I have worked with Ray Clark and his team for 7 or 8 years now and they have been involved in all aspects of my business planning, accounting and tax preparation.  Ray's experience and advice has helped tremendously as the company has grown.  I have always found his services to be timely, professional and accurate.  I've never had any follow up issues or audits with any of his work.  And I would highly recommend Ray Clark and his staff to you.

Ray, it has been over 20 years that you have been doing our audit work and a Thank You is well over due. We really appreciate your monthly oversight of our accounting process, payroll, & bank account reconciliation.

Your tax accounting and tax returns have been flawless. They are always prepared timely and with accurate information provided for our quarterly payments. In our 20 plus years I only recall one minor error, and it was resolved with a letter from you and no penalties were assessed.

Hi my name is Burr, our business is in Murray, UT. And I've been doing business with Ray for goodness, 6 almost 7 years now. He's kept & done all of our taxes, he helps us with our payroll.  One thing I really appreciate about his operation there is they have a lot of specialists in different areas. You can always call there on the phone and get a hold of somebody, always! We've never had an issue that we haven't been able to resolve. And I find them very efficient, they've helped us out of a lot of questions that we've

had over the years and there's nothing they don't know about taxes or helping to do our payroll. I just can't say enough about Ray

and his staff.  They've been absolutely fantastic and if you're looking for an accounting service these would be your guys.

Clark & Clark PC accountants can and do perform different levels of accounting audits for a variety of businesses and organizations in and around the Salt Lake City area.

To define terms auditing is when we go through a business's books and we review them and we state that the books are fairly stated. CPAs can provide three opinions on financial statements.

The first opinion is what's called a compilation opinion. That opinion says that we have compiled these financial statements and that we have not expressed any opinion on them.

The second is a review which is negative assurance. This means we have gone through the books, look at everything and reviewed and asked questions to the company and we are unaware of any adjustments which need to be made to make them in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

The third is an audited assurance provided by CPA firm. It says that we have examined these financial statements and they are fairly stated according to GAAP. Most of the time we find that there are many reasons that companies would require these audits.

One reason could be that the company has a large loan out with the bank and the bank wants to know that their financial statements are correct and they don't want to receive them from the company themselves. In other words the banks wants to make sure that everything's okay on the loan that the company has out with them.

Another example are companies are owned by a large number of members. One company that we work for is owned by over 300 members. If they want to call in and get a credit report or be a member of their association they buy a membership. And since there are so many members out there that own part of the company they want to have the assurance that the company's financials are fairly stated correctly.  So we perform an audit they can then share with their “member owners”.

Whether you are a company, a bank or credit union, a church, a utility or any other organization or group that should or already has their books audited, if you have a question please feel free to call us at

801-521-4538 and speak to Ray Clark, CPA, MBA to see if we can help you and your company.

Business owners often ask us, “what is the different between bookkeeping and accounting services”?

Bookkeepers or the bookkeeping process can be described as the manual process or daily recording or entering of transactions, sales and expenses.  Accounting takes the data that bookkeeping enters, first making sure it is categorized correctly, and then generates reports and analyzes them to make decisions or changes in the business.

A simple example would be an outsourced or internal bookkeeper might enter all the sales for the week along with commissions on those sales.  An accountant can then generate weekly, monthly & quarterly sales reports and share with the owner the details of what is being sold by product, category, size and so on.

With our accounting services you can have these types of monthly or quarterly reports (sales & expense reports, income statements, balance sheet and so on) so you can see & manage both the expense and sales sides of your business.

We work with and support a variety of accounting software packages and programs (QuickBooks and PeachTree are just a couple of many our clients use) and can do all your accounting or oversee your internal staff.

And because we are located right here in the Salt Lake City area, we take the time to get to know you and your business’s accounting needs so we can support you.

In addition to our Accounting Services we also can support you with a range of small business bookkeeping and related accounting services that we can personalize to meet your business needs.

Here are our accounting related services:
