About Lindley & Associates LLC

Our focus is not on the number of clients we serve, but on the high quality of our services, understanding of the organizational environment in nonprofit sector, and enthusiasm to work with the organizations serving the community.

We have served hundreds of nonprofit organizations since 2000. We perform approximately 40 - 50 audits annually, 95% which are nonprofits or organizations owned by nonprofits. We are an “audit firm" and specialize in nonprofits, especially those receiving government funding. This means our focus on a daily basis is audit standards, audit procedures and efficient audits. Our lead principal has been an auditor since 1991, which is an extraordinary amount of time participating on-site in audit fieldwork. The firm is a respected leader in nonprofit audit services.

We also perform the tax return preparation for these audit clients. Our clients range from $250,000 to $52 M in revenue. We have a high retention rate, including some clients from the first year we formed. We also provide one time audits for organizations applying for one-time funding. We look to the mission of the organization when selecting our clients.

AUDIT AND REVIEW

With service to hundreds of organizations in our fourteen years of service, we have extensive experience with the unique financial issues of nonprofits. We have gained a reputation for expertise as our people present at national conferences on nonprofit accounting issues. We have built efficiencies into our audit procedures, to save your organization time, effort and money.

TAX PREPARATION AND REVIEW

Nonprofits have challenges in tax returns that are both financial and best practice reporting. A state law requirement of filing with the Washington Secretary of State and the Internal Revenue Service adds a higher degree of responsible reporting. We can guide you through the process and make recommendations of how to follow the IRS compliance criteria.

GOVERNMENT FUNDING

We have a reputation as a firm with unique experience and qualifications in compliance auditing. Our people include a former government auditor and an eight year national instructor in compliance. Let our experience work for you.
