We understand this can be a stressful and potentially overwhelming process. FAS will work with you to seamlessly navigate this process, ensuring that all required information is gathered and ultimately presented in a full and accurate account of the activity under your responsibility for discussion with your counsel or other third parties.
How We Work
Our proven methodology will transform details and clarify complex transactions,
resulting in a fiduciary accounting that provides you with confidence in your role
as trustee, executor, or conservator.
Trustee, Executor, and Conservator
We will work directly with your client, freeing you and your staff to work on other aspects of the case, while maintaining close communication with your office should any issues arise. Alternatively, we will work directly for you and your office, allowing you to maintain attorney/client privilege and control the fiduciary accounting process.
The FAS Process
We have a focused approach to meet the specialized accounting needs of trusts, estates, and conservatorships.
Our process begins with a short meeting or call to review the case. Upon completion of the initial review, the engagement letter is sent with a checklist or initial list of requested documents.
Upon receipt of the initial documents, we review and identify any additional information that will be required. All information requests are communicated quickly, and documents are stored securely.
Our experience and methodology allow us to move through the documentation quickly and effectively to track, document, and report all transactions and complete the fiduciary accounting schedules.
A draft of the fiduciary accounting is presented for your review with a summary of transactions requiring additional explanation, potential questions, and recommended supplemental schedules for clarity.
The fiduciary accounting is circulated to the trustee, executor, or conservator and their counsel for comments. The final accounting is delivered and ready for distribution or filing as needed.
