Who is Charles Hall?
I am blogging from the perspective of a CPA who has been in public accounting since 1985. I previously owned my own firm (for six years), but, for the most part, I have worked for CPA firms in the range of 25 to 125 people. I am the quality control partner for McNair, McLemore, Middlebrooks & Co. where I provide technical support to approximately 100 professionals, most of whom are CPAs.
I have taught CPE classes since 1990 and do my best to make the complicated simple. I have spoken at conferences for the Georgia Society of CPAs and the Institute of Internal Auditors.
Some CPA firms allow me the privilege of performing their internal inspections, peer reviews, or simply to act as a sounding board for new ideas. I am a member of the Georgia Society of CPAs’ Peer Review Committee.
Since 2004, I have been a member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. The fraud cases I have worked on range from a few thousand to two million.
I am a consultant with the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia. I have written course material for the Institute and also teach their local government fraud class.
I am the author of The Little Book of Local Government Fraud Prevention and Preparation of Financial Statements & Compilation Engagements. Additionally, I am a contributing editor to PPC’s Guide to Cash, Tax, and Other Bases of Accounting.
