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., LLC 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, the Institute of Internal Auditors, the Georgia Government Finance Officers Association, the County Officials Association of Tennessee, the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. I also provide continuing education classes to CPA firms.
I provide practice management consulting services to CPA firms.
Additionally, I perform internal inspections and peer reviews for other CPA firms.
In the past, I served as a member of the Georgia Society of CPAs’ Peer Review Committee and as chairman of the Governmental Accounting and Auditing 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 and have written course material for the Institute.
I am the author of The Little Book of Local Government Fraud Prevention and Preparation of Financial Statements & Compilation Engagements. Also, I am a contributing editor to PPC’s Guide to Cash, Tax, and Other Bases of Accounting.
