Quality is at the heart of what we do and it is instilled in our staff as the foundation of our approach to audit and accounting concerns. Our multiple SEC partners and SEC staff work and train together on the rules and interpretations of SEC and PCAOB full-time, giving us the best possible understanding of compliance results without guesswork. We anticipate your needs and your frequent deadlines and work within those parameters to always be there for you.
It all begins and ends with the quality of our audits as delivered from the newest intern to the most experienced partner.

MaloneBailey is a registered public accounting firm that is in exclusive company as one of only eleven firms in the world required to undergo an annual Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) inspection.MaloneBailey’s inclusion in this group of eleven annually inspected firms highlights the considerable volume of public company audit work we engage in. Our firm has audited annually over 100 issuers since 2007, been subject to one triennial inspection (2004) and ten annual inspections (2007-2016) and participates in over 800 filings each year.
The PCAOB was created by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. It is a private-sector, non-profit corporation whose stated purpose is to “oversee the auditors of public companies in order to protect the investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, fair and independent audit reports.” The Board has five members, each appointed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Section 104 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 requires the Board to conduct inspections of registered certified, public accounting firms. In those inspections, the Board assesses compliance with the Act, the rules of the Board, the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and professional standards in connection with the firm’s performance of audits, issuance of audit reports and related matters involving issuers. The Act requires the Board to conduct those inspections annually for firms that provide audit reports for more than 100 issuers and at least triennially for firms that provide audit reports for fewer issuers.
