You can ruin your reputation very quickly by allowing errors into your financial statements. Most investors see enough of them to spot errors - they're often glaring. Small and irrelevant things are ok, but material errors, disorganization, poor structure & presentation, and lack of consistency are a big red flag.
It is an industry standard and expectation that you (management) are guaranteeing the accuracy of the financial statements, even if you hired someone else to prepare them. It's an implied guarantee and you will be held liable for material errors, should disputes arise.
There is a reason it takes 5 years to become an accountant (masters are a standard now). It takes even longer to earn a CPA license. Most bookkeepers do not have an accounting degree or sufficient training to produce reliable financial statements that would be compliant with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
Make sure your financial statements are prepared by someone with a CPA license or sufficient experience and technical knowledge in accounting.
The financials do NOT need to be audited (that's expensive) or formally reviewed by a CPA but they do need to be correct to the best of your knowledge.
