Chapman Welton LLP



From inception in 1953, Chapman Welton LLP has demonstrated a commitment to responsive service and creative problem solving. We work closely with client management on financial statement presentation and reporting, and on the appropriate accounting treatment for transactions. We provide recommendations on balance sheet structuring, internal control, and constructive management letter comments.

We function as a sounding board, expert and business advisor on accounting issues and strategies, staffing and internal control issues.


Our team approaches our client’s financial statements with a solid knowledge of our client’s business practices, operations, and industrial sector.

We have an in-depth understanding of evolving accounting practices and changes in the regulatory environment. We provide an integrated plan that allows identification of new and emerging risks, and assesses the effectiveness of your internal controls.
Our audit assurance planning assesses the risk of material misstatement, based on factors inherent in the organization, knowledge that we may have of the operations and the concerns of management.

Estate & Tax Planning

Chapman Welton LLP assists clients in developing effective estate and trust plans. We integrate income tax planning with estate, tax and family law planning, keeping in mind that there are aspects of estate planning that are not tax driven.

We assist our clients in assessing their current financial situation and plan for the distribution of their assets upon their death. This planning process may involve the use of life insurance, various trust structures, or the restructuring of asset ownership.

Estate plans are reviewed on a regular basis to meet the changing needs of the client and changes to existing and/or pending legislation.
