Michael Young


At CLA, I work with clients from many industries performing compilation, review, and audit engagements. While a client may see only a financial statement or tax return as the end product, I strive to understand the businesses of my clients in order to provide excellent service in any way possible.

I work with clients in sectors such as construction and real estate, manufacturing and distribution, telecommunications, and employee benefit plans.

Over the past 18 years, I have become specialized in employee benefit plan audits covering defined contribution plans (401ks), 403b plans, and defined benefit or pension plans. On a regular basis I attend various seminars(including past national AICPA employee benefit plan conferences) on current issues impacting employee benefit plan audits and will update the firm for any significant accounting/auditing issues related to employee benefit plan audits.
