. PrimeGlobal is not a partnership and independent member firms are not acting as agents of PrimeGlobal or other independent member firms.
